Hello to my military family. I was stationed in B co. 299th Panzer Kaserne. I was called Snortin' Horton. We used to smell the raw sewerage and swamps before breakfast. Bring back, Be All You Can Be. I'm old skool and not changing. I'm still proudly serving. I learned true soldering from the early 80s, Big Red One. I salute all of you---Travel Lite family...

Hi Cooke Barracks friends, I was stationed from 1978-1982 CSC 1/26 Scout Platoon, I posted before but no one that knew me contacted me yet, so if there is any one except Mike Roberts who knows me please write. Anyway I tell ya It hurts to see what they did to the place up there. But the time I spent there I cannot get out of my head and life, it was great and rememberable. Even after it closed down many Americans stay to live but little by little the went
back home. Now only a handful are still here somewhere. I married my girlfriend Inga and we're still together and we always check the guestbook but I guess not so many know about this site of the ones who were there when I was there. Does anybody have the yearbooks from 1978-1982 I would like to see them and if possible make a copy. I've seen that they did it with the classmate yearbook and put it online so if possible could those be put on line?

I was at Cooke Barracks with the 48th Transportation Company in 1966 to December 14th 1967.I was in the engineering department where we took care of all the generator's and aircraft ground handling equipment for the hanger. In 1967 when SP-5 Ashby went home I was promoted to SP-5 and was in charge of running the department. We had a blast ! What a Great group of guys we had in the department. Jim Withrow, Pete Sabo, Spike Blazack, Jim Ryan, Sy Orlofsky, and a guy named Shofft. I can't remember his first name.
Some of the best memories of my life are from that time. The friends, travel, the people and the beauty of Europe and Germany. I was lucky enough to visit Austria, Italy, France, Switzerland and East and West Berlin. Berlin was during the 50th anniversary of the Bolshevik Revolution when the Czar of Russia and his family were murdered. There were Russian flags every 6 feet all over East Berlin. Berlin was so interesting and wow what a trip !
It's had to believe that was 48 years ago. Like I tell all my family and friends enjoy your life and you do the same. If any of you would like to drop me a line feel free to do so.
Have a Great day and enjoy this site !!!

I was on the top floor of the HQ building as chief clerk in the G3 Section of 8th Divsion Headquarters in 1956-57. General Tom Watlngton was Divsion commander, with General Harold Johnson as ADC. He later became U. S. Army Chief of Staff in D.C. Some of the officers were: Col. Ben H. Ward, Col. Alpo Martinnen, Col. Triono, Major Massey, Capt. Duffield.
Sgt Orville Hughes was G3 section head, and some of my good friends were; Phil Cavanaugh, Elwin Northrup, John Fortier, Jay Laning,and Sgt Root.
We were billeted in a building with squad rooms which was up the hill from the bowling alley, easy access to beer, and we often went on the Army sponsored Sunday tours that visited places all over Germany, or a 35 cost on an Army bus with a civilian driver. These were good times at a good location and we all disliked being relocated to another base at Bad Krousnak
