I was at Cooke Barracks from the beginning of 1975 until sometime towards the end of 1977. Being in Germany was a good time, traveling and meeting people. I also met and married my wife there and we are still together after 38 years. I was an MP there and then served for another 29 years in civilian law enforcement. But I got my start at Cooke Barracks.

Thanks for providing a location to discuss one of the Army's best kept secrets.
I was at Cooke Barracks from 87-90, and was the Commander of the 193rd from 87-89. As great as Cooke Barracks was it was the people that made it even better. I experienced the best days of my life there and also the worst. We lost three of our own coming home from training in 1988. RIP Don Byrant, Jim Bollinger and Mike Dawson.
I was stationed in Europe in 2002 and visited Cooke Barracks when I was in Stuggart and it was hard to recognize anymore. I will always remember Planet Gurp and the great folks that lived there. Anyway thanks for setting this site up.

I was a dependent at Cooke Barracks in the early to mid '50s. I attended third, fourth and fifth grades at the elementary school, which as I recall was located just down the road from where we lived in military housing. Also, as I recall, the housing was up a hill from the actual post. I would love to see any pictures that anyone might have from that time of the school, the housing or the post. Or any memories anyone might like to share from that time. I don't remember, for instance, any of my teachers' names.
