Welcome to the CookeBarracks.com Guestbook. 79% of 242 poll respondents said their time at Cooke was either "great" or "the best"; 14% reported "good". Only 7% reported "not so good", or "not good".

This is actually Jim's niece, Jane. Uncle Jim died this past summer (2014). While going through his personal items we found a small photo album from his time in Goeppingen (Nov. 1962-1963). I presume he was at Cooke Barracks, although nothing actually says that. There are pictures of a Dec. 1, 1962 parade, and a lot of pictures of the golf club. There are also pictures of him with "Mills" and "Hayes". My favorites of are him and Ed Wedz drinking from gigantic steins. If you are looking for Jim, it's nice to know he's remembered by his army buddies. If you know who these other people are, I'd love to hear from them, too.

I posted an earlier version but I guess that section is kaput.
I was stationed at Cooke from Jan 64 to June 1, 66, lived in 504th Admin huge building. R.I.P. Flugplatz. Was originally in pay section in PSD, the Pernsonnel Actions, then whined until I got assigned to PIO, which was my career, writing for newspapers and magazines. There I served with Lt. Levins who signed in above, as did Freddie Jo Hamilton, editor of the Rolling Review. I was a flunkie, writer and finally radio chief. We all miss Maj. Vincent Werder and MSg Russ Cogswell, who left us a number of years ago. We get together every five years or so.
My fondest memories are the drives down the autobahn to Neu Ulm and Nurnberg and Munich in the Bug that was owned by the best clerk ever, our own radar, Salome Alvarado, who wound up being a reserve Sergeant Major in Iraq with the MPs.
Looking for long lost friends like a fellow named Jaeger or Yaeger who was from Calif. I wonder if he knows that he and Maj. Werder were featured in a book by Ludovic Kennedy. John S. Steel(e?), Glenn Gould who turned me onto my lifelong admiration of the Stones, and Charlie I. Smith of Chicago, a real brother if there ever was one, and Willie, my old-double-pinochle partner--I still remember the night we won a C-note. I have some photos that I will share. I now have the most comprehensive website of the frontier history of northwest Washington, and write and edit for magazines and books. Website: Skagit River Journal of History & Folklore, http://www.skagitriverjournal.com Oh, almost forget. I often talked with Chuck Parvin in Albany Oregon, who passed away in 2011, and I hear from Blaine C. Bemis, Peenie-Weenie, who is in Idaho. **Seatbelts were installed but not in use **No hamsters were harmed in the making of this movie Brevet Corporal retired
