Cooke Barracks Guestbook

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". Clearly, Cooke Barracks was a magical place and, perhaps, that's why so many people visit CookeBarracks.com. CookeBarracks.com was born October 2002 and is responsible for uniting many, many people separated years ago.

This is where those who served at Cooke find each other. You're invited to add your entry so others can find you. For the past ten years, lots and lots of reunions have been made via this Guestbook

We were stationed there from January 1983 - August 1989. Dave was a Motor Sergeant in the 4/16 Motor Pool. I worked as a secretary in the DEH. We had a chance to visit back in November 2001 when we visited our daughter and her family in Stuttgart. She and I (Merrie) literally cried. If you ever get a chance to go back, don't. Graffiti, trash, no green areas in the housing area. It was like visiting a ghetto. :(

I was stationed there in late 74-77. I ran the Post Gym and sports programs. I was with HQ company and lived in the barracks to the immediate left, after going on Post. I played softball and basketball for the post team. I met my husband there, Kenneth Wayne Turner - he was a Blue Spader. We rodeo'd during the summer. He became president of the European Chapter and went to the Military National Finals in Yuma, Arizona. Great times, great people.

Was with the 1/26th CSC scout platoon from August 1976 - March 1979. I had many good friends there and lots of good and hard times. I remember going to England and training with the Royal Green Jackets, spending time in the Alps at German mountain school, many Graf and Hohenfels field exercises. I also remember going to France for honor guard duty in the remembrance of D-day. Sgt. Aten, Big Bird, and so many others in our platoon and other platoons left me with many memories. Scouts Out.

Attached to 4th Armored but was from 97th SigBn in Boblingen. Worked ALO (Air Liaison ops) with Capt. Pedjoe, USAF. Partners in my rig were Hans Redl and later Jim Kranz.

Returned to Goeppingen in 2001 but couldn't find the place. Someone said it was now condos.

Good memories. Fooled around in a theater group "Act 4 Playhouse", put shows on in the Service Club, Lt. Kent brown directed the bunch.

There is no cold like a German Winter.

Love to hear from Kranz or Redl or barracks mates.

My father, Donald Burke, was a medical officer 1st Lieutenant with the 28th Division. He was called up in 1951, first to Camp Attebury, IN, then deployed with the division to Germany, apparently Cooke Barracks. I was born in January that year, so have no memory, but do have stories my parents told. My older sister, mother and I joined my father, and we lived in a house in Goeppingen. There was a young woman named Else who helped my mother. Else had a boyfriend named Tony Wolf who was an artist (painted portraits, landscapes, etc.). I would be interested to hear from anyone who was there at the time, or knew people who were there. I'm very interested in learning about Tony Wolf - I have several of his paintings. Thanks!

I was in 1st A.G. Admin Co, 1st Infantry Division (Forward) from Oct '73 to Nov '74. I was a 12B, slated for D Co, !st Engineers, but Admin Co ran the replacement center and needed a mail clerk. I had worked at the Post Office before entering the Army, so I was chosen. When we got a new First Sergeant a year later, he got rid of me, sending me down to Delta Engineers, at Neu Ulm.

I can't say that I enjoyed the Army, but the Flugplatz was a much better duty station than Wiley Barracks at Neu Ulm.

My dear cousin Sam Delozier was the pilot of the helicopter which capsized in 1963 while placing the steeple on a church bell tower.

Our part of the family was living in Bangkok, Thailand at the time and were all devastated at the news. I wonder if there is anyone on here who knew my cousin Sam? He all never be forgotten thanks to the tribute on here to him.

Best,

July 1971 – March 1972
As a draftee who originally had orders to Vietnam as an 11b Infantry Cooke Barracks was a drastic but appreciated departure from the expected.
I was assigned to the 1st Armored Division HHC G¬1 Safety office on the post. I was the only military working in the office. A DOD civilian GS – 12 (Jack Yackman retired air force) ran the division safety operation and he had a German National as 2d in charge (Mr. Broach. I was the grunt sp4. In the military I reported to the G-1 Sgt Major, rarely saw him.
I lived on post in the main 1st AD Division HHC barracks
I got married in Dec 1971 on post in the chapel and moved to a one room “ apt” in the basement of a highrise in Fawndale :sp:
With a 5 month early out we returned to Pa & secured employment. I was called back to temporary active duty as a "filler" the summer after discharge.
I then enlisted in the active reserve. Stayed in the active reserve system 26 yrs and retired as a CW3
I have undeveloped photos of the area. When I find them will make an earnest effort to post them.
Cudos to you for a great web site

I was stationed at Cooke Barracks in 1956 and 1957 when that was the location for Division Headuarters, 8th Inf Division and had moved from Ft Carson to Goep.
I was chief clerk in the G3 Section two doors from the CG Watlington and under Col. Ben Ward in G3.
General Harold K. Johnson was ass't commander who later became Army Chief of Staff in Wash. D.C. I have a lot of movies that I made during the stay there and on the Sunday trips that we made to surrounding areas, Stuttgart, Heidelberg, Munich, etc.
We were billeted in the first unit building past the bowling alley and spent a lot of time downtown in Goeppingen.

Really good duty and didn't want to leave when it was time to go home, left many good friends behind.

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?

Hey There

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

Hello Everyone.

I am trying to help a German girl find her American Grandfather. She doesn't have much info. His name is James D. Coston. He is between 74-78yrs old. He was stationed at Cooke Barracks during most if not all of the 1960's. I do not know his unit/company/or MOS. She tells me he was with the Big Red One. I'm hearing that the Big Red One may not have been in this part of Germany so I am not sure how correct that info may be. In 1962 He won some type of shooting award with the Rod and Gun Club. She believes he may have been from Texas or Arizona. He was married to Anne Angel or Engel in late 1960s. If you recognize these names or know of any other sites I may search please email me and let me know. I am currently going through the guest book list and emailing those who were stationed during this time frame. Thank you all for your service and any assistance you may provide. I've read a lot of comments and it seems Cooke Barracks and Goppingen were a great assignment.
Sincerely,
Jill Newhouse

PS- I did belong to the 74 TFS (A-10) Flying Tigers Squadron. So the Army loved us.... which hopefully counts for something since I was Air Force. That's for all you Army folks that like to razz the Air Force folks. Hope this make many of you smile! and Hey, I don't mind the Razzing! Have a great day!

I was stationed at Cooke Baarracks, assigned to HHC 1st IDF (Aviation Section) from Feb 79 thru July 1982.

A small section, we had two Hueys and four OH-58s. I was a crew chief, tech inspector, maintenance superviser as well as various other additional duties such as POL and Safety NCO. Quite a task since for some time, I was the only 49C (refeuling truck) driver. I'll never forget the drive to Neu Ulm for JP-4!

Lunch at Maggie's, after work at the Rod & Gun and the Nineteenth Hole made me forget how busy and how demanding my 'job' was.

That small aviation section had some of the best Officers, Pilots and men that I have ever encountered. Sorry about the Court Martial!

My time there was life changing!

Cooke Barracks was my first assignment in the Army. Beyond a shadow of a doubt it was the best assignment I ever had. I was in the scout platoon of the 1/26 Blue Spaders. SFC Aten was my platoon Sergeant and I will never forget his approach to being my leader. He was the reason I stayed in the Army until retiring in 1995. My times at Cooke Barracks will always remain in my memory as some of the best times of my life!

I'm looking for anyone who was stationed at cooke barracks geoppingen from 1988-1991
D-company 1st platoon.
My name is David Wilson and I live in Washington State. I stumbled onto this Website by accident today 16/Jan/2015. I about had a heart attack when I came across a picture of my friends drinking on the benches in the backyard. The real HEART ATTACK came when my friend said "dude, that's you sitting there with them."
I am utterly speechless..... so many memories I will never forget. My day has been filled with laughter, sadness and tears. I am truly blessed to have met each and every person in that picture. So many friends I wish I could see and talk to. I spent so many years lost in thought wondering what each one is up too today.
If any of my Brothers from Delta company 4/16 Inf are still around please drop me a line.
PHELPS, KHAL, VINNIE. RAMIREZ, MA DEROSA (with all the pictures you could never seem to find to go with all the LIES lol)-I Luv ya Bro. Yates.
SFC Sharma, Richard your still awesome in my eyes wITH that BIG ASS POMPADOUR HAIRDO. I have never forgotten about the time you left me in the middle of F*#ken nowhere hungover at some German girls house I picked up the night before at the club. I woke up buck ass naked with not only the chick I picked up, but her friend as well. I only had 20 deutcmarks in my pocket, no underwear, 1 sock and 75 miles away from the base. Oh yeah my date couldn't speak English either. I have told that story so many times, and it's still funny.
I know you will never forget about our little trip into Saudi Arabia. I have to say, it still makes me shiver to the core. If your still out there, email me, text me or something
360-990-1052. dav777w@Hotmail.com
Take care

I was able to reconnect with several of my old buddies from my time in Gerp. I was in Echo 4/16 from Jan 86 until March 88. Looking back now, almost 26 years since I left, I am left with some good memories. I do wish I hadn't had quite so much to drink while there but I do have some interesting stories.

I loved the field, especially when we did one of those really big operations with German and Other American units. I remember one called Franconia Shield. What a blast that was running around the German countryside.

I also enjoyed the alerts, they were usually a good time too. They always seemed to come at 4:30 on a Monday though.

I served in the 504 MI Detachment as a counterintelligence agent from Nov 69 to Nov 71. My wife, Jerie, and I lived off base in the tiny village of St. Gotthardt with Hans and Thea Stumpf in their basement apt. People I worked with were Pete Dean, Don Tess, Jimmy Berardinelli, FNU Billeter, Jim McHugh, Ron Fanning, Peter Koch, Scott Cooper and Jay LNU. Several others I can't remember the names. Two of our best friends were June and Pat Mcnew. Cooke Barracks was a wonderful place and I still have so many great memories. We traveled thruout Europe and even got to Tunisia for X-mas.
