Cooke Barracks gates

Welcome to! Our Mission Statement: To unite friends and share memories with those who were part of U.S. Army Cooke Barracks near Goeppingen, Germany.

A recent poll confirmed what most of us thought: 79% of 242 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 was born October 2002 and is responsible for uniting many, many people separated years ago.

In support of our mission, please find within:

a guestbook roster for everyone to sign so others can search for you. With a little luck, a long-lost friend will find your entry and another reunion will be made. It actually happens here a lot. For example, after 10 years running this site and 41 years searching for my friend and MP patrol partner, Tom Weis stumbled onto and another reunion was made.

Even if you don't have a favorite memory to share, please sign the guestbook and include your unit and dates served. The guestbook is our only database for others to search for others. You must include your first name, last name and email address for your entry to post. Your email address is protected and hidden. This site substitutes your email address with a link so others can write you. Please, no advertising, e.g., visit such and such site, or links to other pages.

...a personal note about the guestbook: On May 12, 2012, after 10 years running this site and 41 years searching for my great friend and MP patrol partner, Tom Weis stumbled onto and another reunion was made. My search for Tom was the reason for the birth of this site. Here's proof the guestbook works. --david wisniewski, founder,

    a message board for everyone to chat about those great times. Don't forget to sign the Guestbook, too. Please, no commercial advertising or "visit my site" links.

a photo album; our jewel. The first page you'll see contains photosrepresenting a photo album. If you click on any photo within the album, you'll see the option to add a public comment to that photo. Your comments are "album frosting"!

To add photo comments, you must sign up for a free Google account. Signing up takes about 30 seconds. Very simple. It will mean a great deal to me and everyone here if you will spend the 30 seconds to acquire your free Google account so you can add comments...


Anyone with a free Google account can create their own photo album. This means they can contact me to share their album link and it will be added to for everyone to enjoy (see links at bottom of page).

Alternatively, you can email photos to me for posting to the photo albums (address near bottom of this page). If absolutely necessary, you can also postal mail your photos to me and I'll scan them and upload them on your behalf (but it will be very much appreciated if you can try to arrange for a friend to scan your photos for you (so I don't become a biological appendage of my scanner). Your help will prevent this becoming a fulltime job (which it already is ).
