Many fond memories
What a great page. Brought back so many memories of my time there. My father was an E-8 assigned to TRADOC from 1972 through 1979. We lived at 23 Murray St. across from the Corps of Engineers building. My Mother was obsessed with winning “Yard of the Month”
We rode our bikes everywhere in the summer. I learned to swim and rollerskate at the YMCA. The Y had a “Summer Fun Club”. We sold candy to raise funds for it in the spring. Then during summer vacation, we would be taken on trips to places like Bush Gardens, Kings Dominion as well as historic places like Jamestown, Yorktown and Williamsburg.
There were always plenty of activities for the “brats” including soccer and baseball leagues. We also had a movie theater and of course the beach.
My first dog is buried in the pet cemetery on top of the moat.
I have so many fond memories of such a special place.
