Comments: A great walk through the past. BHS 1963-64, what a 'riot'. So many lost memories are revived by reading through some of the guestbook entries. Lived at Fort Kobbe, remember some names and faces but oh so vaugely. Sue Green, Ramona Rios.. the teen club at Kobbe kids at BHS during the flag incident. ROTC class when we received word of Kennedy's assasination. Wow, long time ago! Many other faces glimmer and fade without being able to put a name to them. Goofy Falls, great HS field trip, learning to scuba dive in the pool at Fort Kobbe, diving in the Perlas, sailing with the Martins (Cole) his brother and dad on their Nova Scotia Schooner. So many hours of fishing off the pilot boat pier on the Pacific side. Joining the navy at Rodman in 64.. A long time ago! I know, tonight in my sleep, that some of those faces will return with names and I'll forget them before I awake. Thanks for the memories. Would be fun to hear from those that might remember some of those events and people. Maggie, danged if I can remember her last name, but she had the most beautiful pony tail and dimples to match!

Comments: Flash backs! Really enjoyed viewing the pictures of the Canal Zone. My father, the late Colonel John Raymond Walker, Jr., US Army, was Post Commander at Southern Command Headquarters, Quarry Heights, CZ from August 1963 till June 1966. We lived at Quarters 39 for about eighteen months before moving down to the second level and Quarters 20. I was shot in the right shoulder on the porch of #39 when the shooting started that January evening in 1964. The wound was superficial but it scared my Mother so much that she fainted out cold. The next door neighbor saw what happened and called for medical assistance. Sometime passed when finally a jeep and two Army Medics barreled up the road and stopped at your house. They found my Mother on the floor in a pool of my blood. They went to work looking for a gunshot wound and found none. Finally one of the young soldier's came over to where I was propped up against the wall and asked if I was OK. I had put my finger in the bullet hole to stop the blood from gushing. I extracted my finger and answered "I think so?" as blood spurted from my shoulder. "Forget the women…" the Medic yelled, "It's the boy", and with that I passed out from shock. Those were the most fantastic years of my life. Thanks for the memories. John Walker, US Navy Retired.

Comments: This link is one of the BEST preparations for a visit I have ever had. The tone is distinctly American, natch, and highly informative, therefore friendly in feeling. I have enjoyed the bulletin board with its energetic and sometimes passionate love of the homeland, Bill Fall's maps, the cam-corder view of Miraflores. And I SHOULD have lived here in 1941-42 but something got in the way. Many thanks. Constance
