Comments My happiest memories relived thru this site "sigh" Bravo to the site creators!!
My Dad was stationed at Albrook I think 1960-64
I had some great friends.. Cindy Hembrey(sp?)(I would drive your maid crazy eating all that Campbells tomato soup with tons of crackers not to mention the raw kool-aide with sugar!)
Alayda Pasamante,(You and me and Cindy played all the time but I do remember one thing.... radio BOMBA, do you??)Norma Hidalgo,(Remember those Beatles tennis shoes you had??)The Scully Family,(Crystal and all her brothers..being our neighbors HAD to be a challenge for you all) Janet Corwin,(We used to play jaxs together remember??)Bobby, Billy, and Maureen Fowler,(You lived at the top of the hill) Paula Winter,(Do you remember the Penny Bright doll you gave me one year from Christmas??) and so many others I just can't remember their names at 48yrs. I did run into Diane Nordyke and her brothers in Southern California. I want ginups too! If they could only get thru customs. "sigh" Please contact me if you knew me and my sibs, Carmen, Carlos,Teresa, Lewis and my mom and dad,
Edilia and Lewis. Dad passed away this past October 2002. Does anyone remember Ms DeLaPina??? Carlos the swim team coach for Albrook swim team??
It's nice to know I will always be a zonian and have you all as a zone family who I can share fond memories and friendships with. Best Wishes to all for a Happy Life!

High School and Class Diablo Heights and Ft Clayton
Comments Dad pulled several tours, some at Howard and the last at Albrook so my little brother and I attended the Balboa elementary school, the elementary school at Ft Clayton and Diablo Heights (1966-71). What a completely FANTASTIC place to be a kid! We all went back in late 1998 just to look around. Albrook was an abandoned ghost town... it was the strangest experience of my life... like an episode of the Twilight Zone where everyone had just stopped whatever they were doing and left. Everything was exactly as we remembered it. We miss it so much! As a single guy now I could go back and just hang out for awhile, I guess. But have no idea what kind of a welcome Americans are getting down there right now, and doubt I could find any paying work. Anyway, hello to Tracy Arnold and David Black, wherever you are!

Comments If I were to visit Panama (Coco Solo and Gatun), how much of it would look like it did in 1968 when I left???
I have told my kids many stories about my stay in "the zone" and can almost smell the sweetness of Pina Beach and the Gatun Spillway each time. I try to forget the smell of the crushed crabs that crossed the road at night (about half-way between Coco Solo and Margarita). They were a mess to hitchhike thru on my way home from the Ft Gulick, Ft Davis, and Margarita Teen Club dances.

Comments My dad was the pastor at Margarita Union Church from 73-76. I was young, but living in Panama was the best time of my life. I experienced severe culture shock when we moved back to the states. Does anyone remember "Santa Claus" coming around in a truck in Margarita? And the bonfires? And being able to ride your bike ANYWHERE? Was it really safer there or just the era? Does anyone remember Purple Passion soda? Ah, to be a kid again...

Comments We love this web site especially the canal camera at Miraflores. We were stationed there and visit our family in Panama every couple of years. We were married at Howard and attended church at First Baptist of Balboa.Our latest visit was last July & August enjoying the Rain Forest Resort & De Cameron.
Amador is also quite nice. Thanks for
the great web site and the enmormous amount of info. We miss the Canal Zone very much.

Comments I'm glad to have found this site, it brings back a myriad of emotions engulfed by an overall happiness. I lived on Howard AFB 81-84 and attended Fort Kobbe Elementary School for the K-2nd grades. Although I can remember the names of my teachers, Mrs. Craddock, Ms. Bahr, and Ms. Williams (Hello and thank you if you are reading this!), I cannot remember a single name of any of my classmates, so if I seem like someone you knew feel free to drop me a line!

Great site, keep up the good work!
