PALMER, Dawn Marie   1960   46x46
@ Chas: 1957-59
Cheyenne, WY
02-25-02 Comments: So many memories have been with me through the years. For those of us who had the privilege of going to schools overseas, our friends are those for life. I lost contact of my friends but the memories have stayed with me.  My brother Dennis also went to High School there and lives in Denver, Co. Debbie and Marty were in grade school and live in Cheyenne too. Diane, the baby sister, was born there and lives in Ft Worth, Texas.  I have four wonderful children. Three boys and a girl. Six grandchildren who make my world go round!  Jenelle, this is a wonderful site and I would love to hear  from any and all. Thank you for bringing back the memories.  I hadn't heard of the reunions but next time I hope to see you all.

jpnote:  2002 - Dawn and I went on a road trip together:  Dawn drove from her home in WY to Dallas - left her car at my house and we headed for San Antonio in my Chad Van  to have dinner with some old friends.  We stayed a day or two and headed to Houston; a great little East Texas town - Nacogdoches - on to Shreveport - to Mississippi and home of The King.  We did the tourist thing then headed to Hot Springs for a couple more days of antiquing and dipping our toes in the downtown hot springs pool.  Dipping is all we did - too hot to submerge.  We drove on back to Dallas and a day or so later, Dawn drove home to Wyoming.  We had a great time and maybe we'll do it again sometime.

jpnote:  11-2006 - Dawn's husband, Neal, passed away after a long illness. We extend our sympathies to Dawn and the family.

jpnote:  We went to Chas 2007 Commemoration in Chateauroux September 29-30, 2007.

I'm glad to find this site. Most people seem to keep in touch with at least some of the people they went to HS with but I don't know where anyone is who went to Chas. Anyone know whereabouts of Curtis Truel, [found]  Truett Karstetter,  [found]  Barney Eiserloh, [address available]  Don Cram [address available] or  John Smith [perhaps in San Bernardino, CA]?

2/4/00 -  Great site, Jenelle. I'm sorry I missed the reunions, but I hope not to miss the next one. The pix are terrific--how come the guys still have hair? I visited Chad in '95 and can report the following: the base is a high security Army post (no pix); 410 looks great and has a McD on the road in; Brassioux is its own city and looks old (teen club is gone/replaced by a French 7-11); the chateau @ Balsan and school are boarded up. Pierre, son of Clarence, brother of Ron, write me. Jim (59-62) (connected Perry Fletcher & Jim)

PHILLIPS, Patricia "Patti" - 1961

Indianapolis, IN
Comments: Went to Chateauroux Dependent HS from 1956-1960. Have many memories from this time and enjoy emailing folks from that time. I lost track of many of my old friends throughout the years and would like to find them. I have two children. Daughter 22, Heather, who gave me my first grandbaby this year 2000, and a son, Brian, 30 who lives in Atlanta, GA. Would love to hear from you all!  06/24/2001 - Comments: I've been in touch with several friends and acquaintances from my time in France. We have laughed together remembering some of our excursions. i.e. The Paris Choir Trip of 1959. Yeah! Great memory. I still have 13 copies of C'est la Vie! I've been here in Indy since 1972. I have two children, a son and daughter, and my daughter gave me a granddaughter last year. I've decided that's the only reason we have children - grandkids! Aren't they wonderful? I've been single for a 100 years. I tend to work in customer service, it's probably because I still talk too much. I remember getting into trouble a lot while in Chad High for that. I'm afraid I even asked a teacher to wait a minute while I finished talking!!! If any of you remember me, or not, I'd enjoy hearing from you. Yeah Chad High!
America Grieves - 09/14/2001 Comments: All citizens are upset and tearful about this horrible attack on our country. But I imagine that those of us, because of our military background, feel the impact through its relationship with the military.  I am sad for our country, very fearful that this could start another world war. I certainly hope it doesn't as we all do.  I think of Chad often, especially since some of us have connected via the internet. Yay Chad High and it's memories for all of us. God Bless our Country
03/21/2002 Comments: I don't visit the site very often, but I certainly enjoy seeing the names of those who also lived in Chad. I have many pleasant memories of my time in ol' Chad High.  I also have some pictures that I really need to send to Jenelle! Even 13 old C'est la Vie's!!!!  Pleasant memories....

@ Chas: 61-64

2/13/01 - I have been having a ball reading all the comments and seeing all the names of people that I had all but forgoten about over the years. Got on about eight months ago and have been in touch with several friends from the Chateauroux days. Memories come back slowly at first. Remembering days in the band and the trip to Madrid. Spent two years in Weisbaden after we left France and have been in touch with friends from there also. I'm just signing on today(2-12-01) and will get to thank Jenelle in person next monday as we are having a hoedown in Arlington, Tx. It'll be my first get together and I'm thrilled. Hope to be talking with some of you soon.

The photo above was taken in Arlington, TX at the Hoedown Bob spoke of above.

PRADO, Cyndi  - 1966
From: Riverside, CA

2/11/00 - This is so amazing! I NEVER thought I would see or hear from any of my old classmates since they closed the base (isn't the Internet wonderful?). I was in the graduating class of 1966 (last class to graduate before they closed the base) - 42 students, remember? My dad retired from March AFB I have been living here in California for 30 years now. I am married with two teenage daughters and would love to hear from any of my classmates. My sister, Pat was a junior then and she graduated from Lakenheath in 1967. If you want to contact her too, let me know!
