Hi, Mark! I was in 6th grade when you were a Senior. I'm looking at your yearbook pic now, crew-cut, glasses, nickname "Uke" and quite the pin-striped suit with bow tie! I feel as if I know all of you just because I used to look at your yearbook pics as I couldn't wait to be at the point all of you were!  I just noticed I had written my address in my '65 yearbook: 1254B-Villamar. I'm so glad I found this group! Hoping to make it to the reunion even if I probably won't know anyone! Regards, Linda Carlson

Linda Carlson (1966)

I'm looking forward to the Reunion, I never thought I'd see ANYONE from those days. It's weird, on a trip to Africa I met a couple and they asked about my background, I mentioned Gitmo and they said a good friend of theirs had gone to High School there, her name was Barbara Griffen. I couldn't believe it, I didn't even have to check the yearbook as I knew who that was. As a 5th grader I LOVED her pic for the Navy Exchange as it showed her getting a diamond ring which was MAGIC to me at that time. Was able to contact her, we traded a few emails, and when I found out about this website I told her about it. Hoping to finally meet her and many other yearbook friends. Can't wait!

Hey guys just wanted to let everyone know that not on Facebook about a travel club i joined.. they are in pre launch but you can join now for free to look around.

on the face it looks like a buisness op and it is but it also give awesome travel discountsand 500$ to use towards travel and much much more.

To get in there are several plans but the  base one is 70$ + 34.95$ a month (CANCEL ANYTIME YOU WANT)..dunno about you guys but thats a  no brainer to me.. 105$ to get 500$ to spend on your renuion.. gift cards hotels, rental cars. your flights and on and on.

here is an example of our hotel we are staying in with out group rate of 99$ a night... on the travel site I can get it for 51.48$ a night... and thats nothing compared to other saving you get.

so click the link.. fill out the info.. ignore all the buisness stuff if you want... save money and get 500$ its that freaking easy.

If others want to know about the buisness op let me know ill be happy to help you.

Supreme load of thanks to Teri Lawrence Fitzgerald who helped me personally when my name had mysteriously disappeared from the Reunion Attendee List and who did an incredible job of managing all of US attendees at the 2015 reunion in Kissimmee FL. It was a blast. Thanks, Teri!  One thing that I'd ask in the future is that we not focus on who GRADUATED in Gitmo, many of us attended Elementary School there but graduated back in the States. For that reason I did not get up with the group 1960-1969 to get a group photo, in thinking back I should have but the expectations were for those who graduated. I was so happy to find new friends who had experienced what I did in Gitmo, no one else could possibly understand this and I feel so fortunate to have found this group. Thanks to all my new friends! See you all at the next one! Linda Carlson

As someone who attended middle school (6-8) grades at WTS in the mid 80's, and who also attended the 2010 reunion, you are absolutely part of your graduating class, regardless if you participated in graduation on the base. I obviously did not, but I consider myself just as much a part of the class of 1991. :-)

Josh King (1997)

I'll take the blame on whether or not there was any confusion for the group photos since I was the one calling everybody up.  Everything we do from the Facebook groups to this website is meant for ANYBODY who was at WT Sampson Schools. That includes people who attended but did not graduate.  That includes those who only attended the Elementary School. It also includes any teacher or staff member.  This is the number one issue we get asked about and we made sure it was addressed when we started to get the reunion together.    

The last thing I ever want to do is make anybody feel left out.  Pretty soon we will create a survey to get people's reactions and make things better for next time.

Thank you to Terri , JJ and the rest of your team for all you did. I know it wasnt an easy task.

Suggestion---Although I live here in Orlando and love the fact that the reunion was so close to me,

Maybe the next reunion can be in Virginia Beach VA or Myrtle Beach SC..


Have a blessed week everyone!

James Nagy (1963)

* Who remembers Jim Nagy? I arrived @ Gitmo on 7/31/1956 by 'MATS' with my Mother, brother Bob & sister Lorri.  We had to sadley leave early 9/1958, because my Father a Navy Officer was transfered to Jacksonville, Fla. NAS then retired after 30 yrs. of service. During Baseball seasons, is when i really got excited, i  was a member of the Little League, the Eagles,1957, Manager Williingham,1958 season, a member of the Yankees, Manager Howell. I would have been in the Class of 1963, to view my Photo as i was standing proudly in my Eagles uniform during late Aug. 1957, go to my 1963 Class Profile. And any one who still retains those great memories of those long ago times, Please, E- Mail;  If any of you have PHOTOS FROM THE BASEBALL GAMES or Team the photo Celebrations, i do remember a base photographer did take team photos of each team as we were lined up on the field for the photo shoot. Each player should have been given a copy of the picture taken. I would enjoy an e mail scaned copy, since my photo has long been lost to time. Any questions from that time are certainly welcome. My MEMORY is good with the details of many events of those times. * Who remembers me & the REST of team Eagles & team Yanks?  My best to all, Jim Nagy, located in Boone Co. Ky. 7/10/16.

Found these post cards this morning. Can't tell when they were printed, but I would have bought them between 1977 and 1979.
