Just discovered this site. Will add comments after becoming familiar with what is here. Thanks
Enjoyed the site. I was the Assistant Editor, Southern Command News, late November 1971-March 1976 (Ft Clayton, then part of SCN Radio & TV)
Wife, Maureen worked in circulation department of the Canal Zone Library-Museum (Civil Affairs Bureau, CZ Government) early 1973-March 1976. (Now Chief of the Serial Record Division, Library of Congress. Incidentally, the Library of Congress is the present site of where the "Panama Collection" from the Canal Zone Library is maintained)
We have nothing but wonderful memories of our stint in the Canal Zone.
Great site ! My wife is a CZ brat ! She was born in the Navy hospital in 1962, the family left in 1968. Her name is Loren Edwards, her father retired with 20 years as the CZ Fire dept. Chief, his name was Ralph Edwards. Any one that may remember them Please get a hold of us.
Through your web site, I can relive growing up in the community of LaBoca-some of the best years of my life.
Great site! My wife and I lived in Panama City while I was an MP at Quarry Heights from March 1970 to Sept. 1971. Thanks for the great memories!!
Great site! Wish you had more on the sixties. I was an Army brat there during 62-66. The pictures you have bring back good memories.
Your site is fascinating. I was in the MPs at Fort Clayton from 1955 thru 1957. I married a girl who had lived most of her life in the Canal Zone. We were married in the Curundu Chapel in 1956. Her name was Margaret Zent. Her father, Llewellyn Zent was a member of the Masons in the Canal Zone. Margaret graduated from BHS in 1955. We both enjoy your site very much, especially the pictures. Thanks and keep up the good work.
