Billy, Your website is a nostalgic reminder of a wonderful time in my life. I'd go back in a heartbeat if some other people I know were going back. I am now in business for myself as an independent representative for International Teamworks, Inc. my website is www.itilink.com/alicebm.iti. I invite everyone to check it out. Begin by clicking on the video tape 2002 at the top of the page then click on the sidebar at the left of the page. I would love to hear from any Zonian that would like to reminisce with me. I am a graduate of CHS class of 1948.
I was born at Gorgas Hospital in 1942. My father is a retired career Army officer (he's now 87). I am so excited to find your site..I thought all was lost. I have pics and so does the rest of my family. Maybe we could share. My Dad had 3 tours in Panama. One at Ft. Davis, and 2 at Ft. Clayton. After I married, in 1967, we went to Panama, my husband was a civilian and we lived in Panama City-a high-rise across from the home of La Guardia Nacional commander at the time. I do have stories of all times there and would love to talk about them with someone.
I loved Panama, I was assigned down there in the military for years, did a lot of humanitarian work all over the country, married a beautiful Panamanian woman and now have a retirement home in David were I plan to live out the rest of my time. I will continue to help out with civic action programs when I can. Hope to meet others like me with similar interests, Thanks GM
me parece muy buena su pagina para nosotros los panameņos. Usted conoce mucho de historia del canal lo felicito quisiera saber si esa colleccion que aparece en las fotos como la botella o el brazalete se puede visitar en algun museo
I was a surveyor for IAGS in 1954-1957, 551st Engrs (Topo). Mapped Costa Rica to Columbia, saw more of Panama & the Zone than most of the CZ brats, we have a local chapter, I am the Pres. of it. Leo Langland
As a matter of history the two first Panamanian policemen assigned to Red Tank were Officers Felton Gill and Ephraim Innis both lived and worked in Red Tank prior to its closing.
I LOVE YOUR WEB SITE "CZIMAGES". Every Sunday morning I check it out -- Sometimes you have been delayed but believe me, I always read it and enjoy. Todays pictures brought back a lot of good memories, but aren't those military hats the "PITS"? The two civilians with their straw hats in the first picture reminded me of my Dad (who was almost bald) who protected his head from the sun and sunburn while out in the sun working around the Canal or when involved with sports. Keep up the good work. Will see you at the reunion, God willing.
Thanks for your site. I was born at the Ft. Clayton Army General Hospital in 1947. I have never had the opportunity to return until now. Thanks, WLJ
I lived at Fort Clayton from 1946-1949 when my Dad was stationed there. The photos brought back so many wonderful memories. Thank you for developing this website. I would love to hear from others who were kids there during those years. I went to 1st through 3rd grades while we were there and my little brother was born at the hospital there.
Love the site. It brings back such memories. I'll be at the reunion and look forward to seeing you and others.
Out standing Web site!!!!!!! Sure brings back ole memories. I graduated from BHS in 1956 and went to one year CZJC. Dad was stationed in the Zone two tours. USAF, Howard Field, Albrook and Quarry Heights. 1948-1951 and 1953-1957.
