My father got stationed there with us in 1964-1966. The school had quancet huts, outdated books, but we had a nice officrs club, for adults only, a theater that showed all the updated shows for 15cents a show, a nice pool for everyone next to the theater, bowling alley, gym and exchange snack bar, and exchange store all in the same area and a library next to the Church. this was way back then and Iam looking for some friends who were stationed there the same time we were there. One worked in Ammo name Dwane or Duane Burr, and the other worked on planes his name is Ken VanderWall. We lost contact in transfers after 1966, Ken went to a base in Illonios I do believe and Duane I am not sure where he went. They would be in their 60's by now.
Can anyone help me find them or tell me how or where to go to contact them.
Thank YOu,.
Turkey is more modern today then in the 60's but all you had to do was respect the people and their culture and we would get along just fine.

Kent---I can't believe you ate Ice Cream off base??!! They told us back in 1973 not to eat any ice cream or consume any dairy products off base??? Guess I missed out on sometime good while I was there!!!!

Right! I heard there were no cows off base so where does the milk come from?

Kent did explain they used goats milk for the ice cream. But still, the Turk's don't process milk products like we do here in the USA. I think this is the reason we were told not to eat or consume any dairy products off base.

RE: Incirlik AB

Is there an Armory on-base where DoD civilians can store and practice with their privately owned firearms?

I was stationed at Incirlik from Feb 1979 till May 1980 and worked as the NCOIC of Administration for the Transportation Section. I remember TSgt and Major Brown and also CMSGT Reginald Schwarthoff. I also worked with the Turkish Nationals in Customs Liason and remember Mr. Humzabay. I helped evacuate women and children during the overthrow of the Shaw of Iran. I enjoyed my stay in Turkey and purchased a lot of brass, copper, and some onyx. The "Adana Kobabs" and Turkish Rocky" were Great! I knew George Kovas who worked in Intel.

I was stationed at Incirlik CDI from April 2, 1979 thur Dec, 1981 and it was hard at first as the base was still a Common Defense Installation. I was there when the Iran Hostage situtation happened and we went on full scale alert. That was scary. Most of the time I stayed on base. I spent a lot of time at the Ceramic shop, the bowling alley, movie theater and the gym. I also rode my bike around a lot.
Good luck to any one that goes there now. I wish I could do it all over again, it was exciting and worth it.

Incirlik AB, Turkey TMO 1997-1999 It was a real growth experience for me. Thoroughly enjoyed the experiences, even the very long contract negotiations between the TCNs and CP (wow what a strike). I made SSG and narrowly escaped a looming marriage to a psychotic man. Life in Turkey was magic for us because the Turkish Nanny was so much cheaper than full time DOD daycare. We paid of bills and left the assignment with money in the bank. Only negative-- small base with a large rumor mill. Life in the fish bowl in full effect. Prepare for every moved to be overly scrutinized by snarky, bored housewives. Those legends the ladies conjured up about the single moms were usually the product of silly women with giant imaginations. Luckily, our little single mom support group prevailed and we all of us mostly succeeded in making rank and finding decent partners. I loved seeing parts of Greece and the Revelations Seven Churches tour. What a wonderful experience over all!!!

I work in Redwood, and we have no such a bargain policy, you are not telling the truth. If you still here at Incirlik, please stop by and prove it. You are sharing the same thinkings af the person that has posted bad words about the Turkey.
Wow, seriously? Everyone is talking about bargaining at Redwoods and you obviously are easily offended. If your furniture isn't up to par it travels by word of mouth on base just as it would online. Sitting here calling people liars constantly isn't making you or your place of business look better. It's demeaning to those who have and do spend THEIR money at your business. Have respect and be grateful.

I was a dependent - not an enlisted and i knew Julie Putigiani at the Education Center. Julie actually got to attend classes while I got my GED - i did not get permission to attend HS in Ankara. I remember that you had two brothers - one of whom was named Roger. Searching for you and know your last name changed to Lasher. Email me: [email protected]
