I did not attend Ankara High School, but some of my friends did - Bruce Hall and possibly Wallace Hall.
My father worked for the Tumpane company, and his office was located on a military base in Istanbul.

I remember going to the Officer's Club on base, having turkey sandwiches and Shirley Temples, and dancing the Bunny Hop and the Hokey Pokey!

I attended the English High School For Girls (EHSG) in 1959, and later a French Embassy school in Ankara in the mid 1960s.
My family lived in Turkey for 10 years.

If anyone has any information on the Tumpane company or either of the schools that I mentioned, it would be much appreciated.

I would like to connect with others who lived in Turkey in this time frame and reminisce about those wonderful days.

(If anyone knew Bruce Hall, a Debbie Olsen or a Cathy Garvin, please let me know).

Greetings, fellow Trojans. I have an unusual request. Due to a traumatic brain injury (or two) my long term memory has been severely affected. I remember faces and places, but not names or dates.

I would like to ask that if any of you remember me, to please email me. Let me know how we knew each other, what kind of things we did, and what trouble we did/didn't get into. I know I lived on Serefli Sokak in Mebusevleri between 1960 and 1965 while I was in elementary school, then I came back in 1967/69 and I lived in the dorm. I have very few memories of dorm life or school and would love to know what the heck I did back then :). I hope I hear from you. Gule gule for now.

Eleanor Jean Mooney was contracted by the DOD as an administrator for the Ankara dormitories in 1966. She was formally the Assistant Dean of Women at the University of Oklahoma. I worked for her for 3 years while completing my undergraduate degree at OU. Sometime later, we lost track of one another.

If anyone has current information about her, I would appreciate any details and would like to be put in contact with her.

I was in Ankara 1954-1956. I was in middle school, grades 5, 6, 7 and 8. My father was in the Army and served with the embassy as the Assistant Military Attaché.

I am looking for a friend by the name of Johnny Mueller (not sure of the spelling of the last name). I recall that he lived with his parents in an apartment just across the street from the embassy.

URGENT REQUEST:

One of our own Ankara High School alumni is in dire straights right now and in need of our help.

Debbie (Waltman) Rickman, '69, has been unable to work the past six months due to medical reasons. She worked at Jack in the Box for 17 years, so she does not have any savings, and she lives alone. She has been going through government red tape trying to get disability but has received nothing to date. She has been unable to pay her mortgage payments on her mobile home and her phone service has been cut off. I sent her money a few times to help her out and to get her utilities up to date so they wouldn't be cut off, but I can't continue due to my own economic situation (my hours have just been cut at my work).

If you can spare a few bucks to help one of our own, I would be so grateful as I am worried about her welfare. She was my best friend when we lived on Site 23 and is a good person at heart. These days it seems like its the community we can count on to help each other, not the government. So, if you can send even a small amount, every little bit will help! Or, if you can donate your legal services somehow to help her get her disability, that would be wonderful as well. She lives outside of Houston.

Connections: Please contact Jill Boldway if you are able to help Debbie.

Dear Friends: How strange and beautiful it is to reach into the past and touch it once again. Living in the dorms was a great memory, as well as a bus trip to Cappadocia, a bus trip through Bolu on the way back to Karamursel,a weekend trip to Konya, and of course, trips to Istanbul.
I remember my friend Wendy Synder and Amparo Gonzales. I visited Ankara years later and while so many things had changed, many had not.I left Turkey to go to Frankfurt Germany where I graduated. Then onto the University of Texas in Austin to college.
Peace and fond memories to all,

My father was a diplomat from Taiwan, and it was my first overseas experience ever.. the time that I spent in Ankara was amazing, although I had to overcome alot of things, including learning English..looking back on the old days in the 90s, it is very incredible to think about it now.. I was just a 12 years-old child who had no idea what was coming..what I have become now owe many thanks and no-thanks to this constant moving around the world..but no regret and I appreciate the cultural differences.. I am also looking for Christina Fuchs-Arthur, she taught me French and changed my views on many things..and Mr. Bob Marble was such a good principal..he rocked, and he is by far the best principal I've met since.. also hello for those who are out there..

Hi folks. Went to Balgat in August. Of course many know how small the American corner is, but it is still suprising to see it, especially since I was 16 last time I was there. New GC Marshall School principle was too busy to let alumni in the building or library. She had "60 kids coming in of all grades". I remember Dr. Elstran. He would have had this lady for breakfast. Gym is still there intact. Remember ASTL basketball? The High School is now the AAFES BX. The old track is getting rdone and the football field is...for Soccer. Trojans don't even have a football team anymore. Most student are international community. Bleachers are still there, and Mrs. Brown's old music room is still the music room. Oh well, I have had enough of the Glory Days. Time to move on. Ankara by the way is HUGE and beautiful.

Greetings to all. Sorry that I have been unable to attend the past two reunions. It was great to reconnect with friends. I have a trip with my husband in San Antonio in late January 2008 and I was wondering who is close by - if I get totally bored with corporate world. Also, I would love to try and locate Marsha Daniels (1968), she moved back to San Angelo. Lost her and she was one of my two roomates. Great web-site.

Connections: Go to our Registry Search Function and type San Antonio in the Location box. You will find 28 alumni who live in the San Antonio area. Then send them an email and start planning your mini reunion.

I'm afraid we do not have any contact information for Marsha Daniels 68.

Where are my 1980 classmates? I have stopped in to this website numerous times in the past five years and have been unable to connect with you. Why, there were only sixteen or seventeen of us! Specifically, Hans R., Wally R., Latanya J., Beth A., Roushon,.... I could go on. Someday I wish to hold a small reunion. I'm only have way through my life, but Father Time is ticking. Any members of the 1979-1981 classe, feel free to connect at the above e-mail address. Best wishes to all.

I lived in Ankara form 62-67, attended the French Embassy School for a couple years and then The ele school there. I ended up in SHAPE, Belgium before going back to Izmir, Turkey where I graduated in 1977 and lived until May'79. I now live in Atlanta after continuing on our travels as a military wife. Don't remember too many people from Ankara, but it is fun going back all those years!

My dad, Bob Marble, was the principal of George C. Marshall from 1992-1996, and I went there for my kindergarten and 1st grade years. Part of me will always remain in the halls of that school.

Thanks, Anita, for the outstanding job on your trip to Turkey and sharing it with all of us. My husband and I and 7 others toured almost all the places you did last year. You took some great pix from spots we didn't get or that didn't turn out well and I printed many of them. You made me feel I was on the tour again, but with your group.

I was the "volunteer" at the ceramic place in Cappadocia and was laughing too hard to be embarrassed about the shape that seems to naturally form in the clay when on has no experience. We also bought a gorgeous plate and got a picture of us with the plate and the artist. He was leaving the next day for an exhibition in Chicago and is rated one Turkey's best ceramic artists.

I'd make the trip again in a heartbeat

Has anyone sailed on a Gulet from Bodrum down into the southwestern part of the Aegean?

Since finding this site several years ago, I have tried to connect with classmates of 1979 - 1981, but many have yet to sign on. I especially want to reach my fellow graduates of 1980 in hopes that we could all attend a reunion. There are only about 16 of us! It must be possible! (P.S. Spent a total of about 10 of my youth years in Turkey.) Hans Ringenbach? Wally Robertson? Latanya Jackson? Maria Roach? Caroline H.? Beth and Ariana Albright? Roushon (sp)? Peter Gould? and others.

Thank you all so much for putting the time and energy into the website, organizing the reunions and giving us all a chance at connecting. While I was unable to make it to the 2005 reunion I check into this site as a way to touch base with one of the most wonderful times in my life, my senior year at George C. Marshall High. I graduated in 1972 and to this day my experiences from that time impact me daily. I am hopeful I will make it to the next reunion.

I attained school at site 22 (if you were a in townie)or most commomly known as marshall high school in 1964,65,66 as a 6th,7th, and 8th grader.It's a great pleasure to see the hard work and success that has gone into this site.The years we spent in Turkey are very special to me and after seeing this site, I now realize that it was as much the company of fellow coalition Miltary Brats that made that tour so great. I too have vivid memories of Ankara, living cross the street from the Russian Embassy, to the teen club,shooting pool with the local Turks,black snow, the big Reds,& PX next to the rail station.Hearing Bob Dylan "Like a rolling stone",with my shop made skateboard under my arm. Hope to hear from some class mates, 1964 - 1966 6th,7th,8th graders. PS: Recently had someone ask me to put they puzzle ring back together,still have the juice, put it together in less than a minute.

Dear Classmates and others who lived in Ankara, Turkey between 1964 to 1966 - One of our classmates, Jody Barlerin Mayer is critically ill. She was diagnosed and has been treated for breast cancer over the past year and a half. The cancer has now metastasized to her brain, lungs, liver, spleen and who-knows-where-else. I visit her frequently and know that she would enjoy hearing from others she knew in Turkey. If anyone would like to write, send photographs, make origami storks, or otherwise be in touch with her can contact me about how to reach her. Linda Crocker Simmons.

(Unfortunately, Jody lost her battle with breast cancer on October 20, 2005. You can find more information on our In Memoriam page.)

I attended school in Incirlik but my late wife, Belinda Frost, graduated from Ankara in 1969. I attended the 2005 reunion to provide some closure for her friends. I know I didn't get to see all of you but rest assured that you were on my mind. I want to thank those that encouraged me to attend. It was difficult at times but I'm glad I came. Thanks to Gary Kunselman for the time to talk about Belinda and to Tim Wurtz and the committee for putting on another great reunion.

Hi! I traveled to Turkey with my USAF family on the USNS Geiger in Oct. 1959, a wonderful 19-day experience (not counting the seasickness and fact that the captain of the ship died of a coronary enroute and was buried at sea). Attending the Ankara American school from 1959-'62 created great friendships that I'd love to reestablish, and living as a BRAT on the Turkish "economy" was an educational and social experience I'd never trade for any amount of money! When my husband and I traveled to Istanbul from his USArmy station in Landstuhl, (then West) Germany many years later, the Turks there were impressed when I still tried to speak my microscopic amount of "kitchen Turkish." Hey, anyone out there--Hope Chalfant, John Willis, John Baleski, Donna Blatt, Kathleen Crowley, others? I'd love to hear from any and all of you!

I will be thinking of you all, and certainly with you in spirit- have a dance for me! Lots of love, Ginny

Thanks for all your hard work. Enjoyed reading about you Anita. What an interesting life. To those who have not attended a reunion before, you need to sign up for Dallas 2005. My first was Dallas 2000. It was a blast. It was like stepping back in time. It was unbelievable being with friends from 30 years back. I'm glad Tim Wurtz started the first web site years ago. I have enjoyed keeping in touch with several from the reunion as well as finding new ones. To Debbie Philips & Donna Ray congrats on your new marriages, but I lost your email addresses after that. Hope to hear from you and others. Jackie

Attended 3rd through 7th grade. Left Ankara in 1966. I have many, many fond memories of my school days there. Even the Turkish calvary swooping down the hill (full gallop) and across the elementary school grounds. I was totally in awe of the high school. So BIG...so many tall kids pushing me along the corridors.

I was wondering if there is a special place for faculity? I have been attempting to locate a Mr. Steinburg who taught music in 61/62. I'm not even sure if he is still with us. He may have left Ankara and transferred to another school. I would like to hear from anyone who may have some information on him. Otherwise, great site, see you in Dallas this summer!

I love the site, I was happy to see pictures of the school. It would be nice to have some year book photos of each class even if its only one or two per class but also it would be great to have a place for people to put up their own works. Thanks to this site, I can get in touch with a few but not all class mates. good job. I love the recent photos of the high school. Are there any of the base its self, Baskin Robins, Bookstore, Pool, Teen Center, they were nice memories too. -Carolina (Attended 1990-1992

I am enjoying this site very much - it seems to address most if not all of what I'm looking for. Lots of current information and links to good newsgroups, photos, info about Turkey, finding things online for purchase that you didn't get while you were there, and the reunions (seems to include all of them - very cool), and nicely written. Thanks so much Jill - I know you hear all the time about "all your hard work" but it continues to be true and well-deserved! P.S. for others visiting the guestbook, report broken links including what page they're coming from and going to, to the webmistress using the "Contact the Webmistress" or "Contact Us" links elsewhere, probably on the front page of the site, so they can be repaired.

How cool! I found a link showing how to get my puzzle ring back together that has been apart all of these years. We probably ought to list any and all great Turkish restaurants that we find. Thanks to a Turkish friend I had heard about the Istanbul Cafe (on Lover's Lane no less) which many have us have been to while at the reunion. Just went back there again about 3 weeks and enjoyed a fantastic dinner + Kavakladere Wine.
