Where did I grow up? 1987- May 20, 1989

No, the question is where…not when. When is to be determined 🙂 I decided to play on Google Maps to see what I could come up with. I’m going to be posting these out of order, but I will include the years 🙂
Torrejon AFB, Spain – This was not easy as google didn’t have a record of it, no matter how I typed it into the search box. However, I did find the long/lat of the runway and was able to figure it out from there. Here is the Google Map Link
Click the image below to view a map marked with the following areas of intrest:

1) This was where our little house was. The parking lot behind it was the Hospital.
2) This is where the BX, Commisary, movie theatre and ice cream parlor are/were.
3) This is the pool we spent all summer at. Bowling Alley is also here. Spent a lot of quarters there.
4) This is the elementary school.
5) Can’t really see it, but this is the high school.
6) This is where I got into my first fight. I kicked the guys butt. He picked the fight.
7) This is the TLQ (Temp. Living Quarters…basically a hotel) and the Officer’s Club (O-Club).
I think the area between 1 & 4 is my dad’s office area. (without the orange roof, next block).

    Actually, my office was in the “T” shaped building between “4” and “1.” The one that has the “U” shaped driveway in front was 16th Air Force Headquarters

    Yah, thats the area I was referring to. Just couldn’t figure out which one it was.
