Fond Memories of One of Many Military Childhood Homes
We lived at 5 Moat Walk from 1956-58 when I was a 6-8 year old. Behind our 2 story attached apartment were the rear areas of the firehouse and the base hospital. Sometimes I used to run an elevator in the hospital for people (totally unnecessarily of course). With neighbor children, we broke a few hospital windows playing ball on their large rear lawn area. Went to Brownie meetings in a casement; and a swimming pool was inside the moat area I think too. Attended St. Mary Star-of-the-Sea Church, and it’s related elementary school on the mainland. Great memories living there. Hope to visit someday.
