Lots of memories

A lot of memories at Fort Monroe. My mother, Mildred Cahoon (Millie), retired from Civil Service there having worked many years in the A.G. Printing Plant building adjacent to the marina. Growing up, she was able to take my sister and me to the outdoor pool at the Chamberlin. I played many pick-up basketball games at the Y.M.C.A., played tennis and soccer at the Fort, went to the beach, toured the Casemate Museum and the Coast Artillery emplacements, watched July 4th fireworks, attended an Army National Guard function at the Officer’s Club, and attended a wedding reception at the Chamberlin. My father taught me to swim in the Chamberlin’s indoor pool. Great memories, all.
