Welcome to the AOSHS Memory Book.
During and following the Cold War, Department of Defense school
teachers, administrators, students and their families have lived
around the world on the “cutting edge” of history in the making—post
World War II Europe, Japan and North Africa, the Berlin Wall going
up and coming down, the DMZ in Korea, the Six-day War, the Cuban
Missile Crisis, the Persian Gulf War, the Liberation of Panama, the
bombing of American embassies in Africa, and now the wars in
Afghanistan and Iraq, to mention only a few.
The memories of the participants in this unique situation are truly
priceless. The ones included here are very diverse. Memories from
those that helped develop the school system to those of a teenage
girl involved in living a “typical” life as a teenager.
