This web site is amazing. I just moved to New York from Lakenheath about a month ago. I'm 15 and I was a freshman at Lakenheath high school.
I'm American but America is like a foreign land. I miss England so much. My father was stationed there for 10 years so unlike many of you I haven't had much experience with moving. I lived in Italy (Aviano AFB) when I was 5 and have traveled all over Europe, but Lakenheath is my home (my father retired).
I can connect with a lot of messages on here. It is so interesting to see and hear about how LHS was in the sixties. I really liked listening to the radio station clip you guys have on here. I'm not used to so many things here in the us. I now understand what my friends meant about Walmart and Dairy Queen, but i'd rather have Woolworths and Fish and Chips. I miss so many things about England. Added on tax, my friends, teachers, admin and of course the military.
It is so strange not seeing clean-cut slim men and woman wearing their uniforms. Our parents defended our country but many of us feel familiar with everywhere else but our country. Still, I hold my head high and am proud to be known as a Military Brat.
Take care and God bless sincerely, Danielle Schneider
