    I drove up 371 for years to Hackensack. Unfortunately, I no longer have the cabin but the water tower still brings me a smile.

    JeffMunn/AKBeemer,

    Another 8ID vet. 1980-83 Plt Ldr in 3-8 Cav then as an aide in Wiesbaden,
    Also in 2AD same time as JeffMunn 3/66 AR. From there I went to ROTC land for three years branch transferred to Transportation then back to Germany. My best assignment was after that in Vicenza, Italy. Excellent riding. Retired early in 96 thamks to the drawdown. Work now as a contractor at Ft Irwin, which aside from deciding what to wear in the morning, is just like the Army.

    Man I hated Keesler. I went by there last October. I don't believe it has changed much since '72-73.

    Don't know if you've been here lately, but a lot has changed as far as training goes. I don't know what quality of life here was in 91-93 but in 86 when I came for a rotation it was pretty bleak. Now it is pretty nice, we even have a Starbucks on post (in the old Burger King)

    I was there for training with a tank battalion in 81....before it all built up. Back then, the only grass was the front lawn of the Officers Club. Each night, huge jackrabbits would congregate on the lawn. As you walked to and from the club, they would make room for you to pass, then close back in behind you after you had passed. I remember thoughts of Alfred Hitchcock........especially after a few brews!

    I loved the desert, though.......beautiful, and great training.

    USMC '66-'69 including an all expenses paid trip to Southeast Asia, mostly around the Da Nang area. Managed to get back without a scratch. Got home, got out, got a Norton P-11 and then got bucked off the thing and broke an arm and a leg.
    Safer in the Marines I guess. Semper Fi.

    Navy vet.

    I spent four years in the Navy, May of '69 thru May of '73. I was a hospital corpman, finishing up as a HM2 out of Cherry Point N.C. at the Naval Hospital there. I spent one year with the USMC as a field med. tech. I finally framed my Nixon signed honorable discharge certificate thanking me for service rendered "in a difficult time for our nation". . All seems like a long time ago.

    I was there in '74. It was a rough 12 or 13 weeks. Everybody yelled at me alot and called me bad names. Has anybody been back? Would love to see it today.

    I was in the Canadian Forces from '68-'78. I was an Army guy, but also volunteered (can you believe it?) for a two-year tour at sea aboard a helo destroyer. Yes, the Navy is different. I also had a six-month deployment to the middle east (Sinai desert) in 1977. I then spent another 28 years as a Defence department civilian at HQ in Ottawa. I've been retired three years now after my 38 year defence gig.
