Who here remembers the old Vietnam-era camo nets that had burlap in them? When it rained, those things sucked up water and then they weighed about 100 pounds per square foot!
Yep, I do. My first duty station was a Marine Artillery Battalion (1/12)

I lived under those nets for the better part of two years.

Indeed it is.

As for the camo net, we turned it all in years ago because the Army was narrow minded enough to think that because we weren't using it in the Middle East, we would never need it elsewhere. In the last year or so, the Army has been getting back to a conventional war footing. Word on the street is that we'll be getting it back in time to use at next year's AT.

That's how I began my career. When you have to remove a transmission from a HEMTT though, a hooch ain't gonna cut it.

I usually have nothing in common with Army guys and their locations, but oddly, I spent 3 months at Camp Blanding before Desert Shield/Desert Storm. We had a whole bunch of different training from tactical boat maneuvers to SWAT.

I liked Camp Blanding. I'm sure it's changed a bit in the last 27 years.

Stole a jeep, which promptly died out in the toolies. Medic sat on a pygmy rattler. Good times.

You might be surprised. If you had aerial photographs from the last time you were there and from today, they would be nearly identical. The only real additions to the post since the 40's have been in the middle of the cantonment area. Air Assault obstacle course, SF compound, a gym, and a new RTI building. CSMS got a new complex on Leesburg road about ten years ago. Some of the barracks have AC units now but they are the original buildings. A MOUT city was built south of the impact area but it rarely gets used. The PX has had its facade redone a few times and the enlisted club was redone when it became an all ranks club. That's really about it though.

Army chow

"Any one who says Army chow is mighty fine" ...

never ate at on the Hill at Field Station Berlin in the mid 70's. Seen the Turkish cooks run out of frozen hamburgers for the short order line. So they pulled a box of mystery meat out of the freezer and threw them on the grill. Got our food and found out that they were pork chops, burnt on the outside, still frozen in the middle. Heard an IG pulled a surprise visit late 76 and fired the entire cook staff. Said he ate at better field kitchens that what was being served there.

Lost a lot of weight while stationed on the hill that year.

I'm pretty sure their descendants got the contract to run the mess hall in Mosul in '08....

First time I ever had mermited chow was in basic. Middle of the night and the guy in front of me asked "What's that?"

WHOCK! The cook beaned him with the ladle and was swingin' for the fence.

Then he looked an me and when "What'll you have?"

"I'll have some of that please."

First time I ever saw a first sergeant laugh.

Thanks from GARRARD
