RTC Great Lakes, summer of 1975, Co. 119. Had some HT as a Co. Commander and some doper-looking seaman apprentice as his hey-boy. It was so HOT the day we graduated, the shoe polish melted off our shoes and ran onto the welts (top, edges of the soles that stick out). Remember melting the shoe polish with a lighter to get more polish and a better shine... and waxing the GD barracks floor with shoe polish?

Damn, it sucked!

Orlando, 1978.

You know the whole place is gone now?

Maybe a couple of very derelict buildings still there (base hospital, for one), but most of it torn down & replaced with some kind of yuppie mixed development. Freaky...
