Ronald,

Have been there quite a few times as we go to San Diego frequently.Saw it being developed and toured the new housing(condo's.) They have kept the look. Glad they kept the Recruit looking good by the areas around it. Was aboard her during basic. Brings back memories as we drive through, picture the company on the parade grounds and so forth. Was an experience and visiting brings it all back.

FOR THE FIRST TIME IN 62 YEARS I SLEPT AT THE TRAINING CENTER AT THE HOTEL MARRIOT AT A AREA CALL" LIBERTY STATION" AT THE SOUTH WEST CORNER OF THE CENTER.  ABOUT 200 FEET FROM THE USS RECRUIT. I WAS NEVER ABOARD THE RECRUIT AS I WAS SHIPPED OUT EARLY DUE TO KOREAN WAR STARTING.  I THINK THIS IS  WHERE THE OLD FIREFIGHTING SCHOOL WAS.  ALONG THE CHANNEL WHERE WE HAD WHALE BOAT RACES.  THEY HAVE DONE A PRETTY GOOD JOB OF RETAINING THE LOOK.  THE GRINDERS WERE MADE INTO PARKS AND PARKING LOTS.  THE OLD BARRACKS AND MESS HALLS ARE GONE.  A LOT OF NEW CONDOS OR APARTMENTS A MEDICAL CLINIC SHOPS AND A COUPLE MARKETS.  THE GOLF COURSE IS STILL THERE.  BROUGHT BACK A LOT OF MEMORIES

Earl, 

Think you will be surprised. Many changes have taken place but it still brings back memories.

I was at NTC June to September of '67 in Company 4007, the Bluejacket Choir.  Going to San Diego in September, and looking forward to seeing what is left of the place.  I've been on Google, so I know there's not a lot.

Thanks Richard, I find it force of habit as after my one duty station I (a storekeeper) was assigned to HQCO 1st Marines as a quatermaster for deployment to map Da Nang for establishing camp for the 1st expeditionary forces 7th Marines. Jar Head talk became habit. No dis respect as my cousin was commanding officer of the 1st and never was one to complain about the Corp. However the deployment was not too much fun .

Will start of by saying was in CO040 DI MC Brackett. Frequent San Diego quite often and the ole base has really gone through some face lifts in the past years.I am currently Chaplin for the VASVW Veterans Association Sailors of the Vietnam War. Invite any of you all who served then to come on over and visit. Remember Pebble Field well. Spent a nightmare there one night because of someone giving the Chief a hard time answer. 

Well its nice to be a member and looking forward to some good chats and info

Revenered Tom
