I was in Co. 17, starting 11/4/68. Construction workers were still there. Saw the 1st Co. graduate.
I remember that a reserve co. got to march w/ us at graduation after they were only there 2 weeks.

Ah Yes, My adventure started 11March '69 Company #0083 . I remember it well; I was in the 3rd floor barracks overlooking the chow hall on the end of the building and the famous "Grinder" was to the side of the building. I can remember watching those blanket party boys running around the grinder holding those old Springfields over thier heads. Those ummy green,greasy eggs they served for morning chow.
