No. None of the racks were double at TI. All single; about 6 in a row; each with a locker at the head of the bed. The "head" was at the end of the hall. And talk about noisy! People coming in and out at all hours and slamming their lockers; getting up and going or getting back or just folks setting around talking and smoking. Glad I was upstairs where it was a little quieter. We had partision with one single bunk and locker. A total of 12 per floor with a "head' at the end of hall.

NEITHER DO I. THE BARRACKS AT KEYPORT WASHINGTON WERE SINGLES ALSO. I SHOULD HAVE REMEMBERED THAT.

The only difference between the racks in that transient barracks and boot camp barracks was in boot they were all doubles, I do not recall any doubles at TI.

That could very well be.

Hey Lindsey, you were there when I was there. I was in Personnel. Most likely checked you in and check you out.

I spent like two days in the transient barracks, absolutely no privacy. The racks were all lined up in rows. The guy next to me was an older guy, I am guessing a 2nd or 1st class. I never saw him in uniform, just in his skivvies and trust me that was no treat. He would drink so much and pass out, wet the bed, take the sheets off, take a shower and put clean skivvies on etc. After two nights of that I was ready to get out of there, on the 3rd day at muster the petty officer in charge told me they were going to have me work somewhere and I politely informed him that I was to catch a plane to Pearl. I was never so happy to get out of a place. This was Sep or Oct 77.

The only enjoyable time I had at TI was when 2 of us were sent to polish the floor in the waves mess hall, when we were done the waves said stay a while and gave us cake and ice cream, then after noon chow they asked for us back for the rest of the day. Went on liberty in Frisco and a marine took us to their club call the Marine Memorial which was great. Was hit on every place I went by my self.

I was in transit at TI two  times once in 1966 on my way to Subic Bay and when I returned In 1968 to get discharged. I got to see San Fran for two weeks each time.
