I was on Treasure Island for Radarman Class A School from about September 1957 too March 1958. Transferred to USS Taussig DD746 from school. Went on Taussig as SN transferred off as RD2. Those were great days.

I was stationed there for ETA School in 1968. I was at the transit barracks after graduation and waiting for my orders to Naval Guided Missile School in Dam Neck VA. Those barracks were really bad as you had sailors coming in from the fleet, some mustering out, and some waiting for orders someplace where else. A real mixed environment. Watch Your Back! Liberty was great as we only had to muster and do some cleaning fora few hours M-F.

I was only at TI for a week [Oct 05-12, 1971], for separations; Was leaving the Nam with a 11-month early out. Was shocked and glad to see the beer machines!

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.

I CAN RELATE TO YOUR EXPERIENCE CHIEF.  WAS A VERY STRANGE EXPERIENCE AS I WAS WAITING FOR TRANSFER TO THE PI, REMEMBER THE BARRACKS AND HOW "HOLLOW," IT REPRESENTED WITH THE RACKS AND FEW PERSONNEL.. WHILE VISITING MY SON WHEN HE WAS STATIONED AT ALAMEDA COAST GUARD STATION, WE DROVE THRU TI AND I SHARED MY EXPERIENCE WITH HIM. MANY YEARS HAVE GONE BY. :)

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.
