October of 63 I was in 5th grade! The 1st barracks I was in when I got there in 72 was at least a vintage Korean War era barracks that was in the vicinity of the school building. Once we were assigned to a company we were moved to one of the "H" shaped barracks that were made of of 4 man cubicles. The hospital was painted pink - they built a new hospital back in the 80s and Corps School is now on an Army base in Texas. I can see the need for consolidation to controll spending, but, for people like us it is lost memories. Just like RTC is gone, everyone thought that RTC San Diego would survive, instead they kept G Lakes - because it is in the middle of the country.
