    Great photo! I spent my tour here also. Jan 69-Feb-70. Was there when the ammo dump went up in April 69 due to a grass fire. We all spent the night in the foxholes along the perimeter. I sure do remember the many nights of sirens followed by the rockets. Also, the occasional shows in the elisted club. Drank a lot of beer in that club. My barracks was in the row along the top of the photo, 2nd one on the right side of the smaller building in the center (4th from the right at top). If I remember correctly, that smaller building in the center/top was the latrine/shower. When I arrived, I took a Sgt. Hernandezs job in MWHG-1, H&HS-1 and here's some people I served with: Gunny Brockway, Gary Allen, Greg Gonyou, Larry LaLonde, Bob Fuller, Gary Nester to name a few. Wow, 40 years ago. Sure like to see it now. Semper Fi, Bob Jeske, Cpl. USMC -Submitted by: Bob C. Jeske [rcjeske@wavecable.com] 2009-09-03

    Hello again I just posted and reread the story andAnd read the post by MSGT Bill McCORMACK. Where he said thet the SSGT was sleeping in the storage building with SGT Gary Fain is incorect. He was in his room in the back of the CG'S MESSHAUL. There were only about 4 feet between his wall and the wall of the storage building. I can't remember his name but he was the ncoic of the messhall and he was from North Carolina. I was the bartender at the mess hall and Gary Fain was my closest friend. If there are any marines that were serving in the CG'S MESS HALL between DEC 67 andSept 69 please email me or post on this sight. I have lost contact with everyone. THANKS. CPL TERRY RANDALL-txholdem@alltel.net Please post or email me at above address. -Submitted by: TERRY RANDALL [txholdem@alltel.net] 2006-08-24
