    Actually its controlled by the Florida National Guard. Its a training center for Army National Guard as well as ROTC and Reserve components.

    Just an FYI, Don't call it an Army base in the future. That place is made up of tents and barracks and it isn't a duty post. Just a temporary training facility.

    At any given time you might find 500-1000 people there.

    Asthma guy is fine as long he's not combat arms. Pogues don't run for their lives.

    Who? We slept in and on humvees or the ground. We made little diesel dirt fires to heat our coffee in our tin cups and the guys at the bottom of the social totem pole ate corned beef hash mres. That's not a camp. Not even by cowboy standards.

    He had hearing issues too. He was a ****ing mess but somehow graduated. He definitely had some technical MOS but I don't remember what it was.

I suggested that instead of running out of their countries, they should stay and fight for their rights, and improve their countries. Then to his regret he said but the government has all the guns, and there is nothing they can do. It was then I reminded him of the fact that at a former coffee, he said the government is the only group that should have guns. I simply said see, that is what you get if citizens dont have guns. I think it gave his something to ponder.

    As long as I didn't have that corned beef hash, no one would have anything bad happen to them in the night. Hit me up with that number 11, chicken and rice, and we all get along just fine.
