    Ft Dix, June 1968, entry date 14, June 68. E-4-3. I was 17 in Jan 68. Enlisted, went to WVMC school immediately after basic, and waited alone in a barracks 6 weeks after my whole class went to Okinawa, not knowing anything about my future! Turned out, I was assigned to Iran, to a Topographic unit. Evidently, I was being investigated for a clearance. Very scary 6 weeks. lots of effing KP!! In the big deuce mess hall. Lots of hiding out.

    I was took basic at Ft Campbell from Dec '66 - Feb '67. Then went to Ft. Eustis. I'm trying to find any pictures of Ft. Campbell, especially the barracks from that time frame. If you have any pictures from when you were there, I would love to see them. I've included a copy of the "Welcoming Brochure" that they handed out. Roger G.
