The same yukky hair that my two sons, one daughter and one grandchild have.
Be thankful they don't have the same truck. Those Gamma Goats were a nightmare.

I was visiting there about 14 years ago and they did not have gate guards at the time.

But Ft. Stuart used to be an open base, with state highways runnning throug the exercise areas. Neat to be going down the road and have to stop for various vehicles crossing the road. I understand that most, if not all, of these roads are now closed.

On most if not all military bases they closed the roads and you have to show ID to get on to base the day of 9-11-01. It was about time they did it to. I was tired of people selling stuff that just drove on base and went walking around where ever they could.

Not as far back, but this was Ft Bragg in the winter of 99 when I was there. The forecast at had called for snow and our unit was the only one that didn't pack up and head in. After the snow hit, we couldn't leave anyways because all the roads heading back into garrison were closed for two days. Talk about a real morale-builder...:rolleyes:

Forgot to mention that I actually had it relatively good. The FDC truck in the first photo was mine and with the kerosene heater it got fairly warm inside. Plus you could warm up the vienna wieners you brought along as pogy-bait. The bunnies on the gunline had it a little tougher in the tents.
