    Me to. I dont think it changed much since '66. In fact I was down there 4 1/2 years ago for my kids graduation and my old Dorm was still up.

    Lockdown the entire training cycle now. In our day it was 6 weeks Basic "I did tech and Combat at LackLand" and then the party was on as long as you showed up in the AM for training. Remember the strip clubs? But now they can't even leave the base until the very end and they have to be in uniform and back on at night.
