Reminds me, I was Kilo Co.
Did you see that the barracks in 3rd Bn were all demolished recently? Sad to see them go, but they were pretty rough.
Barracks? We had Quonsen huts.
No, but as I recall, they weren't nearly as nice as the barracks at weapons battalion. I have an uncle that went through third Battalion in the mid-70s and they were the same barracks back then. I'd say it was probably be about time for them to be replaced. I wonder if the new barracks has tile floors instead of painted cement.
When I was in receiving, we were put in trailer barracks. My guess is that they were planning on the deconstruction at that time. Something happened with the plumbing, and the very same day we picked up our DI's we had to pack up the house and move everything into the old barracks. It was absolute chaos!
I never had the misfortune to have anything to do with one of those.
From what I saw, drop day is planned to be chaos, under ideal circumstances.

My father was in platoon 343 PI 1959. I have been searching for men he may have served with. His name was Robert C. Beck. I have pictures from his time at PI. Hope to make contact with someone who may remember him.
