I remember well the barracks and I do indeed thank you and your Engineers for the fine construction. I recall that, towards the end of my tour,(April69-April 70)- we were given lumber and such to convert the barracks over to cubicles. The barracks building parties were renown. What with the bizarre brews emenating from the coolers-each guy brought his own bottle of whatever and added it to the soup-and the endless supply of beer-I really don't know how we got the walls up-but it came out looking pretty good. Once finished, we had two man rooms. Felt almost like human beings after that. I do want to wish all my brothers a good Memorial Day, and I do offer profound thanks to those wonderful men who did NOT make it back to the world. May God bless you and hold you in the Palm of HIS hand! We will NEVER forget you! Steve
