The quarters are not quite as spartan as I had imagined they would be. I occupy the bottom of a bunk, with no one atop and a desk and locker to myself. There are 18 bunks and only officers reside here, and so far no one is two-to-a-bunk. I’m sure the enlisted have less space. The bldg has wireless connection, which is a relief. You can see me sitting here blogging in the photo to the right.
The base itself is a bit spartan – like the army razed large rectangles of pine and erected huts in the spaces. A wire fence, and ever-present scrub pine, separate us from residences across the street. But the chow hall and a small PX are an easy walk, and today the weather was sunny and around 65-70 degrees. Let’s hope it holds out.
