A word on living accomodations at Camp McCrady, Fort Jackson, SC


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.

Accommodation is a word large enough to accommodate two "c's" and two "m's."

Ronny the room hasnt changed at all but we have 32 officers now in the space and so 12 are on top racks. I took at extra day to arrive at McCrady knowing this would mean I'd end up with an upper bunk. The enlisted berthng is much nicer as rehabilitation started with them (rightfully so).
