Any alums out there? I was there 01-64 for almost a year as a 810 draftsman.

It's too late for me, save yourself.

    I don't think its around anymore. I believe they Army turned it over to NJ and they are using it as a economic development area like a lot of the old USAF Bases.

    Right Sam06. Same with my second assignment - Ft. Monroe, VA. I may go back to visit both. It's been 55+ years.

    Welcome to the forum connile. This is a great place for info concerning firearms and much else. Sometimes it get a little rough so you need thick skin. I've been here a long time and look forward to the next day's posts. As I said, I sure would go back to visit NJ & VA but with the price of gas I would need to sell my truck!
