Welcome aboard DeepRecon. Are you the same poster over at MODF?
11-26-02, 09:17 AM
Well awrighty then! Thanks for the welcome. Yes, I'm in St. Louis - not hiding behind any bushes - and, yes Kegler, I am the same DeepRecon from MODF.
Camp Talega huh ? Home of the quonset huts full of snake eaters...you guys rock ! Down at Las Pulgas,we knew to stay outta your A.O. unless it was for a scheduled social call. Don't remember a time when Arty ever got a call to help you guys out.
Welcome Deep Recon...glad you could join us.
We are a bunch of Marines on a mission.
The mission is to help each other, listen and have a blast. Join us for drinks in the slop shute.

DeepRecon, I was with 2/7 at San Mateo from 75-77. Weren't you guys down the road at Camp Talega?
I was with HQ 1/11 at Las Pulgas from the end of '73 to '76...Mateo was the last stop going north to Talega...From San Mateo going south was San Onofre then Horno, Las Pulgas and a long stretch to Margarita before getting to Mainside.

Quanset huts were at MCRD San Diego in '58, so I felt right at home in Quanset Huts at the old Camp Kinser of Okinawa in '60.
A ritual at MCRD was a sand field day. Everything out of the hut. Everyone (78 of us) brought in a bucket of sand, followed by a bucket of water. Then scrub brushes to clean it up.
On Okinawa, to kill mosquitoes, the smoke fogger trucks would spray the area. Occassionally, a friendly driver could be pursuaded to back up to a hut and rev it up until the smoke poured out of the other end of the hut, preceeded by a quantity of ****ed off Marines who got a rude awakening.
I was sorry to see the quanset huts go.

Just up the road from San Mateo. San Mateo Rd. runs into Christianitos Rd (gas station at intersection), which goes out to the San Clemente Gate to the west and up Talega Canyon to the north to Camp Talega - 64 Area. We used the San Mateo pool a lot. Looke like several of us were in the area at about the same time. I didn't get there until Nov. 77.
They were certainly low maintenance...when I left Camp Pendleton for the last time in '87, Recon were the only Marines still living in them. The Devil Pups had a couple of them at Horno for a couple weeks during the summer. What few of those tin hootches that were left were mostly used for junk storage.

I was a bartender at Horno in 1976. The club was a quanset hut.....I love that place, it had "personality". Always had a laugh because they didn't see many women out there....much less WMs.

If the guys wanted to see women at any of the clubs, they should have gone to the San Onofre Beach Club...nice club, packed on the weekends and lots of Ladies...or so I've heard ;-)
Bartending at Horno must have been a real scream for you...most of the female population around there were trolling the barracks at night.

I've heard recon moved to Flores to the hotels. Such a shame I loved being out at Talega the Quanset huts and sqad bays helped the platoons adhere better, the new room thing kind of takes the glue outta the brotherhood, just my opinion.
