MCRD San Diego 1967 - Leathernecks Member's Gallery
Re: MCRD San Diego 1967 I was in Communications and Electronics BN going through tech and comm center school starting in September 1967 through April 1968. This picture only shows the main parade deck and classic buildings with the quansote huts. I had to live in a GP large tent due to the Vietnam rush which put a lot of Marines going through C&E BN at the time. For those that were there, It was the winter that brought snow to San Diego. Woke up freezing and found an inch of snow on the ground. It was all melted by 0900 or so. After a bit I was moved to a quansote hut with heat. Later I lived in barracks about 2/3rds the way up on the left of picture. Comm Center school was in a building outside of the quad on the far left hand corner. Those were great days.
Re: MCRD San Diego 1967 I went thru recruit training MCRD San Diego Oct.1963 - Dec 1963 platoon 375 looking at the picture with the quanset huts and grinder brings back many fond memories it takes a Marine to understand a Marine. God bless all my fellow Marine brothers. Semper Fi.
Re: MCRD San Diego 1967 I went thru recruit training MCRD August 1967. quanset huts also brought back memory's watching the civilian jet leave San Diego while doing PT. knowing we were serving our country and making it possible for those planes to fly. In 1990's my son went thru recruit training at MCRD all but two quanset huts were gone. Two closet to the south end of property by climbing tower. Stored gear in them. They had double decker barracks along the parade ground.
