Roosevelt Roads, Puerto Rico


The base has been closed for about 20 years now IIRR. I'm sure I found the Seabee base, or what's left of it.
Where we were housed in H-Co. (I was working CTR on that deployment) was right down from the beach and you could see that little island in the lower right corner almost lined up with where the old beach was.

CTR, MLO and another warehouse is at the upper left under that cross shaped building. The plowed field is where the barracks were and the galley was one of those big buildings where the plowing stops.

Something you'd probably never think of putting in a bugout bag

I've got them in my truck and use them around the farm, but never thought about them in a SHIF situation.


I need to look up the orange one and the blue one with the knots.
Also, cowboys used bigger bamndanas, I'm sure I can find some.

The predator patiently waits

I blew out the meniscus in both knees and have been off on Workers comp because the restrictions they put on me.


Thomas The Cat has decided that my lap belongs to him and waits until I put my feet up on the desk and pounces to lay on me at the first opportunity.
And another opportunist.

Just out of curiosity

--Is it sexist to refer to a local gun dealer that was a Marine as my "cute little Merchant of Death"?

Why are they afraid of a shock test?

I have to admit that when I think of Jerry Ford -I channel Chevy Chase back when SNL was funny.

But there has to be something seriously wrong when they want to blow-off a requirement for acceptance.
