Newb from CO

Hey everybody,

Just want to say hi. I've been a lurker here for about a year. I just purchased from the LRH gear shop, the BLM map (Wyoming) and ACI/ACD combo mount for my hunt coming up this fall.

Semper Fi,

Mast

Re: Newb from CO

Thanks for the replys,

Chas1, I was active duty from 89 to 92 and did some reserve time with an MP unit out of Dayton, OH. My active duty time, I was stationed outta 29 Palms, Ca. with 3/7 at that time. Once a Marine, always a Marine.

Semper Fi,

Mast

Mast, From what I remember...near 40 years ago, no one wanted to go to 29 Palms...Just nothing out there. Was it still that way when you were there?

Re: Newb from CO

From what I hear now, it's changed big time. It has grown from when I was there. They have new training areas that simulate A-stan and Iraq environments.

When my active duty obligation was finished in 92, there was the major cutbacks and quite a few bases were closed. El Toro MCAS was closed around then. I heard that those air units moved to the "Stumps". If you remember doing a CAX, 29 Palms was the place. lol I do remember getting the hell outta there on the weekends and going to San Diego, Palm Springs or Las Vegas.
