I was at MCAGCC 29 Palms during the summer of '97. Comm school 2818. A comfortable day was about 110F. It was always said the ARMY used the base, but left because it was uninhabitable. So The Marines took it over! Hoorah!

oh ok I know who he was now. See I worked at the Engineer side, where they had all the generators and heavy equipt. So I was not too familiar with most of the guys on the motor t side, plus they had a lot of people working there and civilians as well. do you remember someone by the name of cpl chavez?

I once did a field day inspection for my squad.and when I got to Lcpl.Custer's room,there was no shower door!When I asked about it He just said "Oh man! you wouldn't believe it unless you seen it!" I said "Busted" This is the same dude who threw a flaming mop from the 2nd deck on a field day night while I was duty NCO. and got a DUI on the way to his promotion to Cpl.

My son is stationed at 29 Palms. He just made Lance Corporal. I am so proud him. For some reason when I went there last month I just want to shake everyones' hand. I wish all Marines the very best. God Bless you.

One thing I do admire as a MARINE is the brotherhood MARINES share. Even after being off active duty... HOORAHHHH!

94-98 3D LAR
98-02 MCCES
08-?? MCCES

I've got more than my fair share of time in the stumps! I do have to say that I love the range out here. $50 a year for 24/7 access. In North Carolina I was paying $8 per hour. If I took my son, $16 per hour. Even with all the open BLM land where it is legal to shoot, I support the local range

Default Remember the Sand Monster?

Lima 3/7 from '92 to '95...
Sgt's Course some time in the later 90's.

I've always said that the hardest part about running the ridge was just getting up to the darn thing.

I was one of those grunts that kept going to get coffee at the C&E school cuz they had chicks there

400 series ranges were awesome! Best place for combined arms and fire/maneuver

I was in the stumps for about 6 months for air support operations operators course. Chow hall was great. Our barracks kicked ***. That's about it.

Did you know Das or Gholston. They're both retired Marines and got civilian jobs there.

Never stationed at 29 Palms but spent many CAXs there and the Sergeant's Course.
