Great Lakes surely has changed A LOT. Back in '83 I spent a "mini camp" there. You see, little Boq was once a Sea Cadet aka Sea Pup.

Back then, it seems that the whole base was vintage Korean War. No air conditioner in the barracks, hangar-like exercise facilities, and smallish galley down the road. No simulators and a barnlike shooting range.

The training was the same as that of regular recruits, we went through what the call today the red and white phases of the training. While the regular recruits did their final blue phase.

In some shoebox, I still have an embarassing I.D. from that period.
