  1. Spent 2 years there back in the late 80s, It was not a bad place, The enlisted club was almost in our parking lot and the dining facilities were right next door to our barracks

  2. This is the place that just detained James Freeman (photographer/videographer) for taking vids from a "PUBLIC" sidewalk. James was handcuffed and all three of his cameras were confiscated. Maybe they could spend more time training the troops about the Constitution as they swore an oath to uphold it.

  3. Fort Huachuca is 70 SouthEast of Tucson. You should also tell folks about "B" Troop, 4th US Calvary (Memorial), I was the Ceremonial Detachment's First Sergeant from 1994 to 1995.

  4. Hello, Fort Huachuca. Please remember my Grandpa Charles Richards worked in Government in your base. Greets from Germany, Christian Werner. Wish all your troops just the best. You make a good job

  5. as cool as you think it sounds to your friends, anyone in intel SHOULD NOT be telling everybody that they are. Good luck though, y'all will have fun there at ol Fort WeGotchya.

  6. @FuzzyBrains555 don't broadcast that you're a mike. You are now a target. You better pray you're in fox co. when you get there
