    mark5pt56,

    Were you work at the "Farm" in May-June 2004 or summer of 2006? I went through training at there in the '04 time frame and was working at the armory for a while in the summer '06 time frame.

    In '04 we went there for pre-deployment training and did shotgun, carbine and pistol stuff. A few of use then went over to the shoot house area to do CQB stuff.

    In 2006 I was at the armory and was living in that beautiful team house outside the gates.
