I was browsing you web site and noticed a company went through very close to the time I was there.

Just thought I would send you some pictures from my recruit training book from when I was in boot camp.

I remember they shortened our training to eight weeks due to the number of recruits they were processing and if I remember correctly they had a spinal meningitis outbreak at the San Diego boot camp and were diverting all new recruits to Great Lakes.

There should be 5 pages in the attachment. 1 is the book cover and 4 pages of pictures and names of command staff and recruits.
