I used to run laps on antenna hill. The first night going up the main road to the top was intense. About halfway up on the right was the phalanx gun system. All of a sudden all the lights came on and it looked like it was tracking us. That will get the blood pumping.
Every once in awhile I would run the middle road around the back. I know that if the one back there every went off you would have to scrape me off the road. lol lots of memories.

I always wondered what genius decided that covering a hill in the middle of a base with lit antennas was a good idea. That freaking hill was an aim point and the indirect fire impact maps proved it.

I would have loved to see that bobcat. I knew the vector control guy in our area a bit because I worked with him to get dogs off the base. He was supposed to euthanize them, but screw killing dogs for no reason. He told me he'd catch those bobcats and release them in other parts of the base to clear other animals out, but I never got to see one.

We never killed the wild dogs but we did lay down non-lethal ammo on them... They were digging holes under along a stretch of T-barrier walls on the outskirts of Liberty which haji could use to sneak on base. It was a boring deployment so doing that made it little bit of fun.

No mercy was shown to the wild dogs at Blessing. One morning walking to the DFAC i saw three get lit up at the same time. They were biting people at night over there. It was a black out camp so youd walk right up on them before theyd start growling.
