In regards to the posting in the newsletter of April 6th. The writer that stated that in 1959 that 2nd Battalion barracks were brick. I went through Parris Island recruit training in January, February, and March of 1966 (Platoon 215). The picture of my wife and myself was taken in from of my barracks on the windy graduation day of 9 March 1966. As you can see from the picture, the barracks of 2nd Battalion were wood with what appeared to be either wood or asbestos siding.
Also, as to Yellow Footprints. After being herded off of the bus around midnight and into Receiving while being yelled and screamed at the entire time, there could have been yellow, red, purple or any other color footprints on the deck, and I don’t think anyone getting off of that bus would have noticed them.
