Gunnery Sergeant USMC (Ret)

By: Paul T. Kuras

We aviation guys in the late 1940’s used to fire annual qualification at Camp Mathews as we did not have a range at El Toro. The summer of 1948 I was TADed to Mathews as a coach. and spent my time crunching the local hills. Still remember old “E” range with it’s 100 targets. Sure brought back memories when ever I drove down I5 in later years and saw how urbanization has taken it’s toll.
