Have been a member since 2011 when I was just a sophomore at the University of Kentucky, but haven't posted in about a year and a half due to a really busy life now, Army officer, etc.

Still as loyal and dedicated a fan as ever, and lived and died with every pitch last season, just didn't have the time to post (usually listened to Charlie and Dave while working). Stationed at Fort Leonard Wood, Missouri and representing the Nats in every way possible here. 6 days until baseball is back (kind of!) Anyways looking forward to posting more again hopefully.

Welcome back.   MOS?   The missus was at Leonard Wood in the 80s.    She calls it "lost in the woods".   :)

Appreciate it! And 31A. 2nd LT in the MP Corps. And yes, it is indeed lost in the woods. Not the ideal place for a young 22 year old, haha. Making the most of it though, and truly loving my job so all is not lost!

Calipari is a Pittsburgh boy so somewhere deep in the recesses, I like KY.   :)    Ever visit Ft. Gordon?

I have not. Had a buddy who was a cav scout that was stationed there. Said it wasn't too bad. Only other post I've been at long-term besides here is Fort Lewis, WA which blows this place out of the water.

Ft. Lewis   ...  my out-laws (:)) live in Puyallup, WA.    FIL loves McChord for retired military medical services.    He's retired Navy and was a starter at the golf course at McChord.   I worked for a guy who did his AIT at Gordon.   One of my buddies was signal corps at Gordon.   I did my AIT at the old North Fort at Polk.

My son and daughter-in-law finished their "contracts" in 2009 and 2008. They also call that place "Fort Lost-in-the-Woods". She was a regular, stationed at Ft Hood...the biggest base I've ever seen. Son trained at Ft Lewis before deploying with a unit from Louisiana. "Re-deployed" back to Ft Polk: says that Hood makes Ft Polk look like a place "in an advanced state of decay".

I've read (mindfact?) that all the barracks, etc. at the North Fort are gone.    We had the old WWII barracks at Polk (when we were allowed to stay in them :) ).       My uncle was a tanker with Patton and he was at Polk before heading to Europe.    Probably shovelin' crap.    :)

I'll ask my son what he remembers of Ft Polk, but his unit arrived there and left the next morning for a Reserve center in Baton Rouge where the families were waiting. Incidentally, his unit trained with MP's at Ft Lewis because their job was to explain, to journalists and NATO political leaders, what the MP's were doing.

"Fort Lost in the Woods" has been the name for Ft Leonard Wood since Christ was a Corporal

It may have something to do with "Balt" in your username.     :stir:

Cheers all!

Rich-L here. Big Nats fan and have lived in the DC area for 15 years now. Grew up on Montreal with Dawson, Carter, Rogers, Raines, etc.... Spent many a summer night of my youth at the Big Owe. Was THRILLED to have the Expos move to my new hometown, as obviously that situation was untenable. Looking for a fun board to talk Nats, avoid the MLB board trolls, and have some fun.
