 Recent pictures of the old ranch
It is sad to see how  the barracks and the buildings have been abandoned and forgotten.
I am sure that would be horrors to Chiefs Bruce and Smoak

Front view of Barracks
Looks like it has all grown up

Back of barracks
Do I remember the washing machines were on the rear lanai?

South Side of Barracks

Building 1 (High Freq)

View of Building 1 from the Maintenance area

View of Building 68  (LU-4) from the road
This is the building that I worked in. 
What happened to all those Marconi antennas and open wire feeders that were at the building?

Old LU-4 looks like a run down dairy barn today
I left a little blood in that building when I cut my hand on the power panel
The only thing that hurt worse was having those two new corpsmen at NAD sew me up

Back of LU-4
All the water tanks and pumps are gone

no comment necessary

I have additional pictures that I can email on request
