Followed signs and drove to area. From road, we could see some airplanes but area had not been mowed and looked overgrown. Went down road to guard station and was asked for military identification. Husband presented Veteran of US Army Identification and was told they did not accept that. Was advised this was primarily a facility where airplanes are repaired... 更多
If you are authorized military privleges, this is a nice little base complete with a lot of facilities normally associated with a larger base. In addition to food & fuel, there is a nice small beach, some trailer rentals, credit unions, gym, and so forth. Enjoyed the trip

We got to meet and chat with aircrews for both the HH-60 Jayhawk and the C-130J. If you don't know much about the coast... 更多
