Below:  The beautiful 4 story barracks we were supposed to move into on arrival  July 1951...from Bud Hankins

Our home to be was the first tent from the orderly room;  the first row of tents not quite across from the latrine - Tent 8A. We promptly named our new quarters Chateau -de Canvas . It was about 15 months before the last of the 7300 Mat. Sqdn. moved to their elegant new home.
