Although I’ve only spent time on two of the bases listed above, I’ve heard horror stories about several others in the CONUS that I’m glad I never set foot on. Grand Forks was the pits back in the ‘60s, terrible blizzards and nothing to do after duty hours but play cards all night or get drunk in the barracks or NCO club. I went out to Indian Springs back in the early ’80s on a HQ TAC SAV and was blow away at how desolate the area was with little or no services/business in the area.
