Building the Rooms

Click on any of the photos to see a larger version.

A photo of what our tents look like. These five all belong to our company as well as the first two that were built just past the far left tent. On the far right are the CPs, our offices, and the A Company CP is on the left side of the ones that are visible.

A photo of the view that we have coming out of the tent. That metal structure on the other side of the barrier is the frame of one of the tents going up.

As I stated before, quite a few people worked on building the individual rooms inside the Alaskan tents, but by and far most of the work was done by the crew chiefs and door gunners. 1SG Horn spearheaded this with his personal crew of SPC Bret Powell and SPC Andrew Bryer. I took a few photos of these guys in action.
