Welcome to Dragoon Base Benny.

If you look in the video section, there are a bunch of short videos taken by one of our members walking through Camp Gates as it is now. I was only there once, when I first arrived in the 2d Cav Jan 1974. Spent the rest of my tours at Camp Pitman.

Quite the difference between the two camps, one in the middle of town and the other in the boonies!
