Charles, I served with HHT & M Co from 82-84. We have a facebook page called Pond Barracks with over 400 members ranging from the early 60's to the closing of the base. Feel free to come over and request membership as it is a closed group. We have alot of fun with various activities to help keep the memories alive and to bring back memories of days gone by.  Look forward to seeing you there.
