Hate to hear about the stroke. I am in reasonably good health except for my memory, My short term memory is truly short term. You do have some photos og Gates. I remember the one story buildings. I spent more time at Pittman than Gates for whatever reason. The German Barracks were across the road from the Pittman main gate. Those were my best memories,and even though I didn't realize it at the time, the best years of my life. Pathetic, but true.

Edward, photos you have are at Camp Pittman, Brother. Gates was out in the woods. Great photos.

As it stands now, I don't think you can delete them. The network is going through an update and things are all goofed up right now. Nothing is working right and it is getting pretty frustrating.

Normally you would just have an "options" button you could click on to make changes to your photos, but it is missing.
