More concerning your father.

I just checked on your dad's training facility, which was
Camp Blanding, Starke, FL.
This was an Infantry Replacement Training Center.
It was huge by any standard, encompossing 152,000 acres (twice the size of Fort Sill, OK, where I trained, and 7 times the size of Fort Wolters, TX, where I was inducted back in July-43.)
He will recall that it was about 30 miles due south of Jacksonville, FL.. Beautiful country !
At maximum activity, it accomodated 2,157 officers and 58,570 enlisted men.
