Did you go to Boot Camp in San Diego? It too was closed, in 1993, and has since become
a development of retail and commercial business's know as Liberty Station. Liberty Station consist of a retail
and commercial district, a promenade, an educational district, a residential district, a hotel district, an office district
and a park/open space area along the boat channel. (from Wikipedia). The best memory that survives is the USS RECRUIT
(TDE-1) pictured above. The below links will take you to very informative articles as well as several videos of
