I went to A-School in Millington after boot camp.   For a naval base it had a college like atmosphere with lots of weekend drinking and partying in the dorms. Tasted my first moonshine in our dorm room.

Is there any security present at our various bases around the country?  Or is security considered politically incorrect these days.

An Army National Guardsman shot two others during a scuffle in a Tennessee armory on Thursday, sources told the Daily News.

The gunfire erupted after the three men began to argue in the facility, which sits just outside the Millington Navy Base, about 12:30 p.m., the sources said.  During the spat, one of the men pulled out a gun and opened fire, striking one man in the foot and the other in the leg, sources said.

Both men were taken to the Regional Medical Center in Memphis, where they were expected to survive. The base was put on lockdown, which was lifted a short time after the gunman was taken into custody, a U.S. Navy official said.

More than "7,500 military, civilian, and contract personnel" work on the base, according to a Navy website.
