Bill Chambers (left) and Tim Dawson were Bill Jentz' roommates in Barracks 517 in this March 1969 photograph. A month later, Headquarters Company moved to the then-new brick barracks on North Post Fort Myer. As already mentioned, all but one of those 5 'new' barracks' have already been demolished for new structures. Headquarters Company is now known as Headquarters Command.

From left to right: George Turner, Larry Looker and Ed Veazey, all of whom called Fort Myer South Post their home in the late 1960's. This shot was taken outside Barracks 517 and you can see Bill Jentz' 1963 Ford Galaxy Convertible parked illegally on Higgins Street, and Building 604 is behind the car.
