I recently stumbled upon these old gems. Can anybody recognize anything that's still standing?

Comanche was truly a calvary horse as she participated in many parades on Fort Ord as well as throughout the state of California, Arizona and Oregon.
She started in the late 1960s for the last graduating class of basic trainees then in 1970 on the Main Parade Field, Drill Sargent Field, and Fritsche Airfield for every commanding general incoming and outgoing - the 9th calvary, the 10th calvary, Basic Combat Support Brigade, Cook and Bakers School, and Air Brigade.
She paraded in the city of Marina, Seaside, Pacific Grove, Salinas, Santa Cruz, Watsonville, Castroville, San Jose, King City, Paso Robles, Redding, Palm Springs, Reno, Redwood City, San Juan Bautista, Soledad, Gilroy, Morgan Hill, Walnut Creek, Ashland and Medford Oregon, and Yuma Arizona.
She won 1st place in most all off-post parades, and paraded in the Army Birthday Parade in 1976 on the Main Parade Field. (Waymarking.com)

The last ceremonial horse to serve on the fort was buried with full military honors.

4. Can't seem to find this site. May have been bulldozed and developed on a long time ago.

Made my first trip to Ord last month AMAZING place... I wanted to get some pictures but left my batteries at home so ended up getting very few with my cellphone before it died... A few of them I like how they look and just wish I had used a better camera for it.

Place has so much to offer I feel like it would take a hundred trips to see it all

Yes, a hundred visits might do it. Each time I go out there I discover something new. Most days though I find myself riding around with my mouth open in awe of it all..lol.

I'm very happy to see that site still in tact and not vandalized. It was a treat to visit in the past.

edit: removed quoted pics (redundant)

Roamed up and down the trails South of the hospital/DOD today. The Army built a Viet-Cong village out here back in the 60's but I'm sure any remains are long gone. Gonna keep lookin though.

1. Half-buried bunker.


2. Porta-Potti...Ord style!


3. Infested with Bees..Do not go up there!


4. Keep Fort Ord Wild!


5. One more inside the backcountry latrine.

Found this old picture online. Shows part of the Vietnamese village they constructed out there. The well in the foreground had a tunnel entrance in it which led to an underground room. There was also a shack that hid another entrance. If any of this is still out there I will find it....someday.

1. Pic of the original entrance to the village. Soldiers involved in this type of training wore faceshields, gloves and crotch protection. A BB in the eye would not be good.


2. Punji stakes under a footbridge booby trap.

Apologies for the poor quality. Snapped them with my phone.

Did a little research last night and I think I have the general area of this site. Don't really expect to find much out there, but you never know. Heading over there this weekend just for the hell of it.

Careful of the punji sticks.

After you posted this yesterday I took a google tour around. I haven't seen any pictures of the tanks (or tank parts) that are out in the middle of the base.

The tanks are still out there, right off of S. Boundary Rd. They are still cleaning up that area though. There is no tree cover between them and the fence.

Realized today just how much land there is out there. Musta rode 20+ miles of fire roads and trails today without a sniff. A bit disappointed at not finding this site, but it was still worth the trip...beautiful day. Took a few shots of a couple of the Vernal pools out there. These areas were used in the 60"s an 70"s to simulate Vietnamese rice paddies, so I was hoping that the site where they built the village would be close to either one of these areas. Anyway, headed over to attempt the Impossible but heard gunfire when I got close. Oh well, there's always next weekend.

1. Machine Gun Flats

Great pics of a fantastic park area.I really do need to ride this more. If you want to know more about the simulated Viet-Cong village talk to Tasmith. He might be able to give you some info.
