Newbee to this forum here. Thought I would drop a line to say hello to all in the UP. I was stationed at K.I. Sawyer many moons ago and thought I would let you know what a great place it was. Believe me when I say I will never forget that assignment and the snow in all its glory. Heyho now from Oklahoma.

Later

Hello from Marquette TJBoomer!

You'd probably cry if you drove through the base. It's, well, an airport and a ghetto pretty much. Very run down and nothing but low rents and welfare cases.

Marquette has changed quite a bit as well since you left, not in a bad way just way more business's and new construction. Lots of new condos down by the lower harbor, motels, Wal-mart, Target, Best Buy and all those other big box stores. Great place to live still.
