The trainees made this from stones and rocks, then painted them. It's identical to the T.I. Wings we used to wear before the "badge" was adopted. Here's a little history about this beautiful rock garden.

During the 60s, the 3710th squadron trained mainly guards and reserves. But because of the build-up of the Vietnam War, more and more civilians were joining the guards and reserves. Soon, other squadrons had to start taking guard and reserve flights. Dave Mariano and myself trained the first reserve flights in the 06 squadron at that time, and they were flight numbers R-49 and R-50, the same flights that built this rock garden. It was located directly in front of our "I" type barracks... the photo was taken from the view of the sidewalk that crosses the top of the picture which means, it was taken looking at the rock garden upside down. During the 60s, when all T.I.s had their own barracks, rock gardens were a show of "flight pride", and were plentiful throughout BMT. Dave and I were certainly proud of this one!
