Picture
Camp Hardy Staff
CAMP HARDY WAS SET UP ONLY FOR GREEN BERETS,
NAVY SEALS, MARINE FORCE RECON, AIR FORCE
COMMANDO'S, AND OTHER SELECT GROUPS WHO WENT THRU THIS
CAMP BEFORE THEY WENT TO VIETNAM.

THIS WAS THE MOST ELITE CAMP OF IT'S KIND DURING THE
VIETNAM WAR. IN FACT I WOULD SAY IT WAS THE MOST
SOFISTICATED JUNGLE WARFARE TRAINING IN THE
WORLD DURING THAT TIME PERIOD.

I love the picture. It give us courage to be a better soldier not in the battle field but a soldier of our nation. It is a fair credut to us all.

MY CAMP HARDY BROTHERS
I WORKED ALONG SIDE THESE TWO GUYS & OTHER STAFF PERSONNEL PREPARING THE COMBAT REACTION COURSE FOR THE MILITARY SPECIAL OPS UNITS THAT WERE THERE FOR THE TRAINING. OUR EOD PEOPLE
SET UP BOOBY TRAPS AND EXPLOSIVES ALONG THE TRAIL IN ORDER TO GIVE THE REALISTIC FEEL OF REAL COMBAT. THIS WAS NO PLACE FOR MISTAKES, THEY WERE USING 
THE REAL STUFF EXCEPT FOR THE BOOBY TRAPS WHERE WE USED GRENADE SIMULATORS AND DET CORD IN PLACE OF HIGH EXPLOSIVES, THAT WAS ON THE JUNGLE TRAIL 
ITSELF. THE HIGH EXPLOSIVES WAS USED ONLY ON THE SIDES OF THE TRAIL PUT IN DEEP WATER HOLES SET TO GO OFF WHEN THE PATROL WAS IN THE MIDDLE OF THE COURSE. BELIEVE 
ME THAT GOT EVERYONES ATTENTION. I WILL POST MORE COMMENTS ON THIS SUBJECT AS I THINK OF THEM, IT'S BEEN A LONG TIME SINCE I WAS THERE: 1969.

I was on camp hard for 2 weeks in June 1970. I lost my certificate of training over the years. Is it a possibility you have connections with anyone that has records. I've contacted the records in the USA and they don't have a copy. I retired from a college in North Florida and am now living in Central America not far from the old jungle school in Panama.

Thanks,
Hil Jenkins

There are so many forces in this world. Some forces are very special and some are normal. Special Forces are very necessary for any state to protect state from any bad incident or some external threats.

Special forces are very important for the people of the society without the special forces the people cannot able to become safe. The people should work hard in their countries.

Camp hardy staff is especially for the Special Force peoples. They visit in this camp in the war days. This blog is related about past days.

Camp Hardy inhibits the Special Forces and their work has always been tremendous for the nation. They do deserve the best college paper writing service there is and hopefully, the work would end up appreciated at both ends.
