whoa-ho! This looks likes info/posts from someone that has put in their time at MWTC.

A fair number of us have climbed here using the painted on ratings and names, but seems like these names for each section are traditional names from the folks in the USMC. Yes?

The names/ratings are from the folks in the Marines yes. If you have any other information I'd love to see it! No formal guide or book though. I'm putting it (slowly) up here so it doesn't get lost with time. Nov 29, 2016
