This set of low-rise barracks on the east side of the island appeared to
be of 1980s origin and were in remarkably bad condition for their comparative
youth. By contrast to the careful craftsmanship embodied in the older buildings on
the North tip of the island, the architectural barrenness likely indicated their
use by lower ranking servicemembers, as well as an implication that they were not
meant to last. Buildings with no respect for the past cannot expect to be
respected by the future.
