I understand that the company streets such as pictured here are gone now -- I truly hope there is at least one remaining for historical purposes.  I went through basic training here in 1980, was assigned to Fort Jackson from 81-84, and returned again in 1991.  There was certainly an "energy" around these old company streets.
