    Good read. Wonder if there is a Lt Bullis like officer out there that would like to follow in his footsteps? We have a cartel problem down south.

    Never knew that.

    I trained at Camp Bullis in the summer of 1986

    Went to Air Base Defense school at Camp Bullis in 1974. We lived in tents and were all alone. All our training materials were Army. It was not a fun time. Did not know the great history.

    San Antonio!
    I knew it was named after him, as I've spent a lot of time on there; but I didn't know his story in this detail.

    Thanks for posting!

    Anyone who has been on Bullis and recognized the "Stone House," Bldg 5908, which sits just up the hill to the left as you drive through the main part of the base, here is the history behind it...
