A sad transition - For those of you who were RTC Orlando boot camp graduates, as I was, you should know that all evidence of a Naval Base are now gone.  The following pictures portray RTC Orlando as it was in it's heyday and sadly, the same view after all the buildings were razed.  I've also included an aerial view of the base as it now appears;  upscale condos, homes, shopping.  A development called Baldwin Park (named after Lake Baldwin - the big lake) now occupies the NTC/RTC site.
