Beaufort, SC



B is for Beaufort, South Carolina

We lived in the community of Beaufort while stationed here.

Another great one Gregg. Did not know the Marines were in SC. I spent US Army boot camp at Fort Jackson, SC in 1968. I will probably write that about in the coming days. Hmmm. Should it be under F or J? ツ

I've played Beaufort a few times when I was touring. Never spent much time there but it seemed like kind of a nice place.

Glad to see you A to Z-ing again with us. I like this topic.
