Painted Rocks Reviews & Ratings
This spot in Fort Irwin reminds me of my one of favorite experiences in the Army Reserve. A battle buddy and I were placed on a detail to support the Best Warrior Competition. The sergeant majors were really cool and the friends I met on the detail made my experience enjoyable. Wish I could say that about most of my other drill weekends.
Definitely a must see place especially if you have loved ones who've served in the military.
Fellow military who have served at the National Training Center show their pride. I consider it a National moment.
I love passing those rocks while leaving Fort Irwin.
This makes your heart swell and extremely proud to be an American.
