Reader Peter Swanson is not impressed with Wesley Clark’s recitation of his humble beginnings growing up in a trailer home at Fort Irwin. Mr. Swanson notes that “EVERYONE at Irwin lives in a trailer home. Something to do with the desert. I tried a case with one of my colleagues who was stationed at Irwin. She and her husband, as captains, had a nice double wide. I was fortunate to stay at the Distinguished Visitors Quarters (where visiting generals would stay). The DVQ was four trailers arranged with a nice courtyard in the middle. The courtroom was a double-wide.”
