    We called it Brunswick Stew.

    The only thing that was actually good to eat in the Artesia chow hall was the banana bread. Pro tip: If BIA is getting released to eat...stay the hell outta their way or youíll get trampled.

    I have no doubt....particularly on steak night.

    My 1st trip there, Border Patrol and Air Marshal classes were blowing and going...the place looked like a military parade deck, and I think cadets were crammed 4 to a room. The BP and FAM classes had a lot of ex-.mil, and I want to say that the median age was 23....I had kids that age at the time. Luckily, I was in an in-service class and got my own place at the Hilton.

    When I went to FITP later, things were more sedate. I was at the barracks with the pool, but had the room to myself.

    The other hidden gem is Mud Cat Charlies. It's just a few minutes from the campus, to the north, and has excellent seafood.
    Gnat's Landing on St Simons has the best Shrimp and Grits I've ever had. I've been to both Glynco and Artesia - I personally think if I was working at FLETC I'd prefer Artesia.

    Mallery Street Cafe on St.Simon's was my favorite Sunday morning breakfast spot.
