The Story Of Treasure Island, S.F., California – Returning Home – History & Tour The Island

In the San Francisco bay is a small island call Treasure Island. I spent my childhood there when it was a naval base in the 80’s. As and adult, I returned to see what it was like now! There are about 2,000 residents living there now and I get to talk to a few of them about life on the island. Ive looked forward to this video for a long time and Im happy I get to show you around my old island!

    Hey son. Loved this video. So I see you shared all your naughtiness that I didn’t know about. You’re in big trouble. Such great memories.

    Wow…I’m glad you did this video. My family was there 74′- 85’…lots of memories there. My mom’s worked in the Navy Exchange. It looks hellava different.

    Dude!! I can’t believe I missed this video back when you posted it. This video is beautiful. What amazing memories for you. Many people dream of growing up on an island! Now I may understand how you’ve lived in so many places. I was living in Birmingham, AL when we saw that horrifying earthquake on T.V.

    That crab story had me literally laughing out loud!! Can you imagine if your poor mom had found that thing? But you were clever. 😎 My dear mom was a shoe lover, too… Then Kenny casually says, "This thing here I set on fire." 😂😂🤣

    I was military myself (a WAC, Regular Army, 1975-78,) and I was stationed on The Presidio in early 1976. It was one of the most beautiful places I’d ever seen. From the window of my barracks I could see the Golden Gate Bridge. A chaplain I worked for took me with his family to visit Angel Island one day. The path I jogged along on post looked out over the blue bay and the boats.

    Around 7:31, aren’t those old "temporary" barracks they were supposed to tear down decades ago? It tugs at my heartstirngs to see those. I lived in one on Fort Meade. They were the WAC barracks, and our young Lt. said he had nightmares about somebody dropping a match in one of those buildings!

    (I got myself transferred back to the east coast for…sigh – a man. How dumb we are when we’re young!! Didn’t work out, but without that transfer to Fort Meade I wouldn’t eventually have had this life and my wonderful sons. When I was on that plane ready to leave SF, though, I cried!)

    I was so sad when the Presidio ceased to be an Army post, and they tore down LAMC (Letterman Army Medical Center,) to which I was assigned as a Chaplain’s Assistant. Is that where your family went for medical care??

    I went to school on Treasure Island in the late 1960’s. It was so beautiful. I remember the big fountain of the world, and the palm trees lining the shore. Our school at that time was in an old barracks right next to the water. Our quarters were on Yerba Buena the island that Treasure Island is attached to.

    Yes I was a Navy wife there in 92/93/94 we had 3 kids and they loved it, My Daughter use to love to go to Pirates Cov and have lunch, there was some little beach that my kids went there that I did not know about at the time, My friend and I use to walk around that trail along the rocks. and the 4th of July was great we would hang out our window and whats them go off over the golden gate bridge. Our Address was 1125 Gateview Ave # C LOL yea my son came home with a crab too but I caught him 🙂 so he put it in a bucket outside ( I would not let him bring it in), somehow that thing got in the house anyway and scared me to death

    I really enjoyed this video. Good memories. Not too many people can say they grew up on a island.
