Air Force Housing

After having the opportunity to explore the hospital where I was born, I got access to the old neighborhood where I lived as a child: Arnold Heights. Like the hospital itself, this Arnold Heights served military personal and was abandoned with the contraction of March ARB. At the time of these photographs, the United States was engaged in the wars of Iraq and Afghanistan. Since these neighborhoods were unused, the military began repurposing these areas for urban warfare combat training. I had the odd sense of complexity among these walls. At one time, they were homes to families where kids like myself would play in the playgrounds. Now they were the practice zones where people prepared for war. Later, I found another abandoned neighborhood at the former George AFB. While photographing these bases, I wondered where did the grown children of these places go?
