I don't think the 82nd barracks between Gruber and Ardennes were the WWII barracks Teddy is referring to. Those cinder block barracks were built in the 60's IIRC.

He means the splinter barracks down off Butner next to Pope. They were built during WWII. I stayed in them in a platoon bay in 1978. SOPC was there back till at least 2005 or so, and 4-3 SFG(A) was in them in 2009.

"It is not the critic who counts; not the man who points out how the strong man stumbles, or where the doer of deeds could have done them better. The credit belongs to the man who is actually in the arena, whose face is marred by dust and sweat and blood; who strives valiantly; who errs, who comes short again and again, because there is no effort without error and shortcoming; but who does actually strive to do the deeds; who knows great enthusiasms, the great devotions; who spends himself in a worthy cause; who at the best knows in the end the triumph of high achievement, and who at the worst, if he fails, at least fails while daring greatly, so that his place shall never be with those cold and timid souls who neither know victory nor defeat." - President Theodore Roosevelt, 1910
