    When I was stationed at Ft Sill, OK, I was very nervous. Why? because of the many negative nicknames they had for it. Because of its reputation for training accidents, Ft Sill has been known as "Ft Kills", the "Killing Fields" and "Geronimo's Revenge".

    What's your favorite nickname for your favorite military base?
