Letter from the War
I love finding letters from the past in our archives.....it gives us a glimpse into history.
Lt. Comdr. C. V. Chamberlain was stationed in the Marianas Islands his letter was written on December 4th, 1944. He was working 7 days a week and hadn't heard from home for 3 months... A good reminder of the sacrifices our veterans make for us from the past and the present...
Eight superstructure hangars, 130 by 160 feet each, and ten 160-by-190-foot repair hangars were erected for the field. Cooperation between the Army Engineers and the Seabees produced the largest air repair base in the Pacific for the repair of B-29's in the Marianas. The first B-29's landed on November 24, 1944.
