Comments: Yokwe Yok. I was stationed at Navy 924 from August of 1949 to August of 50, when I was transferred to VR8 and to the 1453rd MAES out of Hickam and Haneda. I have many fond memories (some not so fond) of being on the Rock. I had a good CO in Dr. Carl Whitney, and being a corpsman, many good experiences with the Marshallese. I did several evac flights, met Bishop Feeney, and King Jameta and his family. We delivered many babies at the hospital. I had an extensive shell collection from days on the reef, and had the good fortune to spend some time on the "Morning Star" as we visited other islands to assist with medical problems.

Comments: Yokwa-yok...... I was stationed on Navy 824 from September 1949 to August 1950...at the dispensary at the end of island, next to Ebi. I knew King Jamita, as he visited our sick bay often. As a corpsman, I was familiar with many Marshallese, I spent many happy days there, spent time with Bishop Feeney and sailed on the Morning Star. My Doctor was Captain Karl Whitney who was with his family for the year. There was a Doctor from Guam, his name was John Iman.... I have been back to Christmas Island many times, but not back to Kwaj. I have pictures of doing evacuations by air from Kwajalein to outer islands. I am sure, that now I am 80, all my friends are gone.....but good memories... Thanks, Warren Peterson HMC USN Retired.

Comments: I was "stationed" in Kwaj for 3 weeks in May '82 while implementing a high speed radar recording disk system that I designed for MIT Lincoln Labs and the US Army. My partner, Jeff Lee, and I spent most of the time on Roi Namur. It was an intriguing trip that I'll never forget.

Comments: My daddy worked for West. Elec. I was a very young child, but still
remember collecting shells, riding bikes everywhere, going to church
and picking up coconuts afterward, geckos and hermit crabs in the "old" trailer, and missile launchings. No wonder my favorite vacations are at the beach. Thank you for all of your hard work, what a wonderful website of memories.

Comments: Really enjoyed the pictures. Some things have changed, some have not. It appears there are far more and nicer boats there now than when I was there. I was a scientific aide co-op student on work phase from PSL-NMSU. It was quite an experience being there as a young guy.

Comments: I was on Kwajalein in part of 69 and 70. My Dad was Fire Chief Bob Ragan. It was a wonderful place to live even if for a short period of time. I was a junior in high school and wished I could have stayed longer. Any stories about my dad or the rest of the family, Jody, Kammy, Rick and Mike would be great.

Comments: Hi,

I was borned and raised on Ebeye but I am currently living in Huntsville, Alabama. I starting my full time job on Kwajalein with Raytheon in 1996 as a secretary for the FOM construction shop ("hi Corder") and later transfered to HR ("hi Reka and the gang"). I moved to Huntsville, Alabama in the summer of '98 with my husband and children. I am working and attending University of Alabama majoring in Aerospace Engineering. I have been back to Kwaj couple of times and getting ready for another visit on the 20th of this month. I missed Kwaj so much and if I have my way, I would go back. Your website is very organized and very informative. It brings back memories of the island and the friendly people out there. Kwajalein, I missed you.

p.s. I want to say "hi" or "yokwe" to all of my friends and families out there. All of you out there who have access to a computer, please drop a note.

I have not forgotten anybody on Kwaj or Ebeye. It's just a small place that everybody knows everybody. Take care :) ~ Liz

Comments: I lived on Kwaj from 1978 (at 7 years old) to 1990. I haven't been back since 1995, so it was very nice to see recent pictures. One I especially liked and which gave me a wonderful, though somewhat bittersweet thrill, was the one under "Old trailer w/addition". My dad Walt was the one who had that addition built by the head of the carpenter shop, Pete Fernandez, after our first addition was destroyed by termites. For 11 years (our 1st year there was in a temp trailer), I had the pleasure of often glancing out of that hexagon window at the beautiful island I had the best of fortunes to have grown up on. Thanks for the memories! All Best, Marni Chidsey, KHS 1989

Comments: What a great WEB site, I was stationed there in the navy 1952 to 1953. I got there before we moved into the new 1000 man barracks. In the nine months I was there we had hot showers one month. Due to water shortage we took showers with a one pound coffee can standing in front of a sink in the shower building next door to the old barracks. Wet down, soap down then rinse off those were the good old days. HA. I worked in the disbursing office. After they built the new supply warehouse we moved upstairs in the warehouse. Things have sure changed since then. Recall many nights in the pouring rain at Richardson theater, Macy's and the Acey/Ducey Club which I didn't get into very much, ( I was only 19 years old then). I would sure like to get back there to visit again. It sure looks like an island paradise now compared to when I was there. Not many trees back then.

I still remember all the good times with the new friends I met, the beauty of the island, riding my bike to work, getting drenched by the rain while riding my bike to work, flying through a rainbow enroute to Roi-Namur . . . there are so many memories and not enough space. Thanks for this website - it makes me want to come back !

Comments: My Dad was with Western Electric. I have so many memories of Kwaj. I graduated from Kwaj High 1970. I remember our Senior Trip was to Roi-Namur. Honolulu was "Hono" and probably still is. The Northwest Orient plane on which we flew to and from Kwaj was an obvious "Redtail". We lived on Pine Street, not far from the pool. I miss the beauty of the ocean and all of the wonderful sunsets. I am now back in Winston-Salem after spending almost 4 years in the Navy and then moving to Eastern Oregon and northern Idaho. I consider myself blessed that I experienced Kwajalein. I have two grown sons and am retired from the Department of Veterans Affairs.

Comments: I have very fond memories of Kwaj. I guess things have changed considerably since I was there. We had no TV, no VCRs or DVDs. I remember movies at the Ivy Hall and the Rich. I lived at 404-B Pine Street, just down from George Seitz Elementary. Mr. Larson and Mrs. Roberts were my 6th grade teachers. In 7th grade, I was voted most friendly, along with Lauren Buck, but was in Hono when pictures were taken so I was replaced. I played the Prime Minister in the summer school (we went to school during the summer of '71) production of Cinderella. Would not mind hearing from classmates who were there the same time I was. About a year after leaving Kwaj, we found ourselves in North Dakota! Loved ND, but Kwaj is the best place on earth for a kid to live!
