I remember the town getting really tricked out back in 1970/1971...

I was there a short 25 years after that war ended... at the time, I thought WWII had happened long ago. Now it's been over 40 years since I was there myself.
There was lots of evidence of the fight around... bullet holes (pock marks really) and still mangled pieces of metal on kFord Island... when I landed for a short time at Wake Island, there were rows of wrecked aircraft linning the runway. I once found a bazooka shell in about 20 feet of water off the main drag in Honolul... I brought it to the surface then decided it might be very dangerous and dove down and buried it in the sand again... it didn't occure to me to call it to the attention of authorities... I can only claim youth as an excuse.

I wonder what those areas looks like today?
