    Interesting. Never heard about that one. My father served in the Alaska Department as a radar operator/maintenance man in 43-45 while my uncle was serving as an army machine gunner. In 42 he was attached to a National Guard unit that was defending the KGO radio tower in San Francisco. In 43 he shipped to the Pacific and joined the island hoping campaign.
