There we set up a camp and cleared an area for the Station, built a Dock, 2 Fuel Oil Tanks, a water intake structure and the foundation for the Research Building. We returned to the States in April, 1967. I deployed again in December of 1967 with about the same number of SeaBees and built a three Story Research facility returning home in April 1968.
