Road Trip: Marine Corps Base Hawaii

Marine Corps Base Hawaii (MCBH), formerly Marine Corps Air Station, Kaneohe Bay and originally Naval Air Station Kaneohe Bay, is a U.S. Marine Corps base facility and air station located on the Mokapu Peninsula of windward O'ahu in the City and County of Honolulu. Marine Corps Base Hawaii, Kaneohe Bay, is home to Marines, sailors, their family members, and civilian employees. The United States Marine Corps operates a 7,800-foot runway at the base.

MCBH is home for the 3rd Marine Regiment, Marine Aircraft Group 24, Combat Logistics Battalion 3 (CLB-3) 3rd Radio Battalion, and the Navy's Patrol and Reconnaissance Wing 2.

On April 15, 1994, the Marine Corps consolidated all of its installations in Hawaii. MCAS Kaneohe Bay, Camp H.M. Smith, Molokai Training Support Facility, Manana Family Housing Area, Puuloa Range, and the Pearl City Warehouse Annex combined to form a new command, the Marine Corps Base Hawaii, headquartered at MCBH Kaneohe Bay.



All U.S. military units located in Hawaii fall under the command of the U.S. Pacific Command (USPACOM) which is headquartered at Camp H. M. Smith on Oahu.

 The Commanding General of Marine Forces Pacific (MARFORPAC) also commands 12 Marine Corps bases and stations in Arizona, California, Hawaii and Japan, as well as operational forces in Hawaii, and Okinawa, as well as units deployed to Southeast/west Asia.

Docked at Pearl Harbor along the "Battleship Row," the USS Bowfin Submarine Museum & Park is a fitting tribute to the 52 American submarines and more than 3,500 submariners lost in World War II.

 

The Bowfin is one of only 15 U.S. World War II submarines that did not wind up as scrap metal or as target practice for another military ship. The Pacific Fleet Memorial Association was chartered in 1978 and acquired the Bowfin just one year later. In 1980, the submarine was brought to Pearl Harbor and docked next to the USS Arizona Memorial Visitor Center. Finally, on April 1, 1981, the Bowfin officially opened to the public as a "museum ship."

The 10,000-square-foot museum exhibits a variety of submarine-related artifacts, including weapon systems, battle flags, photographs, recruiting posters and detailed submarine models. Visitors can examine the inner workings of a Poseidon C-3 missile, the only one of its kind to be put on public display. Also on exhibit is a Purple Heart that was awarded to crewmember Reid Lee, the lone Bowfin casualty of war. (Lee suffered shrapnel wounds during a surface engagement during the Bowfin’s seventh patrol.

I am glad to be back, and I have missed you, too!
I was struck down very hard by that pneumonia.
‘Twas terrible!

Hoo-ray for the single ping!

Is it fixed?

I WILL be careful, Sis.
Hopefully the “mighty Moxie” will get to work and back safely.
Dawn lives only a few miles from where I work, so I might stay with her tomorrow evening if the weather is still bad when I leave.

I was busy with Gottschalk and Leroy Anderson, and then sitting out a night for a chamber music concert from Seattle thanks to the miracle of the Internet. More concerts this weekend too.

I took my flu shot and got a mild cold 5 days later, which is now gone. It's been a mild winter down here and disease free. (Knock on wood.)

I know Moxie does her best, but maybe staying with Dawn is the best solution. I’m sure Mr. B would agree. :)

My commute was good. I had to stop at the post office to mail a late check. I always just drive up to the big blue boxes, reach out my window, and slide the mail in. SURPRISE!!! Now I know where the mail boxes were stolen from.

Last month, in the news, was a bit about the police looking for a man who stole 3 mail boxes...the great big ones that are bolted to the ground.

Just like this, but with a chute on it so you don't have to get out of the car.

The 3 boxes are no longer there....I had to drive around front and get out and go inside to mail it.

Then I come home to my Mom in bad pain that has started only an hour before....left back and side, right where the kidneys. I've been googling kidney stones and trying to get her settled. Finally have her in bed with a heating pad. This is not something we need.
