It's amazing how quickly the atoll was converted to a bunch of islands into a major naval base to prosecute operations in the Western Pacific. A definite tribute to American efficiency and ingenuity.

My dad served on BB56 for almost 6 years.   When he was 58 or so we took him and my mom down to see BB55.  It was like watching him as a 20 year old scurrying all over the ship.   It all came to a screeching stop when we got  to the galley.  "They had TWO ice cream makers?   We only had ONE!  Well we did always call her 'The Showboat.'
