To think I was to be stationed there. I am thankful my orders were changed I went to Japan. EXCELLENT PHOTOGRAPH.

My dad worked there as a private contractor back in the 90s when the demil station (JACADS) was still active. They sued to make the island very accommodating to contractors and those stationed there. Swimming pool, golf course, scuba lessons, racquetball courts, tennis courts, soccer field, fishing exhibitions, and a baseball field were all available on this tiny island. Nothing but dirt now.

Johnston Island was one of the U.S. Coast Guard's Loran Station during the cold war. This was home to a few skilled technicians over the years.
