I am very happy to see this site. I was an Army Warrant Officer and was station on mainland Japan and then Okinaw from 1989 to 1997. While on main we spent 3 days on Iwo Jima doing a staff ride over the battle sites and were hosted by the crew of the LORAN station. As an ET I was totally blown away by the Tower and Amplifier room. After three years at Camp Zama I went to Fort Buckner on Okinawa and visited the site at Gesashi that we provide comms to. The Coast Guard and LORAN in general is a chapter in DoD history that far too few know about. Thanks to all of you for what you did. Also in a time of GPS jamming and spoofing there has occasional talk about bringing it back, but nobody wants to pay the fiscal or manpower bill. This site is a treasure.

Tomorrow is our snowbird RV Resort Veterans Day Parade and I just was again reading the Operation Tight Reign story about the C-123 aircraft that was used to supply the building of the SEA Loran C Chain in the summer of 1966. There is a section of the write up about moving a forklift from Sattahip, Thailand to Con Son Island, Vietnam. I do not remember where or how Lt Kaufmann (RIP) acquired the forklift, however I do remember him saying go get the 2.5T IH we have to go get a forklift and load it into the C-123. The Lt was very nervous as I backed the truck under the rear of the C-123 to transfer the forklift into the cargo bay. The C-123 used 2100 feet of the 2300 foot Thai Navy air field to get airborne with the load. Happy Veterans Day to all. Hard to believe this event happen 52 years ago. Chris
