Many of these pictures are not from Kwajalein but some may be from other atolls in the area or may be recognizable by some site visitors. My father is the guy in the boat with the jungle hat on. His name was LCDR Joseph H."Harry" Corn and my mother's name was Hazel. I'm the baby in the photos. We were on Kwajalein in parts of '51, '52,  '53. The Easter bonnet photos were taken Easter of 1953 and I assume involved the officer's wives. Ironically my first vivid memory in this life is walking up the ramp of the MATS plane that brought us back to the states.

Here is my Amateur Radio Station that I used and made good use of set up in my trailer. I got on the air at around noon just about every day just for about 30 or 40 minutes running phone patches back to the USA mainland for those people that couldn't afford phone calls or for anyone that needed to make a call to their relatives or loved ones.. It was an exciting time and the people really appreciated the calls we made... I also did the same thing from the Amateur Radio Club Shack KX6BQ / KX6BU on the week-ends for about 6 or 7 hours each day on he week ends depending on the signal clarity for those calls. Each caller had about 10 or 15 minutes to talk sometimes more depending on how many people were waiting to get thru. Some times there were quite a bunch... Clem Brzoznowski, CDC EIC, Kwaj. 1970-75
