Visiting a WWII Base

This is where General Douglas MacArthur based from as he chased the Japanese back north in his new Guinea campaign.

At the bottom of the hill was a rest and recuperation place, now called "Hawaii Village" because it reminded American troops of what Hawaii looked like. Some of the WWII Quonset huts are still in use. My grandfather was here briefly, too.
