A rhetorical question or a dangling participle...no matter, but if you just throw a probing question out there to any one at all you'll be favored with that 10K. stare indicating, "what the hell you talkin' about, Slick"?

There were four, U S Naval Mobile Construction Battalions, then commonly referred to as MOBS, up on the mountain top of Cubi Point, Philippine Island..Those construction forces were shoving a mountain off into the salty depths of Subic Bay and building an air base... The Korean War, commonly known as the United Nations Police Action, was still being waged off across the South China Sea... The
Seabees there at Cubi Point lived in the most basic-basic conditions...mud and insects and outdated and sometimes spoiled food ...no clothing lockers and wooden sleeping cots with a thin pad referred to as a mattress...news of the day and times come over local Armed Forces Radio Station at Subic Bay Naval Base...Some troops had Zenith trans-oceanic radios that would pick up distant transmitting stations telling about the following, alarming event:


On Nov. 1, 1952, the United States exploded the first hydrogen bomb, in a test at Eniwetok in the Marshall Islands.

Of course, the event happened and there was no occurances of global fissioning as rumors had implied..that being the entire planet would have been incinerated by the uncontrolled nuclear reactions. Does anyone remember beside
me? JW
