Garcia, Christmas 1972

The time is fast approaching when our
deployment to Diego Garcia will be history for
all to read. As we look back upon the
seven or eight months spent on the Island,
many will think to themselves that it won't be
hart to forget. But there were times
spent here that will remain a part of us as
cherished memories. They can probably be
broken down into two groups: First
Construction achievements wich will speak for
themselves as a lasting tribute to SEABEE
endeavor, and Secondly, our off-duty
enjoyments whether it be liberty or R &
R. When we address ourselves to the
latter, no one can deny that the Bob Hope
Christmas USO Show is not high on our
list. These last few pages are devoted
to that show.

On the page
below, the picture in the upper right shows Bob
laying a block in BEQ 1. This room became
the infamous "Bob Hope Suite" where Bob stayed
on his visit in 1987, and in which innumerable
marriages are consummated! If you were one
of the lucky ones to occupy the BHS, be sure to
tell your oldest kid that he was made in the
room Bob Hope built!
