a joy to work there. We spent most of our time watching Cuba. Our LOPAR
reached all the way to Cuba. and we tracked all the highjacked commercial
planes at that time. There were 4 Herc batteries and four Hawk batteries,
attached to Homestead Air Force Base."
Note: "A" Battery 2/52 Everglades National Park is now on
the National register of historic places.
