Hello from Dan on Kwajalein!

Post by corsairfreak » Mon Jul 02, 2007 5:22 am

Hi everyone!

I'm a firefighter at the U.S. Army base on Kwajalein Atoll, in the Marshalls. I'm into WWII PTO history in a big way, and one of my hobbies is wreck diving. I enjoy shipwrecks, and most of all- planes! There's a lot of them out here at Kwajalein, especially the aircraft graveyard near Roi, at the north end of the atoll.

I've written a couple of articles on diving the aircraft graveyard off Roi, and if you're interested, here's the links-

I've also written an article on diving the wreck of the Prinz Eugen, which is about three miles across the lagoon from Kwajalein island. Here's the link for that- (the article begins on page 3)

Looking forward to maybe being able to contribute to the website. I've got a lot of underwater pictures of various ship and aircraft wrecks that are out here at Kwajalein Atoll.

Cheers! :)
