Made an error it wasn't Wake Is. made a fuel stop was at Midway Island. There is a Memorial dedicated to the defenders of the island against the Japanese during WWII. During the Vietnam War thousands of US Troops stopped at Midway for fuel and emergency repairs. This was over Forty years ago, when I was younger, much younger.
