Additional commentary.
1. Frank J. Castanza
I worked for Frank and Put the Countess L IV where she is today in 1986. it was a big project. I also put the Road Marker from Gen Patton in from of BLD 1 and next to the Parade Grounds, and I was there the day Frank picked up the phone and had it shipped to the Post from France. I do not know if all the phone poles used as guard rails going up to bld 118 are still up. I did them also. My Father ran OMS 20 down at the bottom of the hill and then worked in shop A after he left there. Note To Editor only visible by Contributor and editor
