    As a Naval Photographer attached to MCB 8

(Mobile Construction Battalion Eight) I had the

opportunity to document with pictures the

accomplishments and a bit of history while stationed

at the bottom of the Earth, Antarctica. I thought it

time after fifty years to let out some of my photos.

   On the morning of November 26th 1962  while

drinking hot cocoa and listening to Pasty Cline down

in the chow hall, Moose Marino came down and ask if

I would bring my camera equipment up topside because

we are going to have a football game. I looked at him in

a strange way, but up topside we went. The rest

is history.
