Famous WW2 Quote"With Germany arming at breakneck speed, England lost in a pacifist dream, France corrupt and torn by dissension, America remote and indifferent... do you not tremble for your children?"
Winston Churchill, 1935

The office of Fleet Commander Admiral Husband E. Kimmel was in the upper left corner of the headquarters buildingâ€™s top floor. Troop transport USS Wharton is in right foreground. Among the submarines at the submarine piers are USS Tuna, USS Gudgeon, USS Argonaut, USS Narwhal, USS Triton, and USS Dolphin. Submarine tender USS Holland and patrol gunboat USS Niagara are alongside the wharf beside the headquarters building. Beyond the Holland is the Kuahua Peninsula with the Supply Depot and beyond that is the East Loch. In the distance (nearest group in upper left) are the battleship USS Nevada, at far left, general stores cargo ship USS Castor, and the derelict former minelayer Baltimore, in use as an ammunition scow. Cruisers in top center are USS Minneapolis, closest to camera, and USS Pensacola.
