Camp Fuji 1960

Paul,

I was in Mike battery on that Dec. in Fuji . We used a duece and a half to hall the guys to Gotimba. Were you at the beach when we unloaded the powder and rounds for the 05 and 55? The crane on deck started to slide sideways right into the powder bags and all the old war vets on the beach hit the sand before the thing stopped sliding. I had no idea at that time, but it was a instinct reaction on their part as I stood there with my hands in my pocket.
