beirutvet: No sir, nothing I need, thank you though. I just love seeing photos of my favorite island. Anything new/out of the ordinary there? ownership/stewardship should of changed hands by now, correct? How is the place fairing? Interested in your observations Apr 26, 2015 3:03:51 GMT 8
batteryboy: Place is the same, run by same management. Some areas cleaned, some areas like going Wheeler and Cheney a little overgrown but passable except for some fallen trees. Monkeys are near the hotel now. Apr 26, 2015 8:58:27 GMT 8

1Pinoy: I am very glad that there is a written material about Sternberg US Army Hospital. I was fortunate to be born in that hospital on July 22, 1933, and still living today in America! Dad took the whole family to US on Aug. 1950 to Camp Campbell, KY. May 15, 2015 21:02:00 GMT 8

Val: This must have been before March 10, 1945, or shortly thereafter, as there was an order that day by the Americans to switch the sides of the street for all the road vehicles. Up to that point, the roads were driven on the LHS, as shown in the above photo. May 28, 2015 2:41:08 GMT 8
