ATTU ISLAND, February 1944. This photo was taken from an altitude of 6,000 feet. The fellows who were at Attu during the winter know that there are very few days that would allow a photograph such as this. This is Massacre Bay in the foreground, Gehres point, then Casco Cove. The PT boat base was the the outer entrance to Casco Cove, the squadron administrative huts and living quarters were to the left of the long runway. Hangers, revetments, ammunition storage were mainly to the right of the long runway. Construction started just about this time on Gehres Point for the barn that was to house the famous cow brought in by Commodore Leslie E. Gehres. Photo was supplied to the group by Pat Patteson, VPB135, Danville, Calif. Submitted by Don Stobbs
