  1. This article about Johnston Atoll is pure bullshit. The Navy did not have any personnel stationed there in 1999. I was there from ’96 to ’97. The USAF had command of the Island until 2004.

  2. I remember landing on Johnston Island when I was in the navy during the Korean War. We were in a small group of men on our way to Atsugi Naval Air Station in Japan assigned on TAD to make wiring changes in various types of combat planes for new communication radios. We were passengers in a Marine DC-6 and made stops in Hawaii, Johnston, Kwajelin(sp) and Guam. Every time we landed the plane required some repairs.

  3. I was on Johnston Island from 89 to 90 all 4 branch`s of the Military Navy had maybe 10 personnel, Marines 12 they worked with the Navy, Air Force about 30, Army 1 full Company Chemical personnel and 1 Full Comany Army Military Police it was are job to Hold the Island there was no Shore Patrol it would Have been Army MP`s IPAT as we called them “Island Patrol, we met every plane and supply ship that came in, there were approx 900 to 1000 civilians on the Island that ran the Jacads Plant, Chow halls, etc, and if you didn`t have the correct clearance you did not get off a plane or ship, thosse were the orders, to be met with Deadly Force.
