THOSE WHO ALSO SERVED
The Civilian Construction Men of Wake Island

--------------------------------------------------------------------------------------
These are the men that history almost forgot.

In 1941, more than 1,100 civilian men ventured 4,000 miles across the Pacific to desolate Wake Island to build a U.S. Navy base.  Just hours after Pearl Harbor was bombed, Wake Island was attacked and these men were thrust into the forefront of the war in the Pacific.
