Indonesia--Where Memories and T-shirts Abound!

Greg Babinski, finance and marketing manager, King County GIS Center, Washington, says, “En route to Australia, I stopped in Indonesia. From Jakarta, I made my way via Makasar and Ternate (by air), then by ferry and bus from Ternate, across Halmehera Island, then by ferry to Morotai, where my father had been stationed in late 1944 and 1945 as a ball turret gunner on a B24 bomber in the Thirteenth US Army Air Force. Of course, I brought my Esri Sports t-shirt. Here I’m on the grounds of the Indonesian Air Force Base that had been the USAAF Pitoe Field during WWII.”
