XIII. WORLD WAR II (continued)


World War II occurred a generation ago. It is now a part of our heritage and, because of the large numbers of veterans and their families, sites associated with it possess high visitor interest. Redwood National Park is closely identified with the Japanese submarine offensive in December 1941 and September and October 1942, and the free balloon assaults of the last year of the war.

It is therefore recommended that the World War II observation station on the cliff, south of the Klamath, be restored and employed to interpret the aforementioned activities, and the successful efforts of the United States to cope with these threats. To insure an accurate restoration, Historic Structures Reports should be programmed for the observation station. The structures constituting the observation station will be included on the List of Classified Structures.
