what i understood is that most of the base was constructed during ww2, but maybe i read it wrong.<br><br>basically, if it was built after 1933 then theres no doubt in my mind. theres no way to tell if it was before or ater the 'nazi debut,' but like another poster said, yeah, the architect knew it was a swastika. <p></p><i></i>

The Seal told me it was built as a joke that no one noticed till afterwards.<br><br>I didn't buy that one.<br><br>He also told me it's a post-WWII building. <p>____________________<br>Oderint, dum metuant</p><i></i>

I saw it on another forum as i said earlier. Someone did some digging and posted a link, basically the building was finished in 1919. However I dunno about that. I never checked the link.<br><br>And it was on GLP.<br><br>So its probably wrong.<!--EZCODE EMOTICON START ;) --><img src=http://www.ezboard.com/images/emoticons/wink.gif ALT=";)"><!--EZCODE EMOTICON END--> <p></p><i></i>

history

Postby smithtalk » Tue Jul 18, 2006 4:01 am

In June of 1943, the Secretary of the Navy authorized the establishment of the Amphibious Training Base in the San Diego area to meet wartimes demands for trained landing craft crews. These crews were deployed to the South Pacific area of operations, where their successful and historical efforts were contributory to the conclusion of World War II. The streets of the base bear the names of those famous battles which led to the defeat of the Japanese Empire: Guadalcanal, Tarawa, Tulagi, and Bougainville, to name a few.<br><br>In 1946, the base was renamed Naval Amphibious Base (NAB) Coronado and its primary mission was changed to that of providing major administrative and logistical support to the amphibious units which are located on the base. The base also conducts research and tests of newly developed amphibious equipment.<br><br>The property itself was formed by land-fill, dredged from the bottom of the San Diego Bay. Even today the water table is but a few feet below the surface. The base has remained in an active, operational status since its initial establishment. In 1952, a military construction program was begun to replace some of the World War II "temporary" buildings and, in 1989, a comprehensive master plan outlined the future development of the base. <p></p><i></i>
