In Dublin there were two different bases and a hospital nicknamed "Fleet City." Camp Parks was home to the Seabies during the war, Camp Shoemaker home to naval personnel. My dad was stationed here. During this time, there was a bus which would pick up the men (those who chose to do so) and take them to San Jose to work in the canning bus. My father went several times to work in the fruit. During the war, the labor supply was very depleted, and extra help was wanted wherever it could be found. The men enjoyed making a little extra money.
The final part of the "City" was the hospital. This took the general shape of a large X, but each part of the X was really several different buildings.
