William Orr age 30 _________________________

Even before the agreement for U.S. use of Lajes Field, military planners always had thought about another site in the Azores to construct an air base. One such site considered was Santa Maria Island. In June 1944, Premier Salazar granted the use of Santa Maria Island to US under the strictest secrecy. On 4 August 1944, the 1391st Army Air Force Base unit was activated at Santa Maria. Construction of what would become known as one of the best overseas facilities in Air Transport Command started in September 1944. A civilian construction company under direction of Army Corps of Engineers undertook what was called project 111. To uphold the base's secrecy and for diplomatic purposes Pan American Airlines fronted the construction of Santa Maria Air Base for the US Army Air Force. The base along with the three A shaped runways were completed on 15 May 1945. Movement of Air Transport Command operations to Santa Maria from Lajes Field commenced in April 1945.

On 16 April 1945, a new wing was created called the Central Atlantic Wing of the North Atlantic Division under Air Transport Command. Brig Gen. A. D. Smith became its commander. This Wing included all installations, bases and facilities used by Air Transport Command in the Azores. The 1391st Army Air Force Base Unit was discontinued and was redesignated as Headquarters, Central Atlantic Wing at Santa Maria Army Air Base. The new field replaced Lajes as the main base for passenger and cargo planes routed through the Azores, although U.S. operations at Lajes Field never ceased. Santa Maria's tactical value was limited because the war in Europe ended a week before the field was completed. However, operations began in time for the new base to play a highly important role in troop redeployment and the evacuation of wounded soldiers.

Arrival line 27 - NYC from Santa Maria, Azores 30 Dec 1944 - New York, New York - Age: 34

The end of the war in Europe brought about a rapid demobilization of troops and equipment from Europe. With the war over, the post European operations mission of the two Azorean bases became known. Santa Maria would serve the enormous number of transport aircraft moving passengers and cargo back to the United States. The Green Project, as it was called, moved over 50,000 veterans of the war back home through Santa Maria.

Camp Fannin From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia Camp Fannin Tyler, Texas Type Military Base Site information Controlled by 1943–1946: United States Army Site history Built 1943 In use 1943–1946

Camp Fannin was a U.S. Army Infantry Replacement Training Center and prisoner-of-war camp located near Tyler, Texas. It was opened in 1943 and only operated for four years, before closing in 1946. It is credited with training over 200,000 U.S. Soldiers, sometimes as many as 40,000 at one given time.

Originally planned as a U.S. Army Air Corps station, Camp Fannin was established in the spring of 1943, the camp was named for Col. James Walker Fannin, a Texas Revolutionary War hero, who died at Goliad. The original plan moved to Pounds Army Air Field (Now Tyler Pounds Regional Airport.)

The camp served as a German POW camp during WWII. Two attempted escape, but were quickly captured.[1]

The area where Camp Fannin existed was returned to non-military use during 1946. A section of the land was handed over to the state of Texas, where the once military hospital was transformed to the East Texas Tuberculosis Santorium, later the University of Texas Health Center at Tyler. Other buildings were sold to commercial and development companies. Many buildings still stand today, most of which are used as location for business and warehouses. A memorial, paid for the Camp Fannin Association, stands at the UT Health Center at Tyler.
