This Eerie And Fantastic Footage Takes You Inside Oregon’s Abandoned WWII Radar Station
During World War II, 16 million Americans served in the Armed Forces. While most of those brave men and women fought and served overseas, many Oregonians served right here, patrolling the coastline, and monitoring enemy communications. There are still several remnants of the war here on the Oregon Coast, including an abandoned WWII radar station at Cape Meares.
