Camp Murphy


Quite often Shep would mention being stationed in Florida, but never mentioned the name of the camp. Based on comments Shep made about the camp being located next to West Palm Beach, it appears that it must have been Camp Murphy now "Johnathon Dickinson State Park" According to the website two of the original buildings still stand. A top secret radar training facility, it was named for Col. William Herbert Murphy, an U.S. Army pioneer in electronic equipment and it operated from April 1942 until 1944.
