Re: Location, Yankee Station

Sort of offtopic here but was Tim Boyle stationed in North SAR? Im getting confused over this because right before Bob Watkin left for his R&R, he told Boyle that Watkins was going to be stationed on North SAR. So which route was Boyle stationed on?

Can't wait until SP4 releases!
