For All Hands. A mobile Chemical Warfare unit was sent out from the District Coast Guard Office to all Coast Guard Stations and actual gas tests were made during the instruction. The District Training program included rifle practice for all personnel assigned to light stations; this was in addition to training received at "boot" camp or specialized schools.

The Light Stations did not all return to their former peacetime status. Many of the innovations of the war were retained at the stations. RADAR beacons had been established at 4 stations; additional Kohler units had been installed; commerical power had been run into many stations. The war had left its mark - to most of the Light Stations' advantage.
