30 April departure

- Arrive Kwajalein 27 May

28 May departure

- Arrive Kwajalein 24 June

25 June departure

"Departure" in table above means departure from the West coast ports of Oakland or LA. Surface shipment from point of origin must also be taken into account in planning for Kwajex shipments.
