As a mark of gratitude the US built a hospital for the community after the war. The main employer in St Lawrence was the fluorspar mines in the area. The miners were working in appaling conditions and dust and radon gas would over the years mean that many of the miners would die prematurely, some in the hospital built for the community.
This is Chambers Cove where the USS Thruxtun ran aground.
