"The Amphibious Force, early in this war, set up a storage and repair shop for small landing boats, designated at the Naval Landing Force Equipment Depot.  It started in Building 138 at the Naval Operating Base, but as boats poured in from many shipyards, more and more space was needed, so the Navy bought the 'Ford Plant' in Newton Park, Norfolk, and the activity moved here in January, 1943."

This picture below shows the stain I described above, and also shows a checkmark in the biographies section:
