The Boston returned to San Pedro (CA) for repairs and upgrades in March 1945.  San Pedro, as referred to by the men, was a town and harbor adjacent to the growing Los Angeles Harbor and adjacent Terminal Island – the center point of the Los Angeles and Long Beach Harbor complexes (now the Port of Los Angeles.)  This was an important Navy facility during the War.
