Through his lifetime, K. E. Hallikainen (Hal) gathered many documents. I intend to
to archive many of these documents on this site. This will be an ongoing project, so
please check back now and then. In addition, I look forward to any comments I can add
to the site. Please send comments to

Reserve Ensign named K. E. Hallikainen came up with the idea for the Mobile Degaussing Unit, a ship that
degaussed (or demagnetized) other ships so they would not trigger magnetic mines.
