From: St. Petersburg, Florida, USA
I created an amphibious force of Seabee's and a US Base Force - in mid 42 with supplies and built it up from Los Angeles. Built it to 2/2/2 Port Airfield / defense IIRC.
Nothing I paid PP on. Just some lower endurance xAPs and xAK that were not in any immediate plans. I seemed to have a lot of CBs and Base forces I had not yet earmarked for any location.
The units that spawned there (AA and Port Services ?) with the BF and CBs will eventually be pulled forward once I feel I need back filling bases for my Soloman's / NG campaign.
Nomea I think once I am confident the front has moved far enough to be secure.
However I like the historical flow of this game.
In World War II the United States chose Bora Bora as a South Pacific military supply base, and an oil depot, airstrip, seaplane base, and defensive fortifications were constructed. Known as "Operation Bobcat", it maintained a supply force of nine ships, 20,000 tons of equipment and nearly 7,000 men. Seven artillery guns were set up at strategic points around the island to protect it against potential military attack.
However, the island saw no combat as the American presence on Bora Bora went uncontested over the course of the war. The base was officially closed on June 2, 1946.
At least in some scenarios you get a tiny engineer unit that comes in before the Seabees start rolling in that is called the Bobcat unit.
Few players probably ever send it to its historically intended location though.
