Below here is some information found online about Camp Parks, California
"Commissioned on January 19, 1943 as the Construction Battalion Replacement Depot, Camp Parks functioned as home for Seabees returning from the Pacific Theater of Operations. Battalions returned to the States after a year or more of arduous construction duty. They came to Camp Parks for medical treatment, military training and reorganization. The base housed up to 20 battalions at a time. Most battalions prepared for a second tour in the Pacific. Many Seabees were hospitalized, and those no longer fit for duty received their discharge. After leave, personnel were subjected to a rigorous training schedule. The battalions were brought back up to fighting strength."
To judge the sizes the playing cards measure 2-1/4'' x 3-1/2''. The green deck is in mint unused condition. The gold deck is in good condition with some wear from use. The box has some wear as well.
