Comments: I am seeking information about my Dad, Frank R. Robinson. He joined the Navy just after Pearl Harbor. He served as a CB until about 44 to 45. He passed away 18 years ago and he didn't like to talk about the war, so we didn't learn much about where he served or what ship he was on. If anyone could offer any info about him it would be nice to pass some information on to the Grandkids.
Comments: Greetings Bees, from the beautifully desolate windy plains of western Kansas. Sugar Bear here, MCB One from 1974 to 1977. Davisville, Rota, La Maddelena, Gulfport, Okinawa, and Puerto Rico. I got on here late last night (insomniac) and found a couple of people I recognized. I sent some emails, and was wakened this morning by a friend I had not heard from in about 35 years, asking me to unplug his toilet in Oregon. (I operate a home maintenance company, Dad"ll Do It!) We had a great visit. You all know it, but as time goes on we lose track of people who were our whole world for a short time. This site will help me to find some of them. If you knew me then, contact me now! Can Do!
Comments: My grandfather and my uncle were both Seabees in the Pacific campaign during WW2. My Grandfather was too old for combat and my uncle was color blind. The Seabees game them both, a way to serve and contribute to the war effort. Both were at Guam among other stations.

Comments: We love this website. It has been very helpful for our members. Also, our members tell us that our website is the best place for veterans to find information about compensation, pension and benefits for veterans. We have been told that VSOs now recommend that veterans visit our website first before filing a claim. Veterans learn about the process, who to see, where to go, and how to maximize their disability claims. Visit today!
Comments: *******First Female Seabee******* I am looking for information about the first female seabee. I've found reference to her on several different websites but her name is never mentioned. It was 1972, she crossed over from the fleet. Any information is greatly appreciated.
