Comments: I served in the Seabees from Sept, 1956 to Sept 1960. I attended "A" builders school in Port Hueneme 1957 assigned to MCB 10. I served on Guam 57,58 working on the Nimitz Hill Project constructing the swimming pool and the military housing development and built some bridges. I was in Adak in 58, working on the docks repairing piers and building dolphins, and back to Guam 59,60, working on the Naval Air Station Airstrip Project. I was a BUH2 in Charlie Co. If there are any Bees out there that served in MCB 10 during these times I would like to hear from you. Once a Seabee always a Seabee ! CAN DO!
I am proud to have served with our brother Seabees while in Vietnam, during & after the Tet Offensive of 1968. A CB Camp a few miles from us near DaNang helped us often, and without your assistance we would have all had an even tougher time an even tougher time of it while deployed. Thank you all for your service, and Welcome Home Brothers...Welcome Home! Semper Fidelis, & Can Do !!! Terry
Admin reply: ONE, TWO, THREE, FOUR.... WE LOVE THE MARINE CORPS!
Comments: Any Seabees out there that serves with NMCB 8, go to that web site and the SVA Facebook and you'll learn that our 2010 reunion will be held in Branson, Mo starting October 20th thru the 23rd. We would be very happy to renew old friendships and have a great time together. Don't wait until the last minute now! If you're a fleet sailor or a Marine that served with "the eightball" find a Seabee to help you fill out the forms!!!

Great website! VSO’s throughout the Nation tell us the U.S. Veteran Compensation Programs is a GREAT website as well. In fact, it is the website recommended by VSO’s around the world. Veterans who are actively pursuing a service-connected claim or seeking an increase in compensation visit U.S. Veteran Compensation Programs to learn how to file, who to see, where to go, what to do, and so much more. Visit it today!
Comments: Quoting Vice Admiral Ben Moreell, CEC, USN, the "Father of the Seabees, in "Can Do" by William Bradford Huie, a Chaplain of a Seabee battalion asked his crew, "What can we do to make you more content?" and the answer was: "Nothing. I got in this outfit to give, not to get." I'm sure every Seabee will remember the words of General Douglas MacArthur to Vice Admiral Moreell in February of 1944...."The only trouble with your Seabees is that you don't have enough of them!" God bless all Seabees, past present and future. You have a proud history and your accomplishments are plenty. Happy birthday to each and every single Seabee! CAN DO!!
