Comments: From the Rileys' to all of our military heros, past and present, and especially to our Seabees, may you all have a very Merry Christmas and the happiest of New years. May God bless our troops and keep you all safe in the palm of His hand. We are richly blessed to live in a free country. Love to all...Chuck, Karen and family.
Comments: My nephew Christopher is trying to enlist in the Seabees which makes me proud beyond words, having lived in Annapolis, MD for many years and having made many amazing friends at the United States Naval Academy. As a 4th generation builder, he displays all the finest qualities of a young man and those of my many amazing Navy friends. He was even featured in a recent news article, having received an award for a building project he did for his vo-tech school following high school graduation last year, so he is definitely following a long family tradition of building excellence and has had a longstanding interest in construction and construction equipment.
Due to childhood allergies which have long since subsided, his recruiter informed him that he needed medical documentation from his doctor that the allergies are no longer an issue, but his acceptance seems to have been unduly delayed in spite of his being in excellent physical shape and always having had high marks in school.
If any former or present Seabees in the New Jersey shore area (Ocean & Monmouth Counties) or anywhere can make any suggestions as to what steps might be taken to encourage his acceptance, they would be greatly appreciated. I wouldn't want the Seabees to miss out on this outstanding young man who wants more than anything to join your ranks.
A blessed holiday season and New Year to Seabees and their families everywhere, past, present and future, thanks for your help and above all else, THANK YOU FOR YOUR SERVICE!

Comments: Just wanted to say Hello to anyone that was with 3rd NCB satationes in Danang East from November 1967 to November 1968.
Comments: I had the chance to be a foreign student at NCTC in 1994; and a second chance to graduated from CECOS in 1999. That short experience at Port Hueneme has been one of the most singular I ever had; I am really proud to have that singular oportunity and always remember and think about everybody I met. By that time I was a junior architect but because of that I became a Facilities Manager; thanks SEABEES. ¡CAN DO!

Comments: I have a bunch of photos of my uncle, Master Chief Cornelius Breslin who was with the 67th Seabees at Tinian. I have worn his 67th Seabee ring since his death in 1980. If there is anyone out there who had relatives (or even living members) of the 67th, I have photos that I'm sure they would be interested in seeing and I would be hapyy to send copies to anyone.
