Comments: Hope someone can assist from this organisation,
My grandfather past some years back and I have discovered a "seabees" box that he had obviously accepted as a memento from someone he was close too during WW2. There are the several names on the inside with CBMU-552 listed at the bottom of the names. I am located in Australia and would like to make sure the box is returned to its family in America? Hope someone can put me in contact with the right people as the embassy did not help at all.
Age 92 went to be with his Lord on February 8, 2010.
A WWII Navy Sea Bee veteran and later retiring from The DuPont, Newport, DE plant after 40 years of service.
Survived by his loving wife of 36 years, Mary B; son Marshall; daughters, Susan Bell, Sandy McCutcheon and Sudeep Biddle and families. Visitation, February 13, 2010 from 11-2pm followed by services at 2pm at Coral Ridge Funeral Home, Cape Coral, FL.

Comments: Greetings from the left coast. I am a retired EACS(SCW) with the USNR. My last command was with NMCB-18, in Ft. Lewis Washington. I just found this site and just wanted to say Howdy to all my fellow Seabee Chiefs.
Comments: I started my US Navy Seabbe career in 1988 with RNMCB 12. Just tryi ng to locate any RNMCB 12 members specifically from the New Bedford, MA Det during the period of 1988 to 1990. Also, I have been trying to locate a RNMCB 12 coin for the past 15 years. If anyone can assit me it would be appreciated.
