My father, Joseph Fallon, from Philadelphia, PA was a Seebee during WWII in the pacific. He never spoke of hisparticipation in the war even though he took us to every war movie ever made and made sure that we had a knowledge of the WWII historical period.

He was proud to serve but never discussed it with his children.
My dad passed away in 1973.

As I become older, I realize how much I want to know something about his service so that I can pass it on to my children.

Seabees: Was in MCB-9 from December 1959 until September of 1963. Okinawa, Midway, Adak. Any of you niners still out there? I'd like to hear from you. Hey! Galen Butts, give me a shout. I believe they called you 'bido' didn't they? I saw your name on a seabee website not long ago but couldn't get in touch.

Fellow Seabees,
I was in the Bees Dec. 67 to 71. Boot at the Great Lakes , construction school , Davisville RI. From there to NSA Danang, and two years at Lemoor, Naval air Station California, CBMU 302.
Looking for Bob Craycraft. a builder and our company photographer at Camron Bay. lost track of him in 1968, when I transferred to NSA Danang, Hospital. I believe he was from North Carolina.
John Cammer from New York State. I lost track of him after Lemoor in 1971. and Jim Arnet from Texas, last seen in 1971, Lemoor.

Guys,I hope your well and sure would like to hear from you.

Greetings from Tacoma, Washington. My grandfather, Fred A. Adler, was a Seabee in the 58th United States Naval Construction Battalion and fought in WWII and the Korean War. Grandpa was part of the waves of Seabees that landed on Vela La Vela, Banika (Russell Islands), Los Negros (Admiralty Islands), Viti Levu and Vunda Point (Fiji Islands). I am looking for information and photographs about his service. I am also very interested in obtaining a copy of the cruise book of the USS John Penn.

Grandpa (Fred A. Adler) passed away in 1989. His wife (Mildred) passed away in 2005. This past Thanksgiving, I was entrusted with my grandfather’s photo album which is full of photos from WWII and the Korean War. The album includes hundreds of photos of my grandfather, men in the 58th battalion, their projects, and lives as Seabees. I also have a written summary of his experiences as told to his daughter in 1957.

I am going to digitally scan the photographs and send copies to the Seabee Museum and would also like to make them available to other organizations who honor Seabee history. Are there any Web sites with archived photos from the 58th Battalion? I am sure that the sons, brothers and fathers of others are captured in many of the photos now in my possession. I would also like to see if I can locate other photos of my grandfather.

After reviewing the pictures in the photo album, I cannot help but feel incredibly proud of my grandfather and of the sacrifice that he and his comrades made during a very tumultuous period.

Thank you for your consideration.

Best regards,

Fred A. Castro-Diaz, grandson of Fred A. Adler, 58th United States Naval Construction Battalion
