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

This was e-mailed to me. Sounds like a great way to really make change!

Congressional Reform Act of 2010


1. Term Limits: 12 years only, one of the possible options below.

A. Two Six year Senate terms
B.. Six Two year House terms
C. One Six year Senate term and three Two Year House terms

Serving in Congress is an honor, not a career. The Founding Fathers envisioned citizen legislators, serve your term(s), then go home and back to work.




2. No Tenure / No Pension:

A congressman collects a salary while in office and receives no pay when they are out of office.

Serving in Congress is an honor, not a career. The Founding Fathers envisioned citizen legislators, serve your term(s), then go home and back to work.




3. Congress (past, present & future) participates in Social Security:

All funds in the Congressional retirement fund moves to the Social Security system immediately. All future funds flow into the Social Security system, Congress participates with the American people.

Serving in Congress is an honor, not a career. The Founding Fathers envisioned citizen legislators, server your term(s), then go home and back to work.




4. Congress can purchase their own retirement plan just as all Americans.

Serving in Congress is an honor, not a career. The Founding Fathers envisioned citizen legislators, serve your term(s), then go home and back to work.




5. Congress will no longer vote themselves a pay raise. Congressional pay will rise by the lower of CPI or 3%.

Serving in Congress is an honor, not a career. The Founding Fathers envisioned citizen legislators, serve your term(s), then go home and back to work.





6. Congress looses their current health care system and participates in the same health care system as the American people.

Serving in Congress is an honor, not a career. The Founding Fathers envisioned citizen legislators, serve your term(s), then go home and back to work.




7. Congress must equally abide in all laws they impose on the American people.

Serving in Congress is an honor, not a career. The Founding Fathers envisioned citizen legislators, serve your term(s), then go home and back to work.




8. All contracts with past and present congressmen are void effective 1/1/11.

The American people did not make this contract with congressmen, congressmen made all these contracts for themselves.

Serving in Congress is an honor, not a career. The Founding Fathers envisioned citizen legislators, serve your term(s), then go home and back to work.

Read and heed! Don't let the benefits be whittled away by a bunch on crooked politicians. MakeReconciliation of HR 3590, the Patient Protection and Affordable Care Act

Reconciliation of the Patient Protection and Affordable Care Act Take Action!

House and Senate Versions Must be Reconciled

On the morning of 24 December, the Senate barely passed HR 3590, "The Patient Protection and Affordable Care Act" by a party line 60-39 vote.


This passage runs contrary to the sentiments of the American People who, regardless of which national poll you consider, are almost 2/3 against this legislation.


One of the major omissions of this legislation is that it makes no provision to expressly protect Veterans Affairs and Department of Defense health-care from the provisions of this legislation. Such protection would fulfill President Obama's promise last August that neither program would "be affected by our efforts at broader health-care reform."

As this legislation must be reconciled with the House version, speak now to protect your hard earned access to the promised life time health care offered when you first entered service by sending an editable message to your Representative.


your voice be heard.

It is with my deepest regret that I pass along the passing of my Father. SWCS William E. Palmer, RET. He passed on 21 Dec 09 at the age of 67. He fought a long hard courageous battle with cancer. He retired from the Navy in Oct-Nov 89. During his career he served with NMCB-74 (Vietnam), Operation Deep Freeze, NMCB-1, NMCB-133, as the COMCBLANT Safety Chief, a recruiter, and I believe NMCB-7. He will be interned at Arlington National Cemetary next month.

He liked the Navy but he LOVED the Seabees. His service brought him much joy and an enormous amount of pride. Take care and stay safe.

Mark
