Comments: Annual Navy Seabee Memorial Service at Arlington
On Saturday morning March 13, 2010 a memorial service will be held at 11:00 am at the Navy Seabee Memorial at the entrance to Arlington Cemetery. For those staying at the hotel, the Metro is a very convenient way to travel to the Cemetery. The Arlington Cemetery stop is about 100 yards from the memorial. Everyone is invited to attend. This is the annual Memorial Service, wreath laying and comments by those in attendance to the gathered Seabees and Visitors. I would appreciate this information going out to as many people as possible, and in particular those that may be able to attend from the Washington, DC area. I have sent notices out to all SVA District Commanders, and The NSVA.org web site has a blog to be utilized by our Brothers and Sisters.
Thanks for all who are able to help get the word out.
Jerry Landcastle SVA North West District Commander

If you can assist Dona, please contact her at 305-547-4716.
Comments: 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.
