Comments: I am helping my dad, Steve Rennig, look for fellow Seabees who where stationed in Souda Bay, Crete (Greece). He worked in the Public Works Division 1971-1972, but never made it into a Battalion. If you where there or know someone who may have been there, please contact me!
Comments: I'm a reservist with NMCB21 still serving @ 21 years. My battalions that I have served with are RMCB13, NMCB7, NMCB1, NMCB133, NMCB21. I'm also the second generation of SEEMAN to serve in the Seabees. My father SW1 SEEMAN, CHARLES served with RMCB19 and RMCB13. Life time member of NSVA.
Comments: Seabees and particularly past members of NMCB-8 lost a great Skipper on August 3, 2009. Capt. John (Jack) O'Leary past away following his brave battle against pancreatic cancer. He was 77 years old and leaves his wonderful wife Emily and daughter Denise, and grandchildren Matthew and Christina. I was, and I'm sure those others that served with with him, were very proud to have known and followed such a leader. He was instrumental in my desire to remain in the service and make it my career. NMCB-8 was a great outfit, and Captain O'Leary was a great officer and Commanding Officer. He will be missed, but never forgotten.
