Navy Seabee Veterans of American - Guestbook





Comments:
I am lookin for information on my Great Uncle Stanley Wallace "Steamer" Simonson. I know that he enlisted in the Navy Seabees from 1968 to August 1984. He was an E7 at the time of retiremement. He did 2 tours in Vietnam. I have a list of all his medals and units he was assigned too. I am looking for Sea men who can tell me more about him. He passed away last December and never really told me in grave detail bout his military experiences. He is one of the reasons I joined the military and would like to know more about the man that I admired so much and honor him correctly for all he has done. Thank you.

October 1, 1943

Wilmer Lyons "6th Special NCB" is Killed while unloading LST 448 at Vella Lavella. 6th Special gun crew is credited with shooting down one plane.

At 0930 on 1 October, as LST's disgorged additional troops and supplies (including Lieutenant Colonel Victor H. Krulak's 2d Parachute Battalion, FMF), a large formation of enemy fighters and dive bombers again raided the American beaches. This time the Narowai beach area suffered heavily. Here two 500-pound bombs hit the LST 448 and set it afire. Others, dropping in dispersal areas and on defenses, caused many casualties among gun crews and working parties. Although the burning ship made the beach useless, and wounded men, wreckage and bursting bombs caused confusion, the well-led soldiers succeeded in shooting down one plane.

At 1000 the Japanese tried again. This time one bomb hit LST 334, still on the beach at Ruravai, causing light damage. At 1435 they struck a third time, now with 60 planes. But the combat air patrol was on station and only a few dive bombers penetrated the screen to lay another egg on the still burning LST 448. Finally at 1900 the fourth and last attack of the day destroyed five heavy trucks and three jeeps.
