Comments: Hi I was Sea Bee in the viet nam time, I was in MCB 10 . I served From 66-69. I was there in1968 tet offensive and also when Hamberger Hill was going on, Lost a lot of friend at that time. I have not forgotten those times both good and bad . I feel fortunate to be alive today , 68 was a real bad time. I hope the rest of you are doing well and are far from harm. Jim

Comments: Hi Professor! I have the original sheet music "The Song of the Seabees". Yes, the lyrics were written by Sam E. Lewis and the music was by Peter De Rose. It was copyrighted in 1942 by the United States Navy, Bureau of Yards and Docks and all rights other than for printed copy distribution were reserved by Robbins Music Corporation, 799 Seventh Avenue., Ny, NY. The song also has a secured International Copyright. I have tried to get information on the Robbins Music Corporation, but so far, no luck. For your information, The Song of the Seabees isa the only U.S. Military song ever nominated for an Academy Award. I'll keep searching for more info, but I would imagine NAVFAC could get permission for you to use the music. Hope this has been of some value to you. God bless!
Comments: I am trying to get permission to publish the lyrics of "The Song of the Seabees" by Sam M. Lewis for a book on Naval Academy monuments that includes a passage on Admiral Moreell. Any suggestions? Thanks! Prof. Nancy Arbuthnot, US Naval Academy
Comments: Served in MCB-9 from the end of 1959 until the summer of 1963, was transferred to ACB-1 for duty and discharge in September of 1963. Once a Seabee, always a seabee I guess. Can do! Jerry Decius.

Comments: I just recently promoted to CPO while my son (SR Richard Miller) was at RTC Great Lakes. I was honored to have him pin on my anchors. He has since graduated and is now attending Builder A School in Gulfport. Hoo Rah SEABEES!
Comments: My dad was a navy Seabee and was deployed to Vietnam sometime 1968-1969 - he was there the first 2 years of my life. He rarely if ever talked about his service. I am trying desperately to find out some information about his patriotic service and journey. If you knew, Johnny Leon Chavis, please contact me. I don't know what unit, etc he served in. He passed away a few years ago.
