Comments: I would also like to pass this info along in case anyone knew him. My Uncle just recently passed away and he was in the Navy. His name was Charles (Sonny) Buivid and he lived in Danvers Mass he was 78 years of age.
Comments: Hello, My father who pasted away was a seabee and I don't know much about what he did. I am trying to find any information I can so if anyone can help it would be much appreciated. Here's what I know, My fathers name was Francis John Larsen, He was born around 1919 he lived in Mass. I know he lived in Oregon for a period of time and I believe this is when he was serving for the SeaBees. I think he would have been serving during ww2. Does anyone know how to check names in archives or how to get his military record. Thanks ahead of time for help given!
Comments: I spent from Aug. 72-Nov 74 as a SEABEE. After A school, I spent a year in Guantanamo Bay, Cuba. Had lots of friends there. Hatfield, Mills, Scadden, Klien. There were others but time has erased a lot of the names. After GITMO, I went to RI to NMCB-1. From there I spent my 8 month deployment in Holy Loch and Edzell Scotland. It was also enjoyable as I was able to meet my mothers family. She was a WW2 war bride. Remember people there, Malo, Wilson, Nabis, Brock, Maybe some of these peole are in this guest book. This is an awsome site for SEABEES. Glad I came across it. My gain!
