Comments: My grandpa, George P. Marks Sr. was in the 83rd Construction Battalion in the Philippines during WWII. He passed away in 1968. My father was very proud on my grandpa, and inspired myself and my two brothers to all join the U. S. Navy. We all served with great pride. My father passed away on March 24th, 2009---and we laid him to rest with a SeaBee hat, which was his favorite hat.
