Comments: To the crew of CBMU-302: Our 2009 reunion is now set. We've meeting at the Howard Johnson Hotel, Branson, MO Oct. 2-4, 2009. I started sending out the registrations on 2/4/09 and had 6 confirmations from the guys by that night! This reunion is going to set a record. What's that? You want to come too? Anyone who served in CBMU-302 is welcome as well as our former unit, the 302nd NCB in WWII. CAN DO! Dave Schill, President, CBMU-302 Association.

Comments: I am trying to locate any surviving shipmates of my late father, John Archibald Letteney, who served as a Seabee warrant officer in WW II. He went through basic at Great Lakes early in 1942, was at Dutch Harbor at the time of the Battle of Midway, and later served in the Pacific and at the Treasure Island Naval Base in San Francisco. I'm not sure which Seabee battalion or battalions he served with. Dad claimed to have been a member of the party that found the intact Zero that flipped over in a marsh near Dutch Harbor during the June 1942 attack. Dad was discharged in early 1947. He passed away in August of 1971. Any recollections of my father or information regarding his wartime service would be welcomed.
Comments: My grandfather served in the 21st construction battalion during wwll. His name was Fedele Sciarra. I have the cruise book for this battalion but dont know exactly what he did. He was a carpenter all his life but he would never speak about his experience during the war. If anyone has info about this battalion please let me know.
