Comments: WWII Tarawa Sea Bee Veterans I am looking to make contact with any Sea Bees who took part in the 1943 Tarawa operation(including anyone who served in the 18th Marines). I am also interested in hearing from any Seabees who were there on Tarawa after the battle who worked on the air strip or island's clean-up and reconstruction. If you were there and would like to help me with my research - please feel free to email me firstname.lastname@example.org
Comments: Wishing all Seabees past and present a very Merry Christmas. Served in MCB10 Delta Co. Panama, Antigua, Puerto Rico, Diego Garcia, and Guam '72-'75, NAS Barber's Pt., HI '76-'79. Glad to see Oscar Muro and Tony Baca in the guestbook.
Comments: A Vietnam buddy of mine gave me two Seabee 25th Anniversary medallions back in 1967. I have never seen them in any publication nor have I ever found them on the Internet. They are both 3.0 inches in diameter. The silver one weighs 10 oz. and the bronze weighs 8 oz. Can anyone tell me about them? There is a picture of them on my web site, above.
Comments: I am the daughter of a former Navy Seabee from the late 1960's -early 1970's. I was looking on the web for information about others that my father might reunite with someday. He was stationed in Puerto Rico and has visited there once many years ago and was so surprised by the changes.
Comments: I'm the daughter of a former Navy Seabee cook who served in WWII. I'm trying to locate any other seabees who served in 1944-46 who might know my dad. His name is Louis Soucy, but is known as Red Soucy, also from Saco, Maine. I know he'd love to hear from anyone with whom he served. He's very active in the American Legion and relates his memories of his Navy days with pride, honor, and respect. If you know Red, please contact me at email@example.com. Thank you.
I know there were approximately seven hundred Seabees which served with MCB-12 in Vietnam. I am trying to find information in regards to my father Albert S. Hughes. He served with MCB-12 Alpha Company. The only information I have on his service is he spent time in Gulfport, Mississippi around September 1968 after a tour after a tour in Vietnam (at which time I was conceived). He then returned to Vietnam. He also served on Marble Mtn. to dig-in a tank battalion, survived an attack on his deuce an 1/2, and his team was rescued by the Chinook helicopter squadron. I am trying to locate any information, pictures, or any Seabees, Marines, or whoever might have known him.
Happy holidays to all. I wish you and your families a Happy New Year.
Bruce Hughes HM 1988-1993 San Diego, Camp Lejeune, Sasabo Japan
