Comments: I ran across this web sight by accident, and I truly love it. My husband was a seabee for 20yrs. He was a PROUD one too, as I think they all should be. If not for the seabees, how would the troops get ANYwhere. If anyone out there ever served with him, Bruce V. DeWees, ret.cpo, I would love to hear from you. Anyone out there that served in deep freeze '64,Mcmurdo bay, antartica, let me hear from you. I can be reached at firstname.lastname@example.org. Thank you all, and God Bless.
Admin reply: By the by, I am not a former seabee, my husband was. But I still loved the sight. Thanks for getting back to me so soon.
