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.

Comments: Are there any good Veteran Service Officers (VSO) out there? We think so. In fact, we have a growing directory of VSOs nominated by veterans. These VSOs have demonstrated excellence in helping veterans secure service-connected claims and increase ratings. They return phone calls too. If you need a good VSO in your area visit our web site.
Keep up the good work on this site. As stated previously, we added it to our monthly newsletter as a resource for all veterans. Thanks!
Comments: I was a rated Storekeeper with the MCB7 during 1954 and 1955. Made both trips from Davisville, R.I. during that time. May - Dec 1954 we went to Port Lyautey and Feb - Oct 1955 to Argentia. Although I was just part of the support group I always felt that I was a SEABEE. In fact, I still do. I am one of those that has a Seabee sticker on my truck. Since I live in Massachusetts I find it easy to visit the museum down in Davisville (been there twice and will be going down again come spring.) Any one that was in at the times I mentioned, especially anyone from the Supply Office, I would be glad to hear from.
