Comments: My late uncle Art Mazzuchi served in 51 Seabees 1942/43? to 1945/46. Trained in Alaska for duty on Ulithi Atoll in the Marianas.I have some good pictures of both areas and some of the Seabees he served with. Is there a Chapter at Port Hueneme still or a museum I can donate them too. Also numerous pics of B-29 nose art for a museum or collector.Taken on Ulithi.

Comments: served with MCB 1 in Gitmo 3/55 until June 1956, this tour include trips back to Davisville a couple of times.We were building houses for Brown Beggars in Gitmo. In June I was transferred to Task Force 43 then in Sept transferred to MCB7. With MCB7 I went to Barbados in Dec to help build a Loran station and was in Barbados until Sept '57 at which time I was sent to Newport RI for discharge. Being in the Navy and the Seabees was a great adventure
