Comments: I am a graduate student trying to learn more about WWII Seabees who put their construction skills to civilian use during the postwar decades (e.g., building suburbs, highways, or urban renewal projects). If you are such a veteran, or could tell me more about one, I would greatly appreciate the chance to speak with you. Thank you for your help!
Comments: Flashback: With MCB4 in '73. I just remembered Kenny Ha and myself jogging to the Chinese camp, eating, drinking their booze, giving them our cigerettes (we didn't smoke), teaching them English. Then the Supervisor (aka "the General" driving us back to our hooch in a WWII surplus jeep. Think Randy "Snake" Booher was there too.
Comments: Re: Edwin R. Henry 2nd class Petty 84th CBs Co. A. Just a note to let you all know Ed "ER" Henry has passed from this earth. He was very proud to have been a CB. 84th CB Bat. Co. A.
He was a "cookie" and served in the galley. Some of you might remember him.
He served as a Missionary to the Caribbean from 1952 to 1979 with Baptist Mid-Missions to the island of St. Vincent, then was a pastor and then general director of the Good News Mission in Indianapolis until he retired.
He always spoke fondly of his years and friends from the CBs...Dad was 86 when he passed away...he would have been 87 March 19th.

Comments: My Dad was a SeaBee Veteran. His name was Walter Joe Oglesby even though on his membership card it reads J.W. instead of W.J. Oglesby . He died on May 21, 2006 and my step Mother just died on March 1, 2012. They loved to go to the SeaBee Reunions and I felt I should write a note saying that they have both passed away now God Bless You All. SIncerely, Jeanette Villegas
