Comments: We as veterans know what Memorial Day is about, honoring all of our brothers in arms that have fallen. But I believe most other people don't know what it is really about other then a holiday for BBQing and drinking beer. We as veterans weather Navy,Army,Marines or Air Force we need to let those people know what it is truely about in honoring all fallen veterans from wars past to present and honor them on their day.
Comments: WWII, service dates - 1943-1946. Camp Peary, Va., Davisville, R.I., Port Hueneme, CA. Marianas Islands, Saipan. I took a trip back to Saipan, Tinian and Guam 1989. Took my wife. Wonderful trip. My unit was 31spec USNCB. Anybody out there that connects? Life member NSVA, also Island 16, Hillsborough County, FL.
Comments: I was enlisted 1977. My rate was CM. Equipment Operator. Alas I didn't make it. I was medicaly discharged when I got injured a couple of weeks before graduating Boot. Saddens me I didn't finish. Glad to see a Seabee website.
Comments: I am searching for veterans who may have known my grandfather who served in the CBD 1514 in Argentia, Newfoundland and in Ireland during WWII. I'd like to learn more about his unit and deployment during his years of service
Comments: I'd like to share news with all Seabees. A film about the 25th Anniversary Vietnam Veterans Memorial is finished. Visit weekendtorememberfilm.com, there you can add photos to Veterans Day Parade.

Comments: My father was born in Jersey City, New Jersey 1923 did not finish high school, enlisted instead in Army before 41' but his building skills were too advanced so he was discharged from Army and enlisted in Navy and served as a Seabee in The Aleutians. His name was Edwin Eckler, Jr. How do I look up his Seabee history? Thank you. Bob Eckler PS My father died a little over a year ago. He was a very modest man and people gravitated to him for his advice and help. I noticed once that a simple handshake and a voiced "thank you" from someone he had assisted would make him smile very briefly and his verbal response was always how it was not possible without someone else's help. He always diverted the credit, embarressed by praise. He once refused a good promotion preferring to stay and work with his team of men rather than a desk/office job. He was a millwright at Colgate Polmolive in Jersey City. Thanks for your help Bob
Comments: Itg would be great to hear from anyone who was stationed with me.
In 1951 was in Guantanamo, for five months after school at Pt. Hueneme. Then to Port Lyautey six months, then Argentia six months, then back to Lyautey 18 months then dischared. All that took four years. I was a UT, made third class right before I got out. In cuba we were on an APL barge at Bay Hill. Right next to the big mess hall and the outdoor theater.I was in Davisville between the deployments.
Maybe we knew each other. I am from New Orleans. I was 18 when I joined. Ill be 80 in August. Let me know if we were stationed together.
