Fred Von Braunsberg - Died On August 1, 2010. Fred served with the 74th Seabee Battalion on Tarawa, Kwajelin & Okinawa during WW2. An original CB 74 plankowner he found the experience left an indelible mark on his life. Fred was at Camp Peary, Williamsburg Va., when the 74th was commissioned on April 28, 1943, under the leadership of LCDR Fremont Elliot, CEC, USNR. In the next six months, the battalion moved to Camp Endicott, Rhode Island; then onto Camp Parks (near San Francisco); next it was at Camp Rousseau; Port Hueneme, California, where they marched, drilled and were assigned their first equipment. From here they embarked on troop transports, with the equipment loaded onto LST's and sailed to Pearl Harbor. It was time for the 74th NCB to enter the fight in the Pacific.

In short order, they were back aboard LST's heading south to the Gilbert Islands. The unit landed on Tarawa's Betio Island on November 23, 1943, only three days after the 2nd Marine Division's D-Day. Under months of regular Japanese aerial attacks, the 74th produced fantastic feats of construction accomplishments on Tarawa, the "unsinkable carrier" CB 74 later followed the Marines onto Kwajelin in the Marshall Islands and then ultimately ended the war on Okinawa. That is where the battalion was deactivated on October 31, 1945.

MAY HE REST IN PEACE!

I have to report that Avery Stegmaier, WW2 Seabee with USNCB2 deployed to Wallis Island near Fiji, died on July 25, 2010. Avery had seen my MCB11 sticker on my car and introduced himself as a WW2 vet. He was very quiet about his wartime service; we have lost another contact with a very special group of men.

I sending this in hopes that they are something for the fallen seabee's. To honor them for what they did. My son was a seabee stationed in Gulfport Mississippi. He was deployed first to Japen then he was sent to Seychelle Africa. 19 days before he was to return home he lost his life. It was November 20, 2005. He loved the Seabee's. He was doing great. I miss him so much. There isn't a day that passes that i don't think about him and how i would have love to have one more hug. His mother Judy Turpin. Are they any way of getting garden flags with the Seabee's emblem on them. I keep a navy flag on his cemetary lot all the time. His mother Judy Turpin

Any suggestions will be greatly appreciated.
Thank you.
