Comments: I would like to hear from anyone from ncb#5 station in Dung Ha , Viet Nam during 1966 and 1968. I was a third class Petty Officer , Heavy equipment opperator. Some of my buddies were Alex Carestio from Cherry Hill New Jersey and Bob Ramp from Chicago.
Comments: I would love to hear from any Seabee who was based in Wellington New Zealand in 1942/43 and who may have met my mother Joanne (Jo) Maddock (since deceased). If you think you may have known Jo, it would mean a lot to me to hear from you - regards Robyn
Comments: My Dad, Robert Jeys, served in the South Pacific in WW II and always told us he was a Seabee, but didn't really say much more about his experiences (no big surprise there!) Anyway, I got his Navy records and they say he was at the training center in Great Lakes, IL, and then went to Naval Training School at Purdue University in Lafayette, Indiana. It says he completed the "EM" (Electrician's Mate?) school after 16 weeks. Eventually he shipped out from Camp Shoemaker (now Camp Parks) in California on the USS Joseph T. Dickman in January 1945, and was assigned to N.A.B. Navy 145 (I think this was Guadalcanal) from March to August 1945. Then it shows he went to Sect. Base, Navy 1170 SLCU #40 (I think this was at Okinawa) until January 1946. He held AS, F2c and F1c ratings. Can anyone tell me anything else about what all of this means and if he was a Seabee or not? Thanks!
