I just want to add to Arnie's comments below.....NMCB 71 held their first reunion since their decommissoning in 1975. We were invited to join our WW II Brother's of the 71st NCB at their reunion in Loisville. I want to thank Fred Balke and All of the 71st for showing us a great time and all of our NMCB 71 Seabees who could make it on short notice. Arnie is right...you don't know what your missing if you haven't attended one of these reunions. If your unit doesn't have a reunion....get one started....we're not getting any younger. We're planning on our next reunion in Davisville/Providence next year with the NSVA.

On June 21st Oregon had an all seabee reunion in Salem and there were about 120 "Bees" and wives in attendence. A great time to meet and share with veterans of all years. There were about twenty five from WW2 era and all the stories were great to hear. My brother Russ,a UTC and I met another UTC who we both served with in Mob 11,Al Juarez who also lives in Ore. Thanks to Bob Cochrane who organized the affair. Keith Neilson sent news letter about the reunion in Hueneme and it looks like it was also another sucess. Keith reports that MCB11 now has around 125 members and growing in only two years of organizing. I would like to encourage all Bees to search out your Mobs that you served in and join them. Hope to make next years reunion in Port Hueneme.Have a good summer Bees everywhere. Arnie Marcoe mob11-'58-'61

I've found some of his diving orders, pictures and unit medal orders. He died in 1987 without hardly ever talking about the war. Is there anyone out there who has a history of the 301st during WWII or a link to their web site, if they have one. I'm a retired AF E-8 and multiple tour VN vet.

It really amazes me to see how long we can be, and will always be, a Bee! I am so proud of the fact that I got the opportunity to serve my country even in times of peace. Lets all take a momment and think, or pray for the SeaBees that are out there right now doing what is right for our country and never questioning why? We have been there and in our hearts, we will always Bee. "Can Do" is exactly what it says. Right now I have a long time buddy in Iraq doin what I would do (tryin to get native artifacts) just kidding. I have written to him, and I hope if you know of some one there, or somewhere that they need to Bee. Write to him (or her) and let them know you are thinking of them. Remember the daze when you wished you would get a letter.

I would appreciate any help with how to go about a search to find anyone who might have served with my father, Thomas McMeans, known to us always as Bud McMeans, during WW2. His DD 214(seperation papers) shows he was in the : 34 Nav Constr Battalion(SP), 92Nav Constr Battalion, 5 Nav Constr Brigade, and 103 Nav Constr Batt. I went to the Seabee Museum and found out that the 34th served on Tulagi, Okinawa, and the Russels. the 92nd served in Saipan and Tinian. That is all I know. Bud was a welder and was 35 when he went in, late in '43, leaving behind my Mom and my sister and I. Mom and he seperated and I never saw him after I was 5 years old.
If anyone knows how I might go about looking for any info, please email me.
Sincerely,

On Saturday, 31 May 2003, I returned to Davisville, Rhode Island for a poorly planned visit to the Seabee Museum and Memorial only to find it closed. Nevertheless, my wife and I were warmly received by the Saturday volunteers and enjoyed a presentation outlining the scope of this effort to ensure enduring recognition of the many contributions of Seabees both past, present, and future.

Those who are volunteering a significant portion of their lives to bring this bold undertaking to reality remind me of the proud statement, “As a Seabee, I've done so much with so little for so long, I think I can do anything with nothing!” However, we all know this fails the test of reality regarding material costs and the other costs associated with meeting today’s construction standards. Yet, these dedicated men refuse to give up their dream even when confronted with overwhelming odds. In a profound recognition of something wonderful, I immediately donated the meager contents of my wallet. Our fellow Seabees Working for this worthy cause need and deserve our support!

It has been a long time. My daughter just turned 50 years of age. I went into the SeaBees just before she was born. My first Batt. was MCB8 at Davisville 1953, our skipper was R.G. Witherall. Simon Peter Gray was Charlie Co. Company Chief, Warrent Officer Ben Jacobson was the company commander. The Battalion went to Argentia, Nfld. and Gitmo Bay, Cuba.
I also served with MCB1, CBBU, CBC as well as supply yard for Operation Deepfreeze. U.S. Naval Air Station, Argentia, U.S. Naval Air Station Port Lyautey, Naval Air Station Norfolk, Va. Port Hueneme, Ca Naval School of Construction, MCB 11 Guam, Midway Island, Us Naval Recruiting Station N. Y. Joint Task Group 8.6 Johnston Island, South Pacific, MCB 8 for the second time, to Vietnam 68/70 and onto Davisville, RI Naval Schools of Construction as Senior Instructor Builder School prior to retirement in 1973. That is right, I have been retired for the past 30 years. Yet, I am still working and I am still teaching. Thanks for the training in our many fields and the proper leadership throughout my career I am proud to say that I was a Sea Bee and a damn good one at that.

Hi, I am looking for anyone that might have met or served with my maternal grandpa. He was in the 6th Naval Construction Battalion. He helped build airstrips and unloading of new weapons. He died a few years after returning home in a work related accident. I am the oldest grandchild and would love anything anyone has that can help me. My grandma is in failing health and the memories where never shared and now it is almost too late. Please let me know if anyone can give me a name of a fellow Seabee that might know him...Thank you.

On Saturday, 31 May 2003, I returned to Davisville, Rhode Island for a poorly planned visit to the Seabee Museum and Memorial only to find it closed. Nevertheless, my wife and I were warmly received by the Saturday volunteers and enjoyed a presentation outlining the scope of this effort to ensure enduring recognition of the many contributions of Seabees both past, present, and future.

Those who are volunteering a significant portion of their lives to bring this bold undertaking to reality remind me of the proud statement, “As a Seabee, I've done so much with so little for so long, I think I can do anything with nothing!” However, we all know this fails the test of reality regarding material costs and the other costs associated with meeting today’s construction standards. Yet, these dedicated men refuse to give up their dream ever when confronted with overwhelming odds. In a profound recognition of something wonderful, I immediately donated the meager contents of my wallet. Seabees, these are worthy shipmates who need and deserve our support!

Hi. My dad(Harmon Francis Zimmer)was a Seabee serving in the Pacific in WWII. I was wondering if there is any way to memoralize his service with the Seabee's? He passed away in 1964 and was always proud of his service in the Navy. I remember seeing cards he sent to my mom with the Seabee's logo; she saved them until she died. It was great to visit the website, which I found out about by meeting a Viet Nam Seabee vet at an airport last fall. Have you thought of adding a section for the children of Seabee's?

The person who is tampering with the site has the behavioral signals usually seen in people who have an obsessive/compulsive disorder. My hunch is that it will continue until he is either medicated or arrested. This is exactly the kind of personality disorder that the homeland security people are interested in finding. Billy mentioned contacting the FBI, and I believe he should. We are mostly combat veterans and as such, would be listened to as being credible. What do you think Alan?

Hi Billy,
After giving the Guestbook problems some thought, I realized that almost all of the legitimate entries do not use the function that ties the name of its author to a URL. In fact, all the Seabees really need to post, if they wish to, is their e'mail address! If you can eliminate this URL function, the idiots seeking to promote their Web sites would have to list their URLs in the message text and would probably quickly realize that is a waste of time. Another consideration is that if someone does copy a URL posted in the message text and visit that site, the STATS program for that Web site will not reveal your Web sites as a referring URL thus leaving the a******s unable to know if their Guestbook postings are generating any visitors. The current rash of postings with no or bogus URLs is probably only one scumbag who you can't catch and he may soon go away if ignored.

Does anyone disagree with this idea?

We are founded on a two party system for a reason, and that's so that no one group of people can have totalatarian power. I'm led to believe that we just fought against that very thing. We saw in the election/appointment of 2000 just how evenly divided we are as a nation, and that's OK, as long as we don't kill each other over it. It says on the Seabee Memorial in D.C. that "We Build and We Fight for Peace with Freedom"...and I believe that as a group we do stand for that. I'm going to continue to stand for as long as I live. We are supposed to feel differently, and talk about it! Our country is based on open dialog, and that's what has made us strong. It doesen't do any good to toss around the hate words. I'm very proud to be one of you.

I was fortunate enough to be at a rally for our troops in Norton Ma. where I went to RVN from. After my introduction and reading of a poem which was written while in Nam I notice a woman holding up a sign "My daughter is a Seabee in Iraq". Upon leaving the podium I approched her and asked how she was and if there was anything I could do or tell her. Her answer was " could I please have a hug and please say a prayer" I was proud to be able to assist.

Bees Forever in mind, heart and spirit.

Would like to report the passing of a SeaBee. My father, EO-1 Art Bartholomew, passed away on 3 Apr 03 after a 5 year battle with cancer. With typical "Can Do" attitude, he fought to the end. He served in the USNR from 1954 - 1966. He was out of Des Moines IA, not sure in which unit he served. He spoke fondly of Davisville.

Proud to be the son of a Bee,

The so-called peace symbol is actually the foot print of the American chicken. Also, French's mustard is an American product and the only thing it has in common with the French is that both are yellow!

I wonder if the protestors of to-day, are the off spring of the ones of yesteryear? If there was someone with enough guts to stop Hitler in 1933, I don't think the war would have lasted 12 years, at the cost of 56.4 million lives.The people who took part in the disgraceful display, should be branded as traitors. I don't care that they protested at the onset of war, but when we went into combat, they should have stoped their protest and supported our young men and women all the way...I was.. I am.. I always will be.. A seabee..... M.C.B.3 1950-53

WELL SAID
When in England at a fairly large conference, Colin Powell was asked by the Archbishop of Canterbury if our plans for Iraq were just an example of empire building by George Bush.
He answered by saying that, "Over the years, the United States has sent many of its fine young men and women into great peril to fight for freedom beyond our borders. The only amount of land we have ever asked for in return is enough to bury those that did not return."
It became very quiet in the room.
