I just needed to put a word in here for a great Seabee Veteran ! In 1942, (or very close to this time) my father signed up to be a Navy Seabee. He was 27 years old when he signed up. The youngest picture of my Father that I have ever seen is from a news letter that came up on Ancestry.com showing him as a new Seabee. My Dad lived through the Great Depression, he was a "Ridge runner " during Prohibition, as well as starting latter in life with a much younger wife to start a family. He was 50 years old when I was born and I have a younger brother too. He passed from this Earth in 1996 at the age of 80. I have the best memories and stories from this man that I could go on and write for days ! He was a Man that all real Men appreciated ! In 2001, I started my own Business and named it in honor of my Dad that taught me so much about life, Business, and People . This is my 20th year in Business as SEABEE CONSTRUCTION, llc ! I sometimes do Plumbing work for customers but never without thinking of my Dad that taught me that trade! God Bless this Country and especially all of our Veterans !!

Gotta respect men who could operate one of those era cable-driven bulldozers one-handed ... because he was trained to use the other hand for the M-1 or the .45 or the Thompson... Accurate, effective suppressive fire while getting the job done.

This Marine salutes the Sea Bee!

Semper Fi, Dad!

Hand salute!

Ready ... TWO!
