Over at the U.S. Navy Seabee Museum’s Facebook Fan Page, they just added a collection of great Seabee photos. Take a look for yourself!

I can’t wait for their new museum to open!!!

  • Look at that nice NE Patriot’s flag….smart boys!

  • My uncle Homer Coatney was a SeaBee in WW2. He landed on Saipan. The only thing he once told me was how he used his bulldozer blade to deflect bullets, as he approached a Japanese machine gun bunker to bury it.

    He was a great guy, and I personally owe him a lot. Tragically, he died at a Kansas City airport when I was in USAEUR in Germany in 1968, when an off-course plane clipped off his own plane’s tail section at 800 feet.

    Hello friends:

    Like many WW2 vets, a dear friend’s father does not talk about his experience in the Seabees. Nevertheless, his namesake son and siblings are anxious to know about his war experience.

    This gentleman served in the 127th Naval Construction Battalion, according to his Notice of Separation papers, but the 127th is not listed in the official histories that I have read.

    Can anyone help me on the 127th and its duties in the Philippines? Please direct replies to kikokimba@gmail.com

    Many thanks in advance!
