Seabee Reunion


MCB2 Newsletter vol 12 no 4.pdf dated August 5, 2018

See the most recent SEABEES Newsletter!​

Our Last Reunion was in Las Vegas.  
Sad to say but the Las Vegas reunion was the last reunion for the MCB 2 Reunion Association.  We have been able to get together for 26 years, beginning with the Springfield, Missouri reunion.  We were in San Antonio when the Twin Towers were destroyed by terrorists, but each reunion has had memories.  Do you remember your first reunion?  But the time has come to an end.  The announcement brought tears to many eyes and many stories of reunions past.  We had a very good time in Las Vegas and had some that attended for the first time.  Thanks to all who came to make Las Vegas a memorable reunion.  We will continue the Newsletter, but primarily as an on-line Newsletter.  We plan to continue the web site and dues are still needed to keep it open.

The above image was taken from a photograph of the Seabees pouring concrete for the upper level reservoir for the Cubi Point project.  The image for this medallion was sculpted by Felix de Weldon (a former Seabee) from that photograph.  All men are MCB 2 and LCdr. Hark Ketels (BU 3 at the time) is second from left in the photograph and on the medal.
