The accomplishments of the Seabees have actually been one of the impressive features of the war.-- Admiral Ernest J. King, Commander in Chief, United States Fleet, and Chief of Naval Operations.



3 hundred and twenty 5 thousand men functioned as Seabees through the course of World War Two.

Throughout those years they constructed over 4 hundred advanced bases in both the Atlantic and the Pacific theaters.

Their bravery and decision enabled the Allied Forces to get the upper hand over the enemy by rapidly rebuilding harbors, repairing airstrips and laying countless miles of roads.

Can Do! The Story of the Seabees by William Bradford Huie is a remarkable examination one the most interesting forces in the Second World War.

The effect that they made upon the war can be seen from the following declarations from leaders from across the armed force:

"... the Seabees are the find of this war."-- Major General H. M. Smith, USMC

"... It had actually been a constant source of marvel to me how one unit-- the Seabees-- might possess so lots of abilities and accomplish such a substantial quantity and range of work."-- Major General A. M. Patch, USA, Commanding General, the Seventh Army

"... The Navy will remember this war by its Seabees."-- Vice-Admiral W. L. Calhoun, USN

"... the Seabees are proving themselves one of our most crucial military units in this life-and-death struggle throughout the world."-- Captain Edward V. Rickenbacker

"... no obstacle was ever too excellent for the Seabees."-- Brigadier General Henry L. Larsen, USMC
