Sorry to say that dad passed away yesterday at 98. As a WWII vet he served as a Machinest Mate Second Class and stevedore with 1/st and 2/nd Special Seebees in New Caledonia, Guadalcanal, Marshall Island, and Guam.He participated in the invasion of Guam on July 21/st, 1944 and served overseas for 27 months. He was discharged on Oct. 7/th, 1945. He will be missed.

Thank You to all of our Vets!

My sympathy to you and your family. We lost my mother in January and I completely understand what you are dealing with right now. You will be in our prayers.

I remember watching John Wayne in "The Fighting Seabees" with dad, and he said "that's what I used to do". That's about the extent of his willingness to talk about the war.

Thanks so much for the wonderful guys and gals of the Greatest Generation that did their part. Those of us who have served also have never forgotten the price they paid. Sorry for your loss. Look forward to the reunion!

Very sorry for your loss.

I am a retired USAF vet. I am very sorry for your loss. Your Dad was veteran in a class of their own. A generation of men and women who served for a calling greater than their own. My hat is off and I am filled with gratitude for men like your Dad who paved the way for vets like myself. May Gods peace and love be upon you and your loved ones at this season in your lives.
