    Default Anyone know any WW2 Seabees?

    My Dad was in the Seabees in the Pacific. He was in New Guniea, Philippines, and China. Would be interested in hearing from any former Seabees or the children of Seabees .

    My Dad was in the 122nd Seabees. I believe he went in in 1943 and got out sometime in 1946. What battalian was you father in? What years did he serve? How about those other guys, what do you know about their service?

    122nd Seabees - After formation at Peary in October 1943, the 122nd NCB was transferred to Camp Parks, then to Port Huneme on December 28. It left the states Feb. 21, 1944 and arrived at Milne Bay, New Guinea. The battalion operated at Gamododo, Milne Bay, until alerted for Hollandia in May 1944, where it was operating until December 20. On that date, the 122nd left Hollandia for Samar, and was stil there in August 1945.

    Yes, your information is correct! As an addition, some members of the 122nd ended up in Tientsein, China as occupation troops, my father among them. You didn't answer my question though about your father's service. What unit was he in? What years did he serve? What was his occupation?

    I just checked it out. Looks like he was at some of the same places my Dad was at and at the same time. A couple of years ago, I took my Dad to the dedication of the WW2 Memorial in D.C. It was a enjoyable day. We met a few other Seabees there. It was nice to talk with those guys. My Dad was a Carpenter's Mate, he worked on building the hospitals etc. He was sure glad those 2 "Bombs" were dropped on Japan. He would have been in the invasion.

    The Seabee "Specials" were Stevedores - and many were used as "shore parties"Loading and unloading ships on the beachheads and then moving the cargo to inland supply dumps. Other than their campsites and ramps for the ships to help facilitate entry, they really didn't build anything unless called upon to do so.

    My father (Hardie Lensford Bass) was in the 122nd NCB. However, he never talked about his service. I have several bits of Seabee memorabilia (including his copy of Base Pacific) and recently found and scanned negatives of scenes at Hollandia and (I assume) Samar. His DD214 indicates that he served at or was assigned to the following: 122nd NCB, Pontoon Assembly Detail #3, 122 NOB "A" Division and the 29th NCB. Most of this means little to me except that I know he served in the Philippines and New Guinea. He was a "Motor Mechanic 3rd Class" but we always though he was a Machinist Mate 3rd Class, because the rating symbol (the screw or propellor) is the same. Anything pertinent will be appreciated.

    Sorry, my first post. I intended the message for UNOGA AND LACONIA and others who are related to persons in the 122nd. I would appreciate any photos to share with my Dad.

    If you look in the beginning of this thread I posted a few photo's of my Dad. Pages 1 and 2. His name is Gillies Tardif, now 87 years old. Does your Dad have that 122nd Unit book by any chance? I haven't been here for awhile but I will check soon for your answer.
