Overview

Seabee Book NAVAL CONSTRUCTION BATTALION CENTER DAVISVILLE, Davisville, Rhode Island a Historical Perspective 1942-1994

1.From its first days, the "Original Home of the SEABEES" has had a rich and famous history since it was established as the Davisville Advanced Base Depot, February 27,1942. This was just eighty-two days after the bombing of Pearl Harbor. Since then it has provided vital support to meet our country's needs in World War II, the Korean and Vietnam Conflicts, Operation Deep Freeze, and finally. Desert shield/Desert Storm,

2.Lasting achievements, i.e., the Quonset Hut and the DavisviIle Pontoons, were developed here at the Seabee Center. This Center has schooled and trained thousands of officers and tens of thousands of Seabees. CBC Davisville also provided significant planning and support to Operation Deep Freeze in Antarctica and Project Reindeer on Diego Garcia. These accomplishments only touch upon the significant world events this Center has been party to. Additionally, there are untold hundreds of associations we have been a part of with our Community, the State of Rhode Island, New England, the Navy, the United States, and most importantly, the families of our seabees and civilians.

3.Our history as a Seabee Center is recorded in many books similar to this one. Our history as a Seabee Center was written by its people, I have had the pleasure of meeting hundreds of former seabees and civilians who have told of what the Seabee Center has done for them. Seabees who learned not only a career, but a way of I ife. Many of these people have made life long friendships. Civilians, who raised families and made the "American Dream" a reality. These people remember the good things, like sleeping in muddy foxholes, working around the clock to get a ship loaded, standing watches on holidays. These are only a sampling of what has been shared with me over time. Do not believe for one instant that my new friends were complaining. They were sincerely thrilled with the fact that they were as much a part of this Seabee Center as it is a part of them. They are truly thankful for the part they keep with them.

4. I know, without a doubt, that the history of the Davisville Seabee Center is the people who built its reputation through outstanding service to the United States of America, This document is an attempt to record the events that justify the history written by the Center's family of Seabees and civilians.
