About the 59th NCB
This is the unofficial home of the 59th Naval Construction Battalion. After two years of searching I was finely able to locate the Seabee battalion my grandfather served with during World War II. This was no easy task and even now information is sparse, sometimes conflicting and always leaving me with more questions than answers.
I’ve have been fortunate in that while searching I was able to find members of the 59th Naval Construction Battalion still living and able to share valuable information about the 59th and their experiences.
I have built this site to document the service and history of those who served, those who live and those who have died, so their sacrifices and achievements will not be lost to time.
