Book Overview

This Description may be from another edition of this product.

The U.S. Naval Construction Battalion Center at Davisville, Rhode Island, is first remembered as the original Home of the Atlantic Seabees. During World War I, 100 battalions as well as dozens of other U.S. Navy Builder-Fighter units were formed,
outfitted, trained, and prepared for overseas deployment. Here, in the first photographic history of the base, is the story of the men and women who came to Davisville and their legacy of superb
accomplishments in the service of their country.
Established on February 27, 1942, the base was designated to manufacture and ship overseas materials and equipment and to outfit and embark construction battalions and other naval units. Between 1942 and 1994, when the base was closed, the Seabees participated in every war involving the United States. The Quonset Hut and the Davisville Pontoons were both developed at the Davisville Seabee
Center. The base has schooled and trained thousands of officers and tens of thousands of Seabees.
