The Seabees Speak: Interviews with the <i>Can Do</i> Veterans of World War II

Who paved the way for the Marines, the Army, and the Air Force in World War II? The United States Naval Construction Battalion, better known as Seabees. Through their knowledge of the construction trades, the Seabees literally built the way for the war to be won. The "Enola Gay," the B-29 that dropped the atomic bombs over Japan and ended World War II, took off and landed on the Tinian Island airstrip built by Seabees. Think of it-no ports or harbors to unload ships, no airstrips to land on, no bridges to span the waterways. Where would we have been without these industrious veterans? Relive the experiences of the Seabees as they speak in their own words. Travel with them as young men just entering the service. Follow along as they reflect on the war with humor and poignancy. Become inspired with their insight and advice for today's world. Then you, too, will come to understand the meaning of the Seabee slogan, Can Do. If there wasn't a way, they would surely find one. As inscribed on the Seabee Memorial in Washington, D.C., "The Difficult We Do At Once, The Impossible Takes A Bit Longer."
