    March the 6th 1942 is the birthday of the US Navy 'SEABEES' The construction branch of the Navy. Thier motto is "Can-Do" to which they have added "Been There" and "Done That"

    Without them the fleet would have nothing to gripe about, Marines would have nothing to talk about, and history would have nothing to write about.

    We`re the seabees of the navy, we can build, and we can fight. We`ll pave a way to victory, and guard it day, and night. And we promise that we`ll remember the "Seventh of December", We`re the seabees of the navy, bees of the seven seas.

    Thought some of you confused bas####s might get a kick out of this. I have an origional 1942 song of the Seabees. LL

    It was a priviledge to serve with the builders of the fleet.

    Joe, The confused comes from not knowing if we were in the navy, or the marines.

    I was a CM and on our shops was always a sign saying "The mechanics may not be the pride of the battalion, but without the mechanics, the won`t ride.

    Hats off to the SeaBees. I came up with the John Wayne movie, still have it on VCR and still watch it as I do all of the old Duke movies. The song is in that movie, too.
