CommentsMy father and my uncle where both Seabee. My father I just recently found out was part of the 62nd and my Uncle part of the 5th. Thank you so much for having this site available for family members that go back and learn more about the Seabee's. I am very proud be the daughter and niece of these two great men so much that I joined myself at the age of 18 (US Army). Thank you again.

CommentsI have recently found out that my mother's cousin, Leroy (Roy) Doege, was with the 62nd Naval Construction Battalion. They landed on Iwo Jima 25 Feb 1945. The 62nd was charged with building air strips for the B-29s. Roy was born in 1901 so he was probably one of the oldest men with his unit. No one in our family passed down the story of his contribution to the war effort.
Is there anyone out there that might have served on Iwo with Roy?
I know it has been more than 70 years but would like to talk to someone who was there with Roy.

He will always be remembered as a husband, father, grandfather, brother and friend who loved spending time with his family and friends.
