Celebrating the 50th Anniversary of local Seabees
Background and celebration
We were honored to cater the 2016 reunion of the Naval Mobile Construction Battallion Fifty-Eight Association.
This association is a non-profit fraternal and benevolent organization, which supports a number of military-related charities. Members of this organization, in association with the Navy Seabees, have all served in Viet Nam, with some of them also having served in WWII.
The affair was held at the Seabee Museum and Memorial Park in Davisville, Rhode Island to commemorate the 50th anniversary of the commissioning of “The Great Fifty-Eight”. For these many years, the men and women of the Naval Construction Force have been giving their all to protect our nation and to serve our armed forces with pride.
The Mission of the Seabee Museum and Memorial Park is to provide a memorial to the thousands of men and women who served at Davisville, Rhode Island from its inception in 1942 until its closure in 1994, to preserve this historical site and this significant period in Rhode Island history, the “Original Home of the Seabees‘, to document the history of the US Navy Seabees, and to provide a learning site for the public.
It’s important to note that this museum was built by Seabees, run by Seabees, for Seabees and their families, as well as for the public. The majority of physical support comes from volunteer former Seabees, the Seabee Reserves, and the wives, sons, and friends of Seabees in Rhode Island. We think it is a really interesting place to visit and recommend taking your family for a tour.
This night, the attendees enjoyed a good old-fashioned New England Clambake.
