MEMORIALS AND MARKERS
A Very Special Opportunity
Our development plans include an area designed to compliment the “Fighting Seabee” where we will display Memorial Plaques. This is your opportunity to recognize your fellow Seabees or Battaion. Family members can honor a Seabee of their own. The engraved plaques are available in two sizes, 2”x4” and 4”x4”. Both sizes provide ample space for a dedication.
We urge you to take the opportunity to add to our growing number of Commemorative Plaque participants. When you do, you are helping finance the Seabee Museum and Memorial Park as well.
Please review our “Commemorative Plaque Order Form” to fully understand the options available. And of course, if you have any questions feel free to contact us.
We'll send you a photo of your plaque. Click here to view and print an Order Form.
As part of the Museum, there is a large grove of pine and hardwood tree, along a gently sloping hill. The atmosphere is one of quiet reflection. In this area are memorials to fallen Seabees and Battalions. These include stone and brass plaques as well as memorial benches.
The first memorial marker placed on the trail honors Seabee CM2 Peter Lewis Stith of Bainbridge Island, WA. While serving with Seabee Team 0604 of MCB 6, he was killed by enemy fire at Long An, Vietnam, on April 11, 1969.
Memorials can only be added by a vote of the Board of Directors and must comply with the park design standards. If you are interested in a memorial for a family member, friend, or fellow Seabee, please contact us with your request.
U.S. Navy Seabee Prayer
Lord, stand beside the men who build, and give them courage, strength and skill. O grant them the peace of heart and mind, and comfort loved ones left behind. Lord, hear our prayer for all Seabees, where're they be on land or sea
