An internet guide to the Navy Seabees

There are a number of very good U.S. Navy Seabees sites on the internet.  We hope to provide you with links to some of the best sites on the internet.  This is our opinion based on the sites we were able to find at the time this web page was designed.   This site is an information site for Navy Seabees which was created by the Lowry's.  Sam Lowry Jr. is a reserve U.S. Navy Seabee who served in Desert Storm.  Sam Lowry Jr. approached his father who is a gold and silversmith about creating some unique items for Seabees.  If you are interested in seeing the items click on the banner above.  Otherwise, we hope this site proves a valuable resource for all those interested in researching the Navy Seabees online.

I couldn't find many sites offering information on good books and reference material that is available but, not on the web so, I did a little research and found a few that are note worthy.

CAN DO!: The story of the Seabees - This book contains a lot of in person stories and photographs. - This book was written by William Bradford Huie.

FROM OMAHA TO OKINAWA : The Story of the Seabees - This is a new book by William Bradford Huie that is a sequel to the CAN DO! book above.

While this is a fictional account of a Seabees construction boss played by John Wayne is does portray how the seabees came about.
