Interesting to learn about the Sea Bees (my uncle was one in WWII)... and you have to love the statue of the sea-bee that welcomes you to the area. Unique branch of the service, to be honored. Fun to know where Quonset huts originated.

Very newly moved into their new building, but it is looking great! A great chance for people to explore one of the best units in the Navy! Seabees both build and fight. Truly multi-purpose. The museum has done a great job of highlighting Davisville Rhode...More
