Where are they now?

An important function of the CEC/Seabee Historical Foundation is to act as a clearing house for Seabees and CEC officers, past and present. We need your help to make our listing as complete as possible. You can submit any information you have using this form. Thank you!

The CEC/Seabee Historical Foundation is a 501 (c) 3 non-profit organization whose purpose is to ensure the proud heritage and rich history of the Navy’s Civil Engineer Corps and the Navy’s military construction force, the Seabees, are properly documented, preserved and maintained. Public awareness of the contributions and accomplishments of the Seabees and the Civil Engineer Corps is a primary goal. Founded in September, 1991, the Foundation has a worldwide membership and all donations are tax deductible.
