1. CBMU 503 on Pelilieu
Thank you for your remembrances of the Seabees. It is highly appreciated and brings back many memories. As a member of the CBMU 503, we landed on Peliliu immediately following the hurricane depicted in The Caine Mutiny. Our Unit consisted of approximately 220 men and our task was to rebuild and maintain the fighter strip located under Bloody Nose Ridge and turned out to be the shortest bomb run in either stage of WW-2.
I would greatly appreciate receiving word of my Seabee mates.
Editor's Note: While we are honored to have this memorial posted on our website, we are not responsible for its dedication. Your thanks should be directed to the Navy Seabee Veterans of Elbert County, Georgia.
