Found another "yearbook". This one's from the 58th Seabees battalion stationed on Vella Lavella with Pappy Boyington & The Black Sheep in WWII.

Awesome find BK. Those boys pull a hard duty during wartime. I am in the construction industry but can't imagine trying to do a job under fire which these folks have done countless times. I would turn and run if I saw one of these bad boys on the job site!!!

That's the military's new D-9 combat dozer. Here is a shot of a WWII era dozer with a boilerplate make over. Keep posting those good finds.

Great save Rick. Imagine all the stories those photos could tell if they could talk. That fine looking officer is a 2nd Lieutenant. The nurse corp motto was and is "Embrace the past - Engage the present - Envision the future". I'm sure she did all of those things and more in her day. Here is a clear shot of what the lapel pin looks like. Keep up the good work my friend.

Thanks, Trav. You know how much respect I have for that generation. What the heck were you doing awake at 5:22, by the way?

Haha that's west coast time. It was 8:22AM here and I was on my patio enjoying a cup of coffee and watching the hummingbirds in the garden.

Duh! You'd think after 8 years on TC, I'd know that!
