 Mission:

         The Navy CB Reenacted is dedicated to preserving the history of the veterans of World War II by educating the public on what life was like during the 1940s for the US Navy Seabees. 

 

Who We Are. What We Do. Why We Do This.                   

   

                We are a group of Progressive Living Historians who are devoted to the education of the general public with an emphasis on the life and times of the US Navy Seabee during World War II.

We always strive to do what is best for our members and the history we portray.  Safety and health come first and everything we do or choose not to do is because of these two considerations.  The primary mission of The CB Bn. is to educate the public on the life and times of the average Navy CB during World War II by participating in Living Histories. While at these events we strive to pass on our knowledge.

Our secondary purpose is to provide a safe and family oriented atmosphere.  Even though we portray sailors we will act in a gentlemanly manner.  Foul language and rude language will not be tolerated.  Also, public drunkenness will not be tolerated and anyone in violation of these rules will be asked to leave the Bn. and possibly the event.

        Although this re-enactment group may appear intense in its desire to reach this objective, the only way to get there is high Espirit de Corps and comradeship. There is an advantage in participation of historical events, sharing experiences with veterans, and understanding how our families lived in times gone by. Getting started in WWII re-enactment can be an enigmatic experience. And, depending on how much assistance one is given, that experience can be positive or negative. Therefore, other Seabees will assist in acclimating new personnel into the unit.
