Dedication planned for Seabee memorial
On Friday, July 31, at 9 a.m., the public is invited to a dedication of the new Gulf War Seabee Memorial. Members of the Naval Mobile Construction Battalion 27 recently broke ground on the first non-military memorial to honor U.S. Navy Seabees killed in the Gulf Wars.
The memorial is located on the grounds of the Seabee museum and memorial park in North Kingstown and will include a plaque honoring each fallen Seabee. It will also feature a flagpole donated by the Quonset Development Corporation.
