Synopsis: The U.S. Naval Construction Battalion Center at Davisville, Rhode Island, is first remembered as the original “Home of the Atlantic Seabees.” During World War II, 100 battalions as well as dozens of other U.S. Navy “Builder-Fighter” units were formed,
outfitted, trained, and prepared for overseas deployment. Here, in the first photographic history of the base, is the story of the men and women who came to Davisville and their legacy of superb
accomplishments in the service of their country.
Established on February 27, 1942, the base was designated to manufacture and ship overseas materials and equipment and to outfit and embark construction battalions and other naval units. Between 1942 and 1994, when the base was closed, the Seabees participated in every war involving the United States. The Quonset Hut and the Davisville Pontoons were both developed at the Davisville Seabee
Center. The base has schooled and trained thousands of officers and tens of thousands of Seabees.

About the Author: Authors Walter K. Schroder, a military historian and former Defense Department contracting officer, and Gloria A. Emma, an executive secretary to 17 Commanding Officers at the base, have brought together their extensive knowledge of the Seabee Center for this volume. Their great respect for the Davisville Seabees’ contributions to military efforts over the years is apparent as they present this original history of the base. This collection is sure to be both an education and a source of pride for those who came through the base and for those hearing about it here for the first time.
