Comments: I was an IPO that went to the "Ice" twice in 1968/69 and 1969/70 with CBU-201. I was at McMurdo sound and Davisville, RI. Looking for anyone that shared these tours. This is my first try at contacting anyone following my retirement from Constellation Energy. I was a CE3 while in the service. Will respond to all contacts.
Comments: Served with MCB 5 1969-71. Viet Nam in 70, Guam in 71. Was wondering if there are any lists available of members of MCB 5 during that time. Looking for info on my best man at my wedding who was Willie Cox.

Comments: Hi Professor! I have the original sheet music "The Song of the Seabees". Yes, the lyrics were written by Sam E. Lewis and the music was by Peter De Rose. It was copyrighted in 1942 by the United States Navy, Bureau of Yards and Docks and all rights other than for printed copy distribution were reserved by Robbins Music Corporation, 799 Seventh Avenue., Ny, NY. The song also has a secured International Copyright. I have tried to get information on the Robbins Music Corporation, but so far, no luck. For your information, The Song of the Seabees isa the only U.S. Military song ever nominated for an Academy Award. I'll keep searching for more info, but I would imagine NAVFAC could get permission for you to use the music. Hope this has been of some value to you. God bless!
Comments: I am trying to get permission to publish the lyrics of "The Song of the Seabees" by Sam M. Lewis for a book on Naval Academy monuments that includes a passage on Admiral Moreell. Any suggestions? Thanks! Prof. Nancy Arbuthnot, US Naval Academy
