Comments: Served as BU2 in MOB 10 Navy Seabees, 1952-56, on Guam, Kwajalein Atoll, K-6 Korea, Iwa Kuni, Japan. I was a blocklayer. At K-6 Marine "mop up" base, our platoon of Marines kept North Korean snipers at bay on day/night patrols, while we built a concrete runway without experiencing combat. THANK YOU MARINES! Best buddy Bob Suter of St. Louis, and Fiori (east coast), Don (Detroit), and 7 other Seabees who worked together at those bases. I was honorably discharged at Treasure Island, CA, in March, 1956. Looking back, I wished I had re-enlisted to serve in Iwa Kuni.

I am very sad to pass on the information that PNC David B. Youngs of the Meyer-Janney Island X-4 Toledo, Ohio passed away in his sleep early 9 September, 2013 Saturday morning. Arrangements are being made at this time for visitation on Wednesday and Thursday with the funeral being held on Friday. I will supply more firm times as information becomes available. Dave will be missed by me as well as many in the SEABEE community.
