I have read a book published by a former Seabee Team # 1001 OIC titled
"The Life & Times of Vince Kontny" which is surely one of the best books
that explain what the Seabees faced in country and throughout South East
Asia during the 1960's. "Vince stated While I received my degree from the
University of Colorado I received my education in the Seabees."

the Medal of Honor.
