The Victory Battalion
Service of the 69th U.S. Naval Construction Battalion in the E.T.O.

The 69th Naval Construction Battalion saw service in Canada, England, Scotland, France and Germany. It is remembered as the battalion that closed Omaha Beach, made the longest overland movement of any construction battalion in World War II and became the first Seabee unit to relocate by air.

The Seabee veterans of the 69th are proud of their unit. They have an active reunion association and meet annually to reminisce about good times. The 1997 reunion was held in New Orleans.

69th NCB's Long Haul
This is one of the more interesting missions performed by the Seabees in World War II. The 69th NCB was the only Seabee battalion to serve in Germany during World War II.
