1945 WW2 Guam Pictures of The Navy Sea Bees Building Projects:

In honor of Veteran's Day and in honor of my father-in-law, the late Troy Matthews, I have scanned the following pictures to share from his time in Guam during WW2 in the Navy Sea Bees. These were taken in 1945.  If you enjoy this post, I know that you will enjoy this one too: "The Agana Bridge in Guam ... Then and Now"
