The Seabees on Iwo Jima

About the Show

The Seabee's motto was 'We Build; We Fight.' Not only did these men have to build bases, but many times they had to put down their shovels or get off their bulldozers and pick up a rifle or machine gun to fend off enemy attacks. The Seabee's most violent fight was on Iwo Jima, where they went ashore in the first wave with the Marines. It's on Iwo Jima where their motto 'We Build; We Fight' was most famously put to the test in World War II.
