JHS Outing to Seabee Museum & Memorial-Jan 2019

JHS took a winter’s members-only outing to the Seabee Museum and Memorial. We were given a very informative tour by curator Jack Springle.  The modern Quonset Hut was built by many donations and houses a collection of memorabilia from the many Construction Battalions around the world.  We also visited the Chapel in the Pines built by the Seabees.
