CAN DO Campaign

Our Seabee/CEC story is an essential part of the American story. Our challenges, contributions, sacrifices and successes deserve to be properly preserved for generations to come. We have taken bold steps to make sure the story is told. This month, for 15 days only, you have a special opportunity to be a part of that effort.

The building on the left housed the US Navy Seabee Museum at Port Hueneme for nearly half a century. Fashioned from an old Quonset hut, the structure was far too small and lacked the climate controls needed to properly preserve and display our ever-growing collection of irreplaceable artifacts and exhibits. The US Navy needed help to build a state-of-the-art museum to give OUR story the home it deserves. The Seabee Historical Foundation stepped up to the challenge, raising millions of dollars and giving it to the US Navy to make the new facility a reality. One of nine official US Navy museums, many now refer to the US Navy Seabee Museum in Port Hueneme as the very finest.

In CAN DO fashion, the Seabee Historical Foundation did what needed to be done to meet the challenges along the way to complete this mission. That included taking out a loan, which the Foundation is paying back to this day. Just as we were there when the US Navy needed help to preserve our legacy, now we are asking for your support.

To help pay back this loan, we have launched a special CAN DO CAMPAIGN that will begin on this year’s official observance of Veterans Day (11/12/18) and end on Giving Tuesday (11/27/18). That gives us 15 days to work together to raise the money we need.

Former Force Master Chief Chris Levesque, SCW, USN, (Ret.) has stepped up to help make this happen – and he is asking you to step up too! Take a moment to watch his message.
