Camp Lejeune - Seabee Training Records

Veterans who served at Camp Lejeune or MCAS New River for at least 30 cumulative days from August 1953 through December 1987—and their family members—can get health care benefits. Many Seabees, especially those stationed at CBC Davisville or CBC Gulfport, may have trained at Camp Lejeune during this time period.

In an effort to better serve the Seabee community, the US Navy Seabee Museum is consolidating all materials held in our archive related to Seabee training at Camp Lejeune. Some of these materials are already digitized and links are listed by unit and years below. The archival staff is working to digitize additional materials and add them as completed. Only battalions homeported at Davisville or Gulfport and some reserve units may have trained at Camp Lejeune. Those units are listed below but the list may expand as we locate materials. Please email NHHC_USNSMarchive@us.navy.mil,  if you need specific materials not already digitized.

For additional materials related to your deployment, view the Seabee Museum’s Find my Seabee Records webpage with more detailed information on researching our online content.

Please contact the VA directly for additional information related to filing a claim regarding exposure to contaminated water at Camp Lejeune.
