Post-WWII Seabee Cruisebooks 


Naval Mobile Construction Battalion Forty deployed to Bosnia-Herzegovina as part of Task Force 519, IFOR, in support of Operation Joint Endeavor, 1996. Throughout the harsh freezing winter and amid the seas of mud, the Seabees of NMCB-40 tactically retrograded U.S. Army base camps, transported materiel, dismantled camps, supported Camp Colt’s LSA, removed snow and ice, and completed numerous other missions that spread the personnel throughout the sector.

U.S. Navy Seabee Cruisebooks are unofficial pictorial publications that document the daily life and deployment of a Seabee unit. Creating cruisebooks is an old tradition of the U.S. Navy which dates back to the late 1800s. The newly formed U.S. Navy Seabees continued this tradition shortly after their creation at the beginning of World War II. The U.S. Navy Seabee Museum has digitized its large collection of cruisebooks in order to make them available to our patrons and community.

Due to copyright issues, only cruisebooks created before 1978 are included online.
