It is with a heavy heart that I write to share with you the devastating
news
that we have lost 7 members of our U.S. Navy Seabee family who were
mobilized as members of Naval Mobile Construction Battalion 14,
headquartered in Jacksonville, FL. These brave Seabees paid the
ultimate
price of freedom in two separate incidents in support of Operation Iraqi
Freedom as follows:

On Friday, 30 APR 04, two of our fellow Seabees were killed and 6 were
wounded in action while conducting operations against anti-coalition
forces
in the Al Anbar Province of Iraq. They were all members of a convoy
that
hit an Improvised Explosive Device (IED). Our Fallen Seabee Angels who
gave
their life in the defense of freedom are:

Steel Worker Petty Officer 2nd Class Jason B. Dwelley, age 31, from
Apopka,
FL, a member of the Orlando Detachment

Equipment Operator Petty Officer 3rd Class Christopher M. Dickerson, age
33,
from Eastman, GA, a member of the Augusta Detachment

On Sunday, 2 MAY 04, the military installation in the Al Anbar Province
where some of the Seabees from NMCB 14 were located was hit by indirect
fire. Three of our Seabees were killed in action while two additional
members died of wounds they received in the attack. An additional 28
Seabees were wounded and survived. Please join me in praying for their
quick and complete recovery. Our 5 departed Seabee souls who gave the
ultimate sacrifice are:

Builder Petty Officer 2nd Class Michael C. Anderson, age 36, from
Daytona
Beach, FL, a member of Orlando Detachment

Equipment Operator Petty Officer 2nd Class Trace W. Dossett, age 37,
from
Orlando, FL, a member of the Orlando Detachment

Construction Mechanic Petty Officer 2nd Class Scott R. McHugh, age 33,
from
Boca Raton, FL, a member of the West Palm Beach Detachment

Builder Petty Officer 2nd Class Robert B. Jenkins, age 35, from Stuart,
FL,
a member of the West Palm Beach Detachment

Steel Worker Petty Officer 3rd Class Ronald A. Ginther, age 37, from
Auburndale, FL, a member of the Tampa Detachment

All seven of our NMCB 14 Fallen Seabee Angels are now back on U.S. soil.
They were met at Dover AFB by our Chief of Civil Engineers, Rear Admiral
Michael Loose along with a Navy Honor Guard from Washington, DC. As the
details of funeral arrangements become available, they will be passed
along
through the chain of command.

Each of these brave Seabees were on the front line doing what Seabees do
best. As the words on our Seabee Memorial at Arlington National
Cemetery
say, "With Compassion for Others, We Build, We Fight, for Peace with
Freedom." Our Fallen Seabee Angels gave the ultimate sacrifice so that
others might have a chance to grow and prosper in freedom. Let us
always
remember these beloved Seabees and their families as we grieve their
loss
together. The Seabee family they left behind remains strong. Let us
pledge
to never forget them by providing anchorage to all members of our Seabee
family as we continue to serve with Honor, Courage, and Commitment.
