- Builders of the Apra Harbor Glass Breakwater, Guam, -

The largest single SEABEE Battalion project undertaken during WWII.

These were amazing men who did amazing things!

The Harbor & Breakwater Project at Guam has been compared to building the Great Pyramid of Egypt , or the Panama Canal, by modern engineers.  This feat of WWII engineering and construction was done in far less time than it  took to just 'consider' building the prior two historic structures.

76th Bees labored to defeat the enemy in the Pacific.

What they did was SECRET and Strategic.
