    I AM SO HAPPY TO SEE THE SEABEES AT IWO AND VERY MUCH INCLUDED IN THIS MONTH'S LEATHERNECK MAGAZINE! THIS I NEVER SAW THIS BEFORE!
    This article from the Leatherneck archives describes how 23rd Marines and Seabees attached with the Marines hit Yellow Beaches 1 and 2 and fought to move men and equipment off the beaches while encountering fierce resistance from the Japanese.
