    Members of the 80th Naval Construction Battalion, aboard a pontoon barge, prepare to land at Cat Island, pictured here in 1943. As the battalion landed, the rifle squads moved to the forward section of the barge with the machine guns in the Jeeps behind the men. The Advance Base Receiving Base utilized Cat Island during World War II for training Seabee personnel in military combat
