US Naval Sea Cadet Corps, Quonset Point, RI

Seabee Memorial Dedication, Davisville, RI


On Friday, 31 July 2009, NCBC Sea and League Cadets joined with the Seabee Veterans of America, Island X-1 Davisville, and members of the 7th Naval Construction Regiment from Naval Station Newport to dedicate a memorial area, honoring Seabees who had made the supreme sacriface in Iraq and Afghanistan over the past decade. Over 200 Veterans, Seabees, dignitaries and guests attended this ceremony, which included a very symbolic and appropriate flag raising exercise over the memorial. This ceremony was done in two stages - the raising of the first flag to fly over the memorial was completed, and then that flag was retired and presented to the parents of U.S. Navy LTjg Francis L. Toner IV, who fell to an Afghan traitor on March 27, 2009. LTjg Toner's parents live in Narragansett, RI. Following that presentation, the Sea Cadets then raised the permanent flag over the memorial, quickly accompanied by the Seabee flag and the POW/MIA flag. The keynote address for the ceremony was given by Rear Admiral Scott A. Weikert, Deputy Commander of the 1st Naval Construction Division; RDML Weikert flew in from his headquarters in Norfolk, VA specifically for this event.
