On 15 September, 2007, NCBC Sea Cadets provided a Color Guard in tribute to a long time friend, the late CD-3 Earl Glasscock of Mobile Construction Battalion 6. Earl Glasscock answered his country’s call to duty and joined the Navy, where he served honorably and lived by the Seabee motto, “We build and we fight for peace with freedom.” After completing his tour of service and reentering civilian life, Glasscock decided to continue that close bond of friendship with other Seabees, and, in 1994, he and a group of like-minded former Seabees formed the MCB-6 Association.
When the original Davisville home of the Seabees was deactivated by the Navy in the 1990s, the MCB-6 Association provided the money to help keep the Seabee heritage alive and the Seabee Museum and Memorial Park become a reality. The memorial to CD-3 Glasscock was created by the members of SVA Island X-1 Davisville, a bronze plaque that was installed on a large stone in the middle of the six-acre facility, near the famous concrete Chapel in the Pines built by the Seabees in the early 1960s.
