Overview
--37th Naval Construction Battalion-- Care has been taken to render the best copy possible. However, quality of this book is based on the condition of the original, and current technology available. Commissioned at Camp Endicott, Davisville, R. I., on Oct. 28, 1942, the 37th Battalion was transferred to the army base, Norfolk, VA., Dec. 14, and two days later embarked for Noumea, New Caledonia, where they arrived Jan. 18, 1943. The outfit moved in two echelons to Guadalcanal, arriving Sept. 1 and Sept. 3. 1943. Leaving Guadalcanal in three echelons, the first echelon arrived at Ondonga, New Georgia, Sept. 12. The second and third echelons got there Sept. 13 and 15. Moving again in February 1944 in three echelons, the outfit arrived on Green Island, Feb. 15, 19 and 24, 1944. Bound for home, the battalion embarked on Oct. 4, 1944, and arrived at San Francisco on Oct. 26. In July 1945 the 37th began its second overseas tour of duty by sailing for Okinawa and were there at the war's end. Cruise Books are Informal and nonofficial in nature (they sometimes are compared to college yearbooks) These publications offer insights into the daily activities and attitudes from the perspective of a unit's crew. Cruise books dating from the World War II years are rare today, but they are of special note because of the intense interest by veterans, writers, and scholars in a conflict that involved the entire American nation and engulfed most of the rest of the world. Care has been taken to render the best copy possible. However, quality of this book is based on the condition of the original, and current technology available.
