Volunteers needed for Seabee Deployment/Family Day

Good afternoon everyone!

On Saturday, July 11th, a Seabee unit from Lakehurst NAES will be holding a Deployment/Family Day and we're looking for a few good volunteers ;)

The event will be held in two parts: one will be from 8:30 am to 12:30 pm and consist of serving coffee, cake etc. to the families coming in who will be getting their deployment briefings. The second part of the day will run from 12:30 pm to 4:30 pm - that will be the BBQ fun of the day. The crowd expectations are around 400 people.

For those of you who are unaware, Lakehurst has a notorious place in New Jersey history as the site of the Hindenberg disaster, and our SeaBees (or Construction Battalions) have had their own place in our country's history stretching back to World War II. They build bases, air strips, roads - you get the idea. Their unofficial motto is "Can do"!

If you are able to assist in any part of the day or the entire day, please let me know. We'd love to see you there. If you can help, I'd need the following information if you do not have military ID:

1) Name of the driver of the vehicle
2) Driver's license number
3) Names of all others in the vehicle
4) Make and model of vehicle

Thank you everyone for all you do!!!
