The Bureau of Yards and Docks created the Seabee News Service, a semi-monthly news service, during World War II in order to encourage battalions to publish their own newspapers and assist those already publishing by proviiding content. The purpose of the news service was to acquaint Seabees both abroad and at home with the accomplishments of their comrades and the vital work being done by battalions throughout the world.
