      IN WWII served with the 20th, 58th and 19th Naval Construction Battalions; he was a MM 3rd Class Navy Petty Officer:

      20th Naval Construction Battalion from September 1942 to 1944: This deployment of the new unit took them from San Pedro CA to Noumea, New Caledonia, then on to Townsville Australia. From there they were part of the invasion of the Kiriwina and Woodlark Islands where they built the airdrome and 30 miles of roads. Segments of the unit were sent to the Russell Islands.

      The 58th Naval Construction Battalion was brought to life 26 December 1942, during World War II, at Camp Allen in Norfolk, Virginia. They first deployed to Guadalcanal, and the 58th was the first Construction Battalion to land with the Marines in the initial assault on Vella LaVella, Northern Solomons.
      Later they deployed to Banika, Los Negros and Okinawa where, in addition to numerous construction projects, they kept the Yontan Air-field open during 261 enemy raids, which allowed Major "Pappy" Boyington and his F4U Corsairs of the famed VMF 214 Black Sheep Squadron to bring the war to the Japanese. With the end of World War II in sight, the 58th redeployed home and was eventually de-commissioned in May 1946 after four years of continuous outstanding service.

      (3/1/2011; Bud was a very powerful man...may not have appeared so but was. I have seen him grab the front wheel of a car (no power steering those days) and turn the wheels with it sitting on the ground, just so he could look at the inside linkage and wheel, believe it or not. The steering wheel inside would just turn (naturally) as he moved the wheels. Later when "thought" I was a pretty good horse I tried that and all that would happen was my hands slip off the wheel !
