Frank Eugene SEABECK Retired United States Marine Corps Major Frank E. Seabeck passed away February 12, 2012. Frank son of John and Mary Seabeck was born on June 5 1917 in Sherman County, Rockville Nebraska. He came to Washington State in 1935 and graduated from the University of Puget Sound in 1942. During World War 2 Frank served bravely in the Pacific Theater with the United States Marine Corps. He hit the beach on Iwo Jima on the 19th of February 1945 and walked off the island on the 26th of March. He also served in Korea and spent time in Japan, Cuba, and Chile. His military honors include the Bronze Star and Purple Heart. Upon military retirement Frank was employed by the University of Washington working in community development. He guided and helped many communities statewide. The Bavarian themed village of Leavenworth was one of his many successful projects. He retired from the University of Washington after many years working at the undergraduate library. Frank enjoyed numerous hobbies and interests, including pheasant hunting, fishing, rock hounding, hiking, gardening, and traveling with family and friends. In later years he particularly enjoyed trips to Hawaii with his long time partner Jane Aslanian as well as many years at his winter home in Sun City West, AZ. In 1951 Frank was married to Marie Combs at St. Cecilia's Catholic Church on Bainbridge Island Winslow Wa. Together they raised 6 children: Patrick (dec.), Kevin (Leslie), Mary (Robert), Michael, Joseph, all of Seattle, and John (Kate) of La Connor, Wa. Also survived by grandson Nolan Li of Seattle.
Since September 1941, Camp Lejeune (luh-jern) has been the home of "Expeditionary Forces in Readiness", and throughout the years, it has become the home base for the II Marine Expeditionary Force, 2nd Marine Division, 2nd Marine Logistics Group and other combat units and support commands.
There are several major Marine Corps commands and one Navy command aboard Camp Lejeune. Some tenant commands include Marine Corps Base Camp Lejeune, II Marine Expeditionary Force, 2nd Marine Division, 2nd Marine Logistics Group, and the naval hospital to name a few. Marine Corps Base owns all the real estate, hosts entry-level and career-level formal schools and provides support and training for tenant commands; II Marine Expeditionary Force conducts operational planning for Fleet Marine Force commands; 2nd Marine Division is the ground combat element of II MEF; 2nd Marine Logistics Group is the combat service support element of II MEF; and 2nd Marine Air Wing, headquartered at Cherry Point, N.C., is the air combat element of II MEF. Additionally, the naval hospital provides primary medical care to service members and their families stationed at Camp Lejeune and Marine Corps Air Station New River.
Today, as in the past, Camp Lejeune's mission remains the same - to maintain combat-ready units for expeditionary deployment.
To help prepare warfighters for combat and humanitarian missions abroad, Camp Lejeune takes advantage of 156,000 acres, 11 miles of beach capable of supporting amphibious operations, 34 gun positions, 50 tactical landing zones, three state-of-the-art training facilities for Military Operations in Urban Terrain and 80 live fire ranges to include the Greater Sandy Run Training Area.
The base and surrounding community is home to an active duty, dependent, retiree and civilian employee population of approximately 170,000 people. The base generates almost $3 billion in commerce each year, coming from payrolls and contracts to support the structure required to train and equip our modern Marines.
Some services available aboard Camp Lejeune include: childcare, shopping, education, family support, hunting and fishing, dining, boating and swimming.
Some facilities on base include banks and credit unions, the commissary, the library, hobby shops, fitness centers, the beach, theaters and more.
From the supporting infrastructure, a tradition of excellence in doing day-to-day business has evolved. From environmental programs that include a state-of-the-art landfill and water treatment system to quality of life programs that ensure Marine families are taken care of, Camp Lejeune stands out as a superior military base.
Camp Lejeune is a seven-time recipient of the Commander-in-Chief's Award for Installation Excellence. This award recognizes the base on a Department of Defense level for effectively managing assets and developing quality programs to accomplish the mission of providing expeditionary forces in readiness.
The Marines, sailors, Coast Guardsmen and civilian Marines who provide for the efficient management of Camp Lejeune's assets strive to ensure even grander goals are realized in the future.
