    Seeking records of 12th, 58th, 87th and 147th Naval Construction Battalions in WWII

    Ronald Green Newbie

      Conducting research on any records to include muster rolls etc on my Grandfather;


      Name:  Albert C Woodmansee Jr.

      Rank: Gunners Mate 1st Class

      Gender:  Male

      Birth Date:  7 Dec 1915

      Death Date:  30 Jul 2000

      Branch 1:  NAVY

      Inducted Date: 30 Sep 1943

      Entry on Active Duty Date 1:  6 Oct 1943

      Release Date 1:  18 Dec 1945


      Units Assigned from his DD214

      Construction Battalion Williamsburg, VA (Camp Peary)

      89th NCB

      12th NCB

      Naval Construction Maintenance Unit 621

      Naval Construction Maintenance Unit 625

      58th NCB

      147th CB


      in 26 months and 13 days, he was bounced around 7 units, was that common?  I've found the yearbooks for the 12th, 58th and 147th but he is not listed in any of those unofficial rosters.  Fold3 was useless in finding anything except his grave registration


      Prior to entering the Navy, he was a civil servant crane operator working at Quonset point RI


      Any help locking down authoritative data would be appreciated.
