Ask Eric Geibel anything...
Q: Just wondering…where did you come up with the inspiration to write about the Seabee's? I'm a former Seabee and love the song.
A: Thank you for asking about the inspiration for the song Navy Seabee. My father was a Seabee with NMCB 11, OIC Bravo Company during Viet Nam. He served with Marvin Shields who was KIA at the time. A few years ago, my father asked me to write something as a tribute to Marvin Shields for a Seabee Ball and recommissioning of NMCB 11 in Biloxi, MS. So, I started thinking about what it meant to be a Seabee. The opening line Building Bridges and the Roads that Pave the Way in my mind had two meanings. It litterally was building bridges and roads, but subjectively it was winning friends and influencing people in communities around the world. And then it was pretty simple to think about the brotherhood and the fact that there is nothing I would rather be than a Navy Seabee even though I personally never got that chance. This song is my way of giving back.
