Tell Me Your Story: Ex-Seabee Sprengel salutes military history

May 20, 2012

NORTH KINGSTOWN – They’re hard at work clearing and grading land at the Seabee Museum, preparing to build a larger space to accommodate the donations of veterans who want to share their personal history as wartime engineer-soldiers.
When plans are approved for the 60-foot-wide by 100-foot-long by 24-foot high structure, Jack Sprengel, a Vietnam-era vet who is the museum’s curator, plans to donate his entire collection of militaria. He estimates the treasure trove contains at least 1,000 pieces, probably more.
