'55?: Beeman Center

Beeman Center is the Enlisted Club and was named in memory of Chief Pharmacist's Mate Arthur C. Beeman who was awarded the Bronze Star Medal
posthumously. Beeman lost his life instantly when struck by machine gun fire on the bridge of AMBERJACK (SS-219) on her third war patrol in
the Southwest Pacific in February 1943. Beeman had gone topside to aid an officer injured earlier by the same gunfire. AMBERJACK was lost in the encounter.
