Atlantic Beach Elementary makes impression on former student in Texas

Atlantic Beach Elementary makes impression on former student in TexasNews StaffTue, 10/13/2020 - 03:27 pm David Seaver attending a previous King of the Hill surf contest. photo courtesy of David Seaver By Liza Mitchell, Contributor David Seaver hasnt lived in Atlantic Beach since he was a child and even then, it was only for a short time. But at 75, he still has fond memories of his time growing up on 16th Street and playing in the waves. Seaver and his older brother Albert Jr., now 77, both attended Atlantic Beach Elementary School.I am 75 years old and it is fairly common, I believe, for most of us to have vivid memories of our childhood as we age while forgetting where we left our car keys. So it is with me, said Seaver.A few weeks ago, I thought to myself, Wouldnt it be cool to have an Atlantic Beach Elementary t-shirt After a few minutes on the internet, he found the schools website and placed the order that would help create a new memory and a friendship.During a recent PTA board meeting to update members on the online sales of school merchandise, Anne Millaire could not help but notice the t-shirt order with a Texas shipping address. She reached out to Seaver and asked if he would be willing to share his memories of the school for the monthly newsletter.This year its particularly difficult to connect with the parents, teachers and students of ABE since we cannot be face to face with them. A story like yours would show the heartfelt community that we all love, she wrote. I am in total awe that the love for this pink school keeps on living. Thank you so much for your continued dedication and support to our school.A response came almost immediately. Thank you for your interest in my story. I had to decide if I should make up a really good story or just tell you the truth. Alas, the truth won out. I hope you are not disappointed, he said, adding, If I like the shirt, I might buy moreOver the next handful of days,Millaire and Seaver continued to correspond. And with each email, he revealed his cherished childhood memories of Atlantic Beach and the heroic saga of his fathers military experiences.Seaver was born in Jacksonville to parents Albert and Esther who first met in elementary school, the same year his father returned from World War II. His maternal grandparents lived in Neptune Beach. His paternal grandparents lived in Jacksonville.The family lived in Atlantic Beach on 16th Street near the intersection with Beach Avenue. Although I only completed the second grade and part of the third grade at Atlantic Beach Elementary, memories of living there have always been special to me, he said. We have introduced our children and grandchildren to the wonders of the beach that I played on as a child.His grandparents lived on Oak Street in Neptune Beach in a duplex that Seavers grandfather built. He also built the one next door and both houses are still there, he said.His grandmother was a founding member of Neptune Beach Baptist Church where he participated in Vacation Bible camps. Seavers family has visited the area every year as far back as he can remember and still attends Mothers Day services and the King of The Hill Surf Fest. In turn, Millaire shared some of her own story as new friends are inclined to do. By the way, my family and I live in Neptune Beach and we love the community and closeness to the beach. We live in a street where almost all the homes are still original - cinder block, built in the early sixties with flat roofs - your typical Florida house, she wrote. Atlantic Beach is going through a lot of changes. Houses are bulldozed by the dozens and brand new, three-story homes are built.Much of the same is happening in Texas, too, lamented Seaver. It was the start of the Korean War that brought his family to Texas when his father 1st Lt. Albert Seaver Sr., who was a bombardier on a B-29, received orders that he was stationed there. When he left for Okinawa in 1952, the family moved back to Atlantic Beach where Seaver was enrolled in Mrs. Wallers second grade class atAtlantic Beach Elementary.In January 1953, he remembered being in class when his grandmother came to the school to take him home. His mother Esther received a telegram informing her that her husbands B-29 had been shot down over North Korea and he was MIA. A day that I remember vividly, he said. My father spent the rest of the Korean War in a prison camp and I still have the Ocean Beach Reporter front page story when he returned home.Lt. Seaver was a bombardier aboard a B-29 that was shot down over North Korea while on a night bombing mission in January. He and 11 crew members bailed out and wound up in prison camp, but he still does not know what happened to the pilot of the plane.Describing his eight months in the PW camp, Lt. Seaver said: I wasnt harmed physically. It was all mental and psychological. They made all sorts of threats trying to get information out of me. They made so many that I didnt pay attention to them after a while, he recounted to the Ocean Reporter. Because I wouldnt tell them anything, they said I had a hostile attitude.The Ocean Beach Reporter article dated September 25, 1953 recounts the familys emotional reunion. Im still a little shaky and excited, said Air Force 1st Lt. Albert Seaver Sr. of Atlantic Beach, when he arrived home.But the airman, who was placed in solitary confinement for seven months because of his hostile attitude toward his captors, said some fishing loafing and swimming ought to bring him around to normal again.The book,The Yalu River Boys was written by Dan King, who is the son of one of the other prisoners,about the prison camp where their fathers were held. Seaver said his father was in a different part of the camp and is not in the books narrative. However, one of the gunners from my fathers crew was with Kings father in the camp and is mentioned quite a bit, he said. The Yalu River Boys is available on Amazon.Upon his return home, Seavers father remained in the United States Air Force USAF and the family moved often. David, too, followed tradition and served in the USAF, but through the years he has always come back to Florida. As a matter of fact, when I retired, I always thought I would live in Atlantic Beach, but when the time came 10 years ago, my father, brother, children and grandchildren all lived in Texas so it was not to be.In 2019, Atlantic Beach Elementary celebrated its 80th anniversary with a display of historic photos throughout the years. While she missed adding Seavers colorful story to the exhibit, Millaire plans on commemorating his ties to the school in November for a special Veterans Day newsletter.Seaver lost his mom Esther in 2000 and 1st Lt. Albert Seaver Sr. passed away in 2013. As always, Seaver will return to Atlantic Beach in May with his family where he will revisit those memories while creating new ones. I hope the parents and children living in Atlantic Beach and Neptune Beach appreciate what a special place it is. Im sure ABE continues to be a wonderful experience for students and parents alike, said Seaver.I remember the classroom. I also remember buyingstamps every week in class that we pasted in a folder. When the folder was full, we turned it in for a $25 savings bond. My memories of the school, Atlantic Beach and Neptune Beach have been built over a lifetime and are continuing. Section News
