This Week in Seabee History (October 14 – 20)

This week in Seabee History-Seabees cross train in the skills of their colleagues and prepare for deployment with Seabee Technical Assistant Teams (STAT), later called Seabee Teams. These teams consisted of men specially selected from Naval Mobile Construction Battalions to provide direct technical assistance to friendly nations throughout the world. The teams proved exceptionally efficient in rural development programs and earned reverence as the “Navy’s Peace Corps.” (Photo courtesy of U.S. Navy Seabee Museum)
