On March 5th, 1942, the Seabees were born and have lived by their moto, Construmus Batumius, or We Build, We Fight ever since.


Our Mission

The Hampton Roads Seabee Ball Committee is an all-volunteer non-profit organization that was established to coordinate the annual Seabee Ball and raise money to help reduce entry cost to junior personnel and their spouses/significant others.  As is the case with other military balls, the Seabee Ball is not a Navy sponsored event – it is funded through private contributions and donations.  The Hampton Roads Seabee Ball Committee is dedicated to bringing together past and present Seabees and CEC Officers to promote comradery and celebrate our proud history.

The difficult we do at once. The impossible takes a little bit longer.
