Navy Seabee geocoin - polished gold

 75,00 DKK
Quantity: 

The name Seabees was derived from their acronym "CB" which stands for Construction Battalion. "We Build, We Fight" is the translation of their official motto "Construimus Batuimus".

The Seabees were created in 1941 right after the attack on Pearl Harbor. Initial recruitment came from civilian construction employees since construction skill was a priority for the units. During WWII they performed their duties on more than six continents and over 300 islands. Construction started right after the Marines cleared the areas and they would build entire facilities such as warehouses, housing, roads, runways, bridges, and hospitals to name a few. These military compounds were essential for support to the Marines, Army, Navy, and other military units which would occupy the areas.

They fought and built in WWII, Korean War, Vietnam War, Gulf War, Afghanistan War, Iraqi War, and they provided critical support for numerous natural disaster areas. One of their current projects is constructing infrastructure in Iraq.
