The Seabees Memorial commemorates those who served in the US Naval Construction Battalions and their "Can Do" attitude. Members of these battalions, known as "Seabees," design, construct, and defend the infrastructure essential for military operations.
The Seabees were created in 1942, shortly after the bombing of Pearl Harbor. The Seabees have constructed thousands of bases, camps, hospitals, piers, miles of roads, and airstrips around the globe. These engineering feats were accomplished at great speed and frequently in hostile environments. The Seabees also lend their construction expertise to rebuilding areas affected by natural disasters.
