March 5, 2017, marked a diamond anniversary for the U.S. Naval construction force known as the Seabees. The battalion motto, “We Build, We Fight,” represents the core mission responsibility of paving the way in and out of battle. For this milestone year, a custom logo was created in memory of all those who’ve served. To find out more about the Seabees, and the special celebration events planned for 2017, visit history.navy.mil/seabeemuseum.
