NMCB 3 Pacific region deployment

Utilitiesman 2nd Class Juliet Wilson from Naval Mobile Construction Battalion (NMCB) 3's Timor-Leste Civic Construction Action Detail (CCAD) hands a clean water filter to a resident of the Ahisaun Disability Foundation's home for disabled youth. Three Seabees from the Timor-Leste CCAD repaired the home's degraded water filtration system, providing the 23 residents with clean water for cooking and drinking. The CCAD's mission is to execute engineering civic assistance projects, conduct formal training with the host nation and perform community relations events to help enhance shared capabilities and improve the country's social welfare. One of the first battalions commissioned during World War II, NMCB 3's legacy stands strong in its ability to build and fight anywhere in the world as either a full battalion or as a group of autonomous detachments, simultaneously completing critical engineering and construction missions. For this deployment, NMCB 3 has split into 9 details to perform critical construction projects in remote island areas such as Timor-Leste, Tonga, Cambodia and the Philippines. The teams will also conduct operations in Atsugi, Yokosuka and Okinawa, Japan; Chinhae, Republic of Korea and China Lake, Calif. The Naval Construction Force is a vital component of the U.S. Maritime Strategy. They provide deployable battalions capable of providing disaster preparation and recovery support, humanitarian assistance and combat operations support. NMCB 3 provides combatant commanders and Navy component commanders with combat-ready warfighters capable of general engineering, construction and limited combat engineering across the full range of military operations.
