Seabees build school in Timor-Leste

A local Dili child performs his own quality control inspection on his new school being built by Seabees from Naval Mobile Construction Battalion 3's construction civic action detail in Timor-Leste. 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 nine details to perform critical construction projects in remote island areas such as Timor-Leste, Tonga, Cambodia and the Philippines. The teams are also conducting operations in Atsugi, Yokosuka and Okinawa, Japan, Chinhae, Republic of Korea and China Lake, Calif. (Photo Taken by Builder Constructionman Nathan M.
