“Seabees” of 14th Naval Mobile Construction Battalion, from Jacksonville, Fla., built furniture and personal spaces inside the newly constructed Warrior Recovery Center, Bagram Air Field, Afghanistan, Dec. 27. The unit sought the project to help their fellow service members. The benches, wall partitions, and wooden interiors will give the service members a more relaxed environment near the Craig Joint Theater Hospital. The WRC is managed by the 219th Medical Detachment (Combat Operational Stress Control), teaching classes, providing group and individual counseling, and giving service members tools to manage stress in the deployed environment. The WRC programs in both Kandahar and Bagram work to return to duty more than 90 percent of patients who walk through the door.
