A local Timor-Leste resident Salvador “Ricky” Dos Santos, a volunteer helping Seabees from Naval Mobile Construction Battalion 3’s construction civic action detail in Timor-Leste, paints a window sill of a new school the team is building for the local Dili community. 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. Carrasco/RELEASED)
