Sailors from from Naval Mobile Construction Battalion (NMCB) 1 Detail Okinawa participate in the Ekiden Relay Race with sailors from Commander, Fleet Activities Okinawa, several of its tenant commands and the Japan Self-Defense Force. The friendship building event hosted 24 teams where participants, grouped into five-man teams, ran 1.45 miles each. NMCB 1 is currently deployed to several countries in the Pacific area of operations and three sites in the United States. Aligned with Secretary of the Navy Ray Mabus' four priorities of people, platforms, power and partnerships, NMCB 1 will deliver the Navy's forward presence through its work with several host nations at its Construction Civic Action Details in PACOM and will continue to conduct construction operations in NORTHCOM.
