Construction Electrician 3rd Class Jordan Lund, right, cuts plywood while Builder 3rd Class Brandon Shortridge holds the plywood to provide support. Both are assigned to Naval Mobile Construction Battalion (NMCB) 5. Seabees from NMCB 5 make up the construction civic action detail (CCAD) Philippines whose current project is renovating a masonry classroom building for the Aplaya Elementary School. Seabees conduct CCAD operations like this one in order to demonstrate U.S. commitment, develop enduring relationships, improve public infrastructure for the delivery of essential services, and strengthen local institutions with host and partner nations around the world. The Seabees have established a good rapport with the teachers, students and locals of the entire neighborhood near the project site.
