    DIEGO GARCIA, U.K. - The commander of Navy Facilities Engineering Command (NAVFAC) Far East, Capt. Don Chandler, visited Diego Garcia to tour sites with the new contractor G4S San Juan during a major contract renewal the week of Jan. 15.

    During his visit, he held a luncheon lunch with all of the Seabees currently on the island. These included: Public Works, Self Help, and Seabees from Naval Mobile Construction Battalions 5 and 74.

    At the time of his arrival, the two battalions were conducting a turnover for two major quality of life projects military, civilian and contract employees working and residing on the island.

    During the lunch Chandler requested to tour the contractor living unit currently under construction. Seabees from both battalions accompanied Chandler during the tour of the current project site and also showed him the future location for the next CLU which is set to begin construction soon.

    Seabee battalions perform these projects as part of construction readiness operations to learn new engineering skills and maintain core proficiencies while enhancing infrastructure on military bases worldwide.
