Naval Mobile Construction Battalion 1 has been busy during its recent deployment.
Many of the Seabees' projects fall under the umbrella of growing relations with host nations through construction-related operations and humanitarian projects.
As depicted in several submitted photos, Seabees have spent time fabricating metal for projects in Yokosuka, Japan, and building a bathroom facility in Cambodia.
The crew stationed in Timor Leste has also assisted in building a new gate for the Bacora School.
The Okinawa (Japan) Crane Crew assisted neighboring Kadena Air Force Base with replacing their air conditioning unit Monday.
In between construction projects, Seabees across the locations have spent time playing with local school children.
NMCB 1 left Gulfport earlier this month on a unique global deployment for operations in Japan, Korea, Philippines, Cambodia, Timor-Leste, Guam and Diego Garcia. NMCB 1 also has Seabees stationed in Norfolk, Va.; China Lake, Calif.; San Clemente, Calif., and Gulfport.
The deployment is aligned with Secretary of the Navy Ray Mabus' four priorities of people, platforms, power and partnerships, Chief Petty Officer Kim Martinez, public affairs officer for NMCB 1, said.
