In a recent press release, NAVFAC Commander and Chief of Civil Engineers Rear Adm. Kate Gregory stated what the celebration was about.
“As we celebrate our storied past and many accomplishments, let us always remember to honor those who have made the ultimate sacrifice and those wounded in service of our country. I am truly blessed to serve with each one of you. May god bless you and your families, the United States Navy, and our nation,” said Gregory.
Two Seabees were recognized for their outstanding achievements last year by the CEC/Seabee Historical Foundation.
This year is the 71st anniversary of the Seabees, the 146th anniversary of the Civil Engineer Corps, and the 171st anniversary of Naval Facilities Engineering Command.
