The Seabees/Civil Engineer Corps trace their origins back to World War II and since then their diverse missions have sent them to the far reaches of Antarctica to conflicts including Korea, Vietnam and the current missions in the Middle East.  Often operating under fire, the Seabees build military bases and outposts, roads, airstrips, bridges and other infrastructure to support America's troops in battle and U.S. peace keeping forces around the globe.  The soon to be completed, 35,000 sq.ft. Seabee Museum will include exhibits celebrating the storied history, selfless work and heroic spirit of the Nation's Seabees.
