SEABEE is slang for C.B., or construction battalion.

the seabees were founded after the bombing of pearl harbor

because of the number of civillian workers that were killed. during

WWII seabees built large numbers of buildings and airstrips , but

mostly in the pacific theater

today seabees are as important as they ever were and continue to

serve as the ground pounders for the navy in many places around the

world such as Iraq,

"http://africa.answers.com" title="Africa">Africa, south

America, and Europe. the "bees" have done projects thought to be

impossable such as when they built a nuclear power plant in the

ARTIC coining one motto "the impossable only takes a little longer"

Seabees arealso known for getting the job done at all cost and

never giving up creating the latest motto "CAN DO, AND DONE"

PS:there are seven rates in the navy that come together to

create the greatest fighting contruction force in the world.
