What does the term 'SEABEE' mean?
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

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.
