And here's how it all began ...

Known today as United States Naval Mobile Construction Battalions, Seabees began the tradition of “Can Do ‐ Will Do ‐ Want To” in 1942. Originally created as the 58th Naval Construction Battalion in World War II on 26 December 1942, MCB 58 worked actively in multiple theatres including Okinawa and was decommissioned in May 1946 after four years of service.

In late 1965, the call went out again to the fleet and construction trades and MCB 58 was commissioned during the Vietnam War on 15 March 1966. The Great 58 Seabees conducted construction operations during a number of deployments until October 1969. Battalion 58 returned to Davisville, RI, and was decommissioned on 17 November 1969.

As long as there are conflicts and wars throughout the world, Seabees will continue to serve the United States and host countries with honor, expertise and efficiency.
