U.S. Navy Underwater Construction Team:
In the Republic of Korea
U.S. Navy Seabees from Underwater Construction Team (UCT) 2 spent a couple of weeks in Jinhae, Republic of Korea (ROK), training in underwater construction techniques with their ROK navy counterparts as part of Exercise Foal Eagle 2017.
Sailors from UCT 2's Construction Dive Detachment Charlie (CDDC) are traveling around the Pacific on a six-month deployment, and they were in Jinhae to conduct measurements for a future project and to share some of their knowledge with the ROK sailors.
"ROK UCT is a brand new unit that just stood up," said Utilitiesman 2nd Class Eric Martin. "So we've been working on underwater construction ... like underwater welding, underwater cutting, bathymetric surveys and side scan surveys."
