The Seabees with NMCB-5 executed missions from 13 detail sites across the Indo-Pacific and participated in several joint exercises, such as Exercise Amphitrite Galvanic and Exercise Neptune's Forager.
"We arrived here in Okinawa and throughout the Pacific with highly motivated and well-trained Sailors ready to accomplish our mission by 'Succeeding Together," said Cmdr. Andrew Olsen, NMCB-5's commanding officer. "The men and women of [NMCB-5] continued to bridge the gap between sea and shore by supporting construction at the littorals for warfighter readiness. You have remained dedicated to being a paramount stand-in naval construction force for the Indo-Pacific region."
In the Marshall Islands, they built a police substation checkpoint to help the Marshallese support the Kwajalein Atoll Local Government — taking the opportunity to teach construction skills to recent high school graduates working at the Republic of Marshall Island's National Training Council.
