WASHINGTON (NNS) -- A new exhibit highlighting the Seabees' contributions to the Maritime Strategy made its debut at the Pentagon Aug. 16.

The display showcases the Seabees' role in humanitarian assistance, disaster response, and contingency operations.

"We now have a first-class exhibit that truly reflects the full range of operations that Seabees are involved in around the world today and the vital contributions they are providing in everything from combat missions to humanitarian efforts," said Rear Adm. Mark A. Handley, First Naval Construction Division commander. "It's great to know that many people in the Pentagon who lead our Navy will see this exhibit. It is a visual representation of the tremendous work Seabees are doing every day and around the world to support the Navy's Maritime Strategy."

Naval Facilities Engineering Command (NAVFAC) and 1st Naval Construction Division renovated an older Seabee exhibit in the same location, adding new artifacts, imagery and video to inform and educate viewers about the Seabees' capabilities and the Naval Construction Force's contingency construction work for the warfighter.

The exhibit is a permanent structure maintained by NAVFAC Headquarters, which also publishes Seabee Magazine.
