Here with a military good-news story. Thanks to the Coffee or Die Internet web site Black Rifle Coffee the article by Navy Chief Petty Officer Matthew.
U.S. Navy SeaBee [ CB Construction Battalion] doing yeoman service during a time of the CV-19 virus pandemic.
"SEABEES BUILD MEDICAL FACILITY TO SUPPORT COVID-19 EFFORTS IN GUAM"
Naval ground units [CB's] continuing a proud tradition. As it was in the Second World War so as it is now seventy-five years later. Without one bit less of achievement or standard.
"Sailors assigned to Task Force 75.5 achieved the engineering initial operating capability of a 150-bed expeditionary medical facility as part of the Defense Department’s fight against COVID-19 on Naval Base Guam, April 25."
"Reaching engineering initial operating capability means the medical facility is structurally ready to perform its core medical care mission when medical staff arrives. Construction will continue until achieving full operating capability, meaning the facility is fully constructed and able to execute all of its designed tasks."
SeaBee units during the era of the Second World War [WW2] their ability nothing short of phenomenal. Able to convert an area of pristine untouched jungle into beach into a working port facility with adjacent airfield and do so within a period of two weeks.
Personnel comprising the SeaBee units during WW2 in civilian life masons, iron workers, carpenters, plumbers, electricians, heavy machine operators. Officers civil engineers. Well versed in their profession or trade prior to induction into the military. Standing tall CB.
AGAIN, AN OUTSTANDING TRADITION OF SERVICE CONTINUES AND GOOD FOR IT.
