An event every year that begins at 12:00 am on day 5 of March, repeating indefinitely
United States Naval Construction Battalions, better known as the Seabees, form the Naval Construction Force (NCF) of the United States Navy. Their nickname is a heterograph of the first initials “C.B.” from the words Construction Battalion. Depending upon the use of the word, “Seabee” can refer to one of three things: all the enlisted personnel in the USN’s occupational field-7 (OF-7), all officers and enlisted assigned to the Naval Construction Force, or the U.S. Naval Construction Battalions (CBs).
