This short video shows the kind of work that our U.S. Navy Seabees and Army engineers are doing to help improve the daily lives of people around the world.
I like this story for how it shows the ability of our U.S. military to bring its skills and dedication to the building up of local cultures in the world.
What this video shows is that simple improvements to local infrastructure in places like the Federated States of Micronesia can make a huge difference in the quality of life.
It is often the simple things that make all the difference for many people around the world. What these Seabees and Army engineers are providing for villagers in Micronesia is practical improvements to their infrastructure and school buildings, but they are also building positive relations between the United States and foreign countries.

They are projecting another vision of American strength to people in need.
We can be proud of what these Navy Seabees and Army engineers are doing in our name. This kind of “Can Do” is a powerful asset and is as much-needed as our military might in defense of freedom.
We send our sincerest thanks to all who have served in the U.S. Navy Seabees. Your motto “Can Do” is expressed powerfully both in times of war and in times of peace.
