The Navy's Construction Battalion (CB - SeaBee) 74 has been deactivated. You'd think with all the difficulties facing the Marines as regards amphibious assaults and the movement of supplies across the beach that the Navy would want more SeaBee units, not less. Along the same line, if the Marines are serious about conducting expeditionary air warfare using F-35B's based out of remote, austere fields then you'd think SeaBee units would be highly valued. Finally, although ComNavOps deplores humanitarian assistance missions, the Navy is firmly committed to them and, again, SeaBee units are quite useful in this role.
Hmmm ........ The litany of questionable decisions continues.
