A total of 31 Naval Mobile Construction Battalion (NMCB) 3 Seabees attended the four-day Marine Corps Jungle Warfare Training Center (JWTC) course at Camp Gonsalves in Okinawa, Japan to sustain the battalion’s overall readiness as the Pacific Region’s primary forward-deployed construction battalion. The JWTC endurance course tests the Seabee’s will, stamina and the ability to work together as a team.
