BeeCam: NMCB 133 Conducts FTX

Naval Mobile Construction Battalion 133 conducted a Field Training Exercise (FTX) at Camp Shelby, Miss. FTX allows the battalion to hone its skills in various areas. This evolution will afford the battalion the opportunity to assess its operational and administrative strong points, as well as areas of improvement. After tactical feedback and the application of correctional measures, the battalion will enter their final evaluation portion of the exercise, which if successfully executed, will certify the battalion for deployment.
