Seabees from NMCB 133 Task Force Anchor discuss project progress, Sept. 25, Camp Krutke, Afghanistan. Seabees from Naval Mobile Construction Battalion (NMCB) 133's Task Force Anchor constructed additional force protection measures around the Camp Bastion-Camp Leatherneck compound, Sept. 25. Working day and night for nearly 96 hours, five dozers and two excavators protected by static security teams moved earth to construct a formidable wall more than four kilometers long. Before we arrived there appeared to be a flat, easy access from a road to the perimeter, said Equipment Operator 1st Class Michal Shafer, NMCB 133. What we re building should definitely strengthen the force protection. Despite long hours with fatigue and heat in full battle rattle, we were able to change the landscape to achieve the grade and slope necessary. It was hard work but Seabees have to be flexible, said Shafer. NMCB 133's Task Force Anchor is currently deployed to Afghanistan in support of Task Force Empire, providing engineering support to coalition forces.
