This included 59 projects, 11 recurring missions, general engineering and camp maintenance in 35 countries and territories on four continents. The battalion continues to execute construction projects with the highest levels of quality, in any environment, said Lt. Cmdr. Kenneth Sowell, operations officer, NMCB 11. This not only speaks to the diligence but also the mobility of Naval Mobile Construction Battalion Eleven and their hard work.
