U.S. Naval Construction Force

United states naval construction battalions, better known as the navy Seabees, form the U.S. naval construction force. The Seabee nickname is a heterograph of the first letters «C B» from the words Construction Battalion.

The Seabees had a second Logo. It was of a shirtless constructionman holding a sledge hammer with a rifle strapped across his back standing upon the words «Construimus Batuimus USN» («We build, We fight» USN).
