Amphibious Construction Battalion TWO

Amphibious Construction Battalion TWO Welcome to the Official U.S. Navy Amphibious Construction Battalion TWO Command fan page; operated by PHIBCB TWO Public Affairs Team. Amphibious Construction Battalion TWO (PHIBCB TWO) traces its roots to the pontoon operation battalions of World War II that participated in every major amphibious assault, beginning with the invasion of Sicily.

By the use of pontoon causeways, barge-mounted cranes and pontoon ferries, these battalions gave the amphibious forces the ability to quickly off-load the large quantities of troops and cargo needed to assure victory. Since its commissioning as the 105th Naval Construction Battalion (NCB) on 14 July 1943, under the operational control of Commander, Amphibious Training Command, U.S. Atlantic Fleet,

A message from the Skipper:

ACB2 Seabees, Friends and Family,

Born out of necessity in WWII, Seabees quickly rose to fame building and fighting in Europe and the Pacific and have been involved with every major conflict and contingency since. ACB2 started as the 105th Naval Construction Battalion and then took on the pontoon and barge mission, bringing critical supplies and materiel across the beach, eventually becoming ACB2 in 1950.
That same mix of hands on skills, dedication to country and relentless determination to accomplish the mission that led to victory in WWII is alive and well in today’s generation of Seabees. I am impressed every day with the professionalism, spirit of innovation and desire to serve that I see in the men and women of ACB2. I am incredibly proud to serve with each and every one of you as we stand the watch and represent our Nation, our Navy and Amphibious Construction Battalion TWO.
And although we can’t celebrate with a traditional Seabee Ball this year, we can still have some cake! Happy 79th Birthday to the U.S. Navy Seabees!

Sincerely,
CAPT Jeff Lengkeek
Commanding Officer

This is Our Story

Amphibious Construction Battalion TWO (PHIBCB TWO) traces its roots to the pontoon operation battalions of World War II that participated in every major amphibious assault, beginning with the invasion of Sicily. By the use of p0ntoon causeways, barge-mounted cranes and pontoon ferries, these battalions gave the amphibious forces the ability to quickly off-load the large quantities of troops and cargo needed to assure victory. Since its commissioning as the 105th Naval Construction Battalion (NCB) on July 14, 1943, under the operational control of Commander, Amphibious Training Command, U.S. Atlantic Fleet, the command has continually participated in major amphibious operations and exercises. In 1950, the 105h NCB became a component command of the recently established Naval Beach Group TWO and was re-designated to Amphibious Construction Battalion TWO. Between December 1972 and 1975, PHIBCB TWO was a component of Naval Inshore Warfare Command following the decommissioning of Naval Beach Group TWO. However, PHIBCB TWO once again became a component of Naval Beach Group TWO when it was re-commissioned in 1975. PHIBCB TWO has distinguished itself in a myriad of operations since War World II, including the 1958 crisis in Lebanon, the Multi-National Peace keeping Force in Lebanon from August 1982, to February 1984, the October 1983 rescue of American citizens in Grenada, Operation SHARP EDGE in Liberia in 1991, Operations DESERT SHIELD and DESERT STORM in 1992, Operation UPHOLD DEMOCRACY in Haiti in 1994, disaster recovery efforts for TWA Flight 800 and Egypt Air Flight 990, Hrricane Katrina, Operation IRAQI FREEDOM and Operation UNIFIED RESPONSE, and more recently with Hurricane Irma and Maria relief efforts to devastated areas of Puerto Rico, Virgin Islands and Key West.
