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.
(32)

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, the command has continually participated in major amphibious operations and exercises. When Naval Beach Group TWO was established in 1948, the 105th NCB became a component of that command and was re-designated Amphibious Construction Battalion TWO in 1950. Between December 1972 and 1975, PHIBCB TWO was a component of Naval Inshore Warfare Command following the disestablishment 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 World War 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 and more recently, Hurricane Katrina and Operation IRAQI FREEDOM, and Operation UNIFIED RESPONSE.

This resolution of the Continental Congress marked the establishment of what is now the United States Navy.

"Resolved, That a swift sailing vessel, to carry ten carriage guns, and a proportionable number of swivels, with eighty men, be fitted, with all possible despatch, for a cruise of three months, and that the commander be instructed to cruize eastward, for intercepting such transports as may be laden with warlike stores and other supplies for our enemies, and for such other purposes as the Congress shall direct.

That a Committee of three be appointed to prepare an estimate of the expence, and lay the same before the Congress, and to contract with proper persons to fit out the vessel.

Resolved, that another vessel be fitted out for the same purposes, and that the said committee report their opinion of a proper vessel, and also an estimate of the expence."

ACB2 Sailors, Friends and Family,

Today is September 11, 2020 …it is 0900 eastern standard time as I write this….19 years ago, at 0846 Flight 11 crashed into the north face of the North Tower, then at 0903, Flight 175 crashed into the south face of the South Tower. Yesterday I was talking with several other sailors and we all shared stories about where we were on that day, home, deployed, some still in school, and the impact it had on our lives. We remembered the shock and confusion of that moment as well as the commitment and determination that rose from the ashes of the tragedy and loss. We recalled the pride we felt as our country united and rallied and stood fast in the face of hatred and fear. As President Bush said on that day, “Terrorist attacks can shake the foundations of our biggest buildings, but they cannot touch the foundation of America. These acts shatter steel, but they cannot dent the steel of American resolve”.

Let us never forget the thousands of innocent people who lost their lives that day in the Twin Towers, the Pentagon, in Shanksville, PA or the first responders who went into the fire and smoke and never came out. Let us continue to be grateful that there are Americans from all walks of life and all corners of this great country who are willing to stand up and serve to defend our country and our communities. #NeverForget, #September11, #LetsRoll, #SeabeesCanDo, #GoNavy

Sincerely,
CAPT Jeff Lengkeek

PHIB TWO making history...on this date...

Today in Seabee History!

On 15 July 1958, Amphibious Construction Battalion TWO (PHIBTWO) assisted Marines with landing at Beirut, Lebanon. The U.S. government was asked by the Lebanese government for military aid, and to assist in the establishment and maintenance of order in the wake of dissidents attempt to overthrow the government.

In July 1958, the U.S. government sent amphibious units of the 6th Fleet to assist over 1800 Marines disembark in Beirut, Lebanon. Seabees with PHIBTWO supplied causeway teams to provide pontoons for troops, vehicles and supplies to pass to and from LCUs. They also provided beach salvage teams which assisted with foundering landing craft, clearing vehicles stalled in the sand, and also improving overall beach traffic handling.

Sailors, Shipmates, Family and Friends of ACB TWO,

Let me start off with a HUGE thanks to everyone who supported the Change of Command last week. Although we couldn’t do the full ceremony, I know how much work went into last week and I appreciate the way ACB2 rallied to send off CAPT Walton in style and provide me such a warm and professional welcome. I hope you all take a few minutes to watch the video from the ceremony. I wanted to share with you a few things I highlighted during my remarks at the ceremony:

First, no one is successful on their own. I am extremely grateful to a long list of exceptional mentors and leaders I’ve had the privilege to work for throughout my career; former COs, Command Master Chiefs, CPOs, Sailors (AC and RC), civilians, contractors, shipmates, family and friends. I promised them and you that I will work my hardest to live up to their and your expectations of me as a CO.

Second…my philosophy….it’s not rocket science, it is simply, ”Mission First, Sailors Always”. We will execute every mission with precision and zeal and we will make sure our sailors have the tools, training and leadership to be successful. We will work with a sense of urgency and purpose to confront the challenges of an ever changing world and a renewed great power competition. And we will build on the legacy of those who have come before us. We will be trained and ready and we will be an integrated, inclusive team of active and reserve sailors ready to execute whatever mission we are assigned with skill and pride.

Third…Safety and Professionalism…as we saw in the fire on the USS Bonhomme Richard(LHD 6) yesterday in San Diego, the Navy is a dangerous business and we never know when we will be called on to put our skills and training in to action to fight our ship. We will be the ready, professional sailors the Navy and our Nation expects of us 24/7. There is no place in our Navy or in ACB TWO for any type of harassment, hazing or unprofessional conduct. Our Navy expects more of us…we will live up to that expectation and set the example for others to follow.

There will be no shortage of challenges thrown at us in the future. Some will certainly be more unpredictable than others, but we will continue hold fast to what makes our navy and this unit great. Your skill, grit, innovation and hard work, and your fighting spirit and will to win will see us through any challenge. It is truly my great honor to continue to serve our navy and our nation as your Commanding Officer. I look forward to the days ahead as we write the next chapter in the history of this great command.

Sincerely,
CAPT Jeff Lengkeek
Commanding Officer
Amphibious Construction Battalion TWO

Gatorbee of the Week Vol. 7

UT1 Michael Boyle

This week’s GOW is UT1, who, with some advice from his father -a Marine Corps Gunny Sgt.- joined the Navy because of the plentiful education opportunities available. Boyle decided on being a Seabee since he was pursuing Civil Engineering before joining. UT1 has been integral to our more recent operations such as our ELCAS build and MPFEX camp setup.
To say that the last 12 years have been rewarding would be an understatement, said Boyle.

“The proudest moment of my career so far, besides the birth of my son, was being chosen as the PHIBCB 2 nominee for the Marvin G. Shields award for FY19...it was an honor to be considered for such a prestigious award in the Seabee community.”
