“If we learn nothing else from this tragedy, we learn that life is short and there is no time for hate.” — Sandy Dahl, wife of Flight 93 pilot Jason Dahl.

Today is a powerful reminder of just how quickly life can be taken from us. We plan, we train, and we prepare for every possible challenge that we can imagine facing. Even then, we’re still faced with the unexpected. On this day of remembrance, 19 years ago, accounts of unexpected courage shined through the darkness. There was an equities trader who ran in with NYC firefighters to aid rescue efforts, he saved more than a dozen people. The passengers of Flight 93 disrupted terrorist efforts and prevented an even greater loss of life in the capitol. Two Marines donned their uniforms, charged into the rubble, and rescued two trapped survivors. Two American Airlines 11 flight attendants were able to relay information discretely about the attackers that led to their capture. Two unarmed F-16 pilots that had scrambled that day were ready to sacrifice themselves in their aircraft without question. There are several more stories of courage in the face of terror 19 years ago, several more I’m sure are unrecorded.

These stories also remind us of just how bound we are as a nation. The unity that had ignited on that day erupted with an unforgettable force. A force that’s in the belly of all of us. No matter how much our lives require our focus, we will never forget, we will be ready to remind those of our unity.

Welcome Home, NMCB-5 Seabees!

Command Master Chief Martin Laurie leads the last group of U.S. Navy Seabees from Naval Mobile Construction Battalion (NMCB) 5 who returned home to Naval Base Ventura County July 23. NMCB-5 transferred authority of Naval Construction Force tasking in Guam to NMCB-3 on board Camp Convington in Santa Rita, June 29.

NMCB-5 deployed across the Indo-Pacific region conducting high-quality construction to support U.S. and partner nations to strengthen partnerships, deter aggression, and enable expeditionary logistics and naval power projection.

NMCB-5 wrapped up an extended deployment due to the unforeseen COVID-19 pandemic, which created a delay in efforts to return home due to stringent local, national and international protective travel restrictions starting in late March. (Photos courtesy of Adriane Tejada)

Hey Seabees, we know it's frustrating having all sorts of questions that need answering. Big Navy built a website to base all the updated answers at as we navigate through today and tomorrow.

There are several questions about our way forward. The Navy built a website to answer many of them regarding PCS, CPO selection boards, leave & travel, to how we will operate in today's environment. If you haven't seen it already, please use the link below:

Couple things here Seabees, Force Master Chief of the Seabees, FORCM Terrell, has an official page to deliver highlights and news directly from him that you can follow now. Also, one of the first items down the line is the Seabee Enlisted Career Guide which you can download from the link below:

https://seabeemagazine.navylive.dodlive.mil/files/2020/07/Seabee-Enlisted-Career-Guide-Digital.pdf

Seabees, this guide was created based on your feedback…

Thank You for your input as well as CMDCM Laurie, CMDCM Lopez, CUCM Sherman, MC1 Granger, YN1 Padilla and many others who provided input on multiple occasions along the way. This was truly a Team Effort! What I also like about this guide is the Goal Setting Worksheet, it’s never too early or too late to set goals: Let’s Get After It!

Michael Gerber stated, “The difference between great people and everyone else is that great people create their lives actively, while everyone else is created by their lives, passively waiting to see where life takes them next. The difference between the two is the difference between living fully and just existing.” This enlisted career guide will aid us to live fully and I would like to take this opportunity to briefly discuss the purpose of it, provide thoughts on a successful career and share my expectations to you as a leader.

The purpose of this guide is fairly simple, but powerful. The Seabees prior to you and I, have built a strong foundation as our Force continues to excel and evolve in this ever changing environment. With that being said, this document will continue our “Can-Do” culture and provide you the knowledge and tools needed throughout your career. You are responsible for the management of your career, engaging with your Chain of Command, and Detailers to assist you in achieving your professional and personal milestones; use this roadmap. What does success look like as a leader?

Success is based on sustained superior performance in a variety of positions and geographic locations, continued professional growth and education, and demonstrated leadership in all situations. I challenge you to take advantage of every opportunity, furthering your experience and education as you continue to grow as leaders and to “pay it forward”. You will be faced with adversity along the way; nonetheless, the camaraderie amongst each other reaffirms we are in this together and there is no greater responsibility to serve and defend our family and the Constitution when called upon. We will remain “continuous learners” and below are my expectations for you, as well as myself.

Expectation is defined as, “a belief that someone will or should achieve something.” These expectations are easy to say and understand; nevertheless, may be difficult to achieve on a daily basis. They remind me, and I hope you, to live actively and stay motivated!

• Be humble (confidently): Challenge yourself and peers, stay committed and remember no one is successful by themselves.

• Be honest: At times this can be tough however, we all need feedback in understanding our blind spots. Always be fair and respectful regardless of rank during these discussions.

• Be consistent: It is our diversity that makes us strong and the greatest Navy in the world. Respect one another, stay committed to your core and step-in when someone needs help.

• Leave a legacy: What is your legacy going to be? If you influence one person, what do you want them to say/remember about you and about the Seabees.

• Have fun: This took me awhile to understand during my career… Don’t go crazy, stay focused and reflect on the impact you are making and what/who you represent.

In closing, the success of your peer, fire team, squad, company, command, Seabees, Navy and Nation relies on your ability to accomplish the mission every time and take care of one another. I expect us to make “One Degree of Difference” in everything we do and “Never Lower Our Standards for Anyone.” I look forward to discussing this further with you in person.

Can Do!
