Seabees from Naval Mobile Construction Battalion Forty load up their equipment for their deployment to Mogadishu, Somalia, December 1992.
The Deployment Completion Report or After Action Report is the primary source of historical information for battalion accomplishments and lessons learned during deployment. It covers all battalion aspects for the deployment including project work, training, safety, administration, supply and logistics, and significant events. For each aspect, the report provides lessons learned, statistical data, and brief narrative discussions of matters that maybe of significance to other NCF units deploying to the deployment site.
The requirement for units to create a Deployment Coimpletion Report did not begin until the early 1960s. As a result, no WWII or Post-WWII units prior to this time are listed. The AARs after 2001 will be added at a later date.
