Seabees Hive - Dutch Harbor - Alaska
Encampment of the Construction Battalion. Like a suburb to Dutch Harbor, the Seabees encampment is a small settlement apart where the highly respected Construction Battalion is quartered. These men have left lucrative civilian jobs to volunteer their special skills to the Navy. The Aleutian winter is one of constant freezing and thawing which at times turns the roadways into quagmires of almost impassable mud.
