Seabees at Work

Artist Robert Charles Haun devoted a large percentage of his sketches to the efforts of the Mobile Construction Battalion (Special), or the Seabees. They were the men that interested him most.

Before Operation Deep Freeze, he had painted murals for the Naval Air Station at Quonset Point, Rhode Island. Haun was given the honor of designing the MCB (Special) Emblem for Operation Deep Freeze I.
