Naval Reserve Construction Force
"Seabees" are skilled Navy craftsmen who build and defend the
structures the Navy needs around the world. The Seabees are known throughout
the Navy for their "Can Do" spirit. Seabees have served proudly
in almost every world crisis and conflict. Their construction feats are
legendary. Navy Seabees are not only builders, but also fierce fighters.
They can carve a Navy base from the wilderness, then defend it until reinforcements
arrive to occupy it.
Basic eligibility requirements are as follows: Civilians and military
veterans who have worked in equivalent civilian occupations may qualify
to enter the Naval Reserve Construction Force. The initial pay grade depends
on their training and experience. Ages 21-36.
ENLISTMENT OPPORTUNITIES ADVANCED PAY GRADE (APG) PROGRAM
