LITTLE CREEK, Virginia —
In a humanitarian aid mission to the island nation of the Democratic Republic of Timor-Leste in maritime Southeast Asia, Seabees from Naval Mobile Construction Battalion 5's Construction Civic Action Detail built two bridges to enable safe river crossings that isolate villages in Leimea. Defense Logistics Agency Distribution Norfolk, Va., and its Little Creek, Va., detachment assisted the Seabees in the short-notice and cost-effective transportation of wire rope cable to the location.
