According to a recent Navy news release, steelworkers assigned to Naval Mobile Construction Battalion 5 (NMCB-5) have built decoy Humvees with just plywood to support Combat Logistics Regiment for Exercise Neptune’s Forager.

U.S. Navy Seabees with NMCB-5 are deployed supporting a free and open Indo-Pacific by strengthening the network of allies and partners and providing general engineering and civil support to US.S joint operational forces. Homeported out of Port Hueneme, California, NMCB-5 has 10 detail sites deployed throughout the U.S. and Indo-Pacific area of operations.

Naval Construction Battalion 5 was commissioned on May 25, 1942 at Camp Allen Va. The battalion went to Port Hueneme and shipped out for the first of two deployments in the Pacific. When the war ended, CB 5 was decommissioned in the Philippines. On July 10, 1951 the Battalion was re-commissioned as an MCB and remains an active unit today.
