Most likely, it will be an introduction to naval construction, electricity, surveying, and maybe some demo demonstrations. Although expect some focus on survival, leadership, small arms, and elementary combat techniques as well, as most like to incorporate that for you guys.

Not sure how the PT will be, but go expecting to do some just in case.

Remember to keep your mouth shut, and ears open and you'll have a grand time and learn a lot while doing it.

Yes they're Navy Engineers - Construction Battalions (CB) .. although, I believe the nick "Seabee" actually came from their mascott (a bee).

Next time, say "thank you for the information" and move out. You may want to start practising keeping your mouth shut and ears open now.
