    Seabees on Guadalcanal wade through knee high water to reach the mess hall. The Japanese airfield at Guadalcanal was close to completion when the American invasion forces struck. The principal task assigned to the 6th Naval Construction Battalion (NCB) was to construct and keep the field operational during the months of fierce combat. The 6th NCB followed the Marines onto Guadalcanal on September 1, 1942, and became the first Seabees to engage in the combination of building and fighting for which they have become famous. 1942
