Builder First Class Petty Officer Bo Watkins was asked last week to speak at his son's school for their annual Veterans Day assembly. "As a Veteran I was and always will be a Seabee," said Watkins. But he's also a husband and a father who sacrificed a whole lot to keep us all safe.

From war time operations to peace time operations, and construction projects in between, the Seabees are a mobile construction unit that can be anywhere in the world in 48 hours operating, building, and fighting for what they build.

And while the Seabees are off in far away lands operating, building and fighting, they're also missing precious time with family. While Bo was stationed on one side of the Pacific Ocean, on the other side, while playing on the beach, his sons were calling his name, thousands of miles away. Hoping that daddy was safe and that he would one day return home.

And that's the biggest takeaway from Bo's assembly last week. "Always Remember! All gave some, but some gave all. When you go home tonight think of how some kids are not lucky enough to have their family with them while parents are off serving our country."

In order to honor Bo's sacrifice we created a special-edition Seabees belt. Thank you Bo and thank you to all who have served.
