GULFPORT, MS (WLOX) -

More than 300 Seabees of Naval Mobile Construction Battalion 133 returned to Gulfport Sunday following a six month deployment overseas.

The Seabees were greeted by family members and friends following their arrival on two separate flights.

While deployed, NMCB 133 conducted assessments and constructed storage facilities and vertical takeoff and landing pads, and constructed semi-permanent facilities and camp infrastructures.

The battalion also supported operations in U.S. Central Command and the Horn of Africa.

Patrice Clark was on hand for the reunions when the Seabees arrived today. Look for the full story tonight on WLOX News and WLOX.com.
