In June 1942, the U.S. Navy established an advance base depot in Gulfport because of its uncrowded deepwater port, rail access, open land, and a lukewarm climate that allowed training and open port facilities year-round. The base ended up being the southern home for the Seabees and was perfect for shipping building materiel and guys to the Caribbean or the Pacific by means of the Panama Canal. Given that the base resumed in March 1966, Seabees have deployed from Gulfport to serve throughout major disputes as well as in peacetime. Seabees from Gulfport played an integral part in Operation Desert Shield/Desert Storm and more recently deployed to Afghanistan and Iraq to assist in local building efforts to reconstruct both countries. Seabees assist thousands each year in worldwide humanitarian jobs while still calling Gulfport home.
