Logo and Motto
After the detachment realignments in fiscal year 2014, the old logo and map depicting the NMCB-14 area of operations was obsolete, since we now extend to North Carolina (DET 2014 -in Charlotte) and Virginia (DET 2914 in Virginia Beach). We also have cross assigned in members at 78 other NOSC locations, extending from Maine to California.
The battalion leadership reviewed the existing logo and moto, considering several design concepts. The new logo reflects the global nature of the battalion yet retains key images from our long history.
Specific design items are:
The Compass Rose = Our Worldwide Capability as well as our Members across the entire US
Guadalcanal 1942 and Iraq 2004 = our two most significant combat actions.
The Seabee and a BEEP emblem = two iconic Seabee emblems.
"Semper Fortis" = Always Strong, this Latin phrase is a favorite of SECNAV and one which certainly applies to NMCB 14!
Red, White and Blue Color Scheme = the colors of our great Nation!
We hope all current NMCB-14 Seabees and Veterans share our excitement in being part of the next phase of NMCB-14 history.
