    "O.K. Construction"

    Well, most Bees are all cross-trained because you are limited usually on the number of a particular trade you might have in your detachment or work party. So CEs (electricians) and UTs (Fitter/HVAC/Plumber) for example would usually cross train so they could help each other out and the same goes for the other specialties. Some times you are helping screed concrete and sometimes you are laying block, not the usual stuff for a UT like I was but when that didn't matter when you're trying to build a runway or camp or filed hospital while under enemy fire. Everyone helped get done what had to be done at the time.
    "When we build let us think we build forever. Let it not be for present delight nor for present use alone. Let it be such work that our descendants will thank us for, and let us think, as we lay stone upon stone, that a time is to come when these stones will be held sacred because our hands have touched them, and that men will say, as they look upon the labor and wrought substance of them, "See! This our fathers did for us."
    John Ruskin (1819 - 1900)
