U.S. Navy Steelworker Constructionman Joseph Synowiec, assigned to Naval Mobile Construction Battalion (NMCB) 4, prepares to weld two pieces of metal together on the roof of a library at the Ban Surasak School project site during Pacific Partnership 2019.

The scope of the project includes construction of a library, which is also designed to function as a shelter in the event of a natural disaster.

Pacific Partnership, now in its 14th iteration, is the largest annual multinational humanitarian assistance and disaster preparedness mission conducted in the Indo-Pacific.

Each year, the mission team works collectively with host and partner nations to enhance regional interoperability and disaster response capabilities, increase stability and security in the region, and foster new and enduring friendships across the Indo-Pacific.
