3rd CEB hosts deactivation ceremony

8 Aug 2014 |

Center patrons stood silent and still as they paid witness to the closing of an historic era. Crimson and gold colors gently ruffled in the mild morning air, waving for the last time before being retired and cased. This marked the official deactivation of 3rd Combat Engineer Battalion, a unit that’s participation in foreign wars since World War II has been integral to the Marine Corps’ mission.
