SIHANOUKVILLE, Cambodia - Commander, Amphibious Force Seventh Fleet, kicked off a dedication ceremony Oct. 26th for a new building constructed by Naval Mobile Construction Battalion Eleven (NMCB 11) at Hun Sen High School as part of Cooperation Afloat Readiness and Training (CARAT) Cambodia 2010.
Rear Adm. Richard Landolt, commander, Amphibious Force Seventh Fleet, said there is no greater investment a country can make than in education.
"Investments in education are investments in our futures. I am proud to have our Navy and our 'Seabees' investing in improving this school's facilities,"
said Landolt, who also took part in a community service project at Goducate Children's Home by teaching local children a cheer from his alma matter.
CARAT Cambodia is the last CARAT exercise of 2010, and includes a series of underway events, maritime security operations, community service projects
and engineering and medical civic action projects. The U.S. 7th Fleet band will also perform at several events throughout the six-day exercise.
Cambodia became the seventh Southeast Asian country to join CARAT, and the first new country to join the exercise series since it started in 1994.
Other participants include Brunei, Bangladesh, Malaysia, Singapore, Thailand and the Philippines. Indonesia participates in the series, though calls the
exercise "Naval Engagement Activity."
