United States Navy Seabees, Camp Parks, Dublin CA
Camp Parrington is home to Detachment 1018 NMCB 18. The camp, consisting of a small building at the northwest corner of 5th Street and Fernandez Avenue, became home to the Bay Area Seabees after Naval Station Treasure Island closed. Although it may not be the newest unit to train at Camp Parks, Detachment 1018 NMCB 18 is certainly the most "historic." Camp Parrington, named after retired EOC Russ Parrington, is home to 94 Seabees Reservists.
