Construction Electrician 1st Class Daniel Lehne, a Seabee assigned to Underwater Construction Team 2’s Construction Diving Detachment Alfa (CDDA), severs a mooring chain with an underwater exothermic cutting rod. CDDA is removing the old mooring chains that previously held the 12,000 feet Big Blue dry dock at Naval Base Guam. CDDA is on the second stop of their six-month deployment, where they are conducting inspection, maintenance, and repair of various underwater and waterfront facilities in support of the Pacific Fleet.
