Petty Officer 3rd Class Susan Johnston, a Garden City native, is serving with Naval Mobile Construction Battalion 11, a Seabee Battalion specializing in advance base construction, battle damage repair, contingency engineering, humanitarian assistance and disaster recovery support to fleet and unified commanders.

NMCB 11, home-ported in Gulfport, Miss., recently returned from deployment to Rota, Spain.

Earlier this year, Johnston and the rest of the battalion returned from their six-month deployment, where they were in charge of providing engineering support to four combatant command areas of responsibility.

While deployed, Johnston and the other Navy Seabees of NMCB 11 were responsible for executing numerous projects, ranging from security improvements to bases in Africa to the construction of a submarine support facility in Guam.

Johnston graduated from Garden City High School in 2006.
