A Seabee from Naval Mobile Construction Battalion 133 (NMCB-133) uses a front loader to pile earth around a drainage pond as his unit repairs a stretch of runway at an Iraqi airfield. The airfield, which had been under construction prior to the start of the Persian Gulf war, is being repaired by coalition engineer units so relief supplies can be flown in for nearby Kurdish refugees as part of Operation Provide Comfort
