That is the Navy Seabee Veterans of America Auxiliary. Throughout the years of its existence. The Navy SVAA has supported the work of the Navy SVA, and has worked hand in hand with the members in supporting the many functions of the Navy SVA. One of the many ways helping, is the "Seabee Memorial Scholarship Association"[SMSA] and the "CEC/Seabee Historical Foundation", along with other charitable causes.
