POW/MIA Table

Hope this finds everyone Happy and Healthy. The enclosed picture was taken at the Armed Forces Retirement Home in Gulfport, Mississippi on April 30, 2017 by Pete Scolaro. The Armed Forces Retirement Home in Gulfport was previously called the Soldiers and Sailors Home and under the auspices of the Navy and Marine Corps. Though the Army and Air Force no longer display the Bible, apparently the Navy and Marine Corps still do. God Bless the men and women of the Navy and Marine Corps and long live their traditions! Please note the Bible. V/r, Roman Hnatowski

NMCB 62 Alumni Member Tom Meyer
Master of Ceremonies at 70th Seabee Anniversary Celebration

There were two proclamations presented at our dedication, one from the Missouri Senate, and one from the Missouri House of Representatives . The copy you have came from the Missouri Senate, from Senator Jason Crowell, in recognition of the 70th. Anniversary of the area SEABEES. Both were read from them, which made it very special. They will hang in the hallway entry at the local American Legion Hall, where we have our Seabee meetings. We had Two Missouri Representatives, one Missouri Senator, one Cape Girardeau County Presiding Commissioner and District 1 County Commissioner on hand, as well as a number of SEABEE Veterans from WWII, Korean, Vietnam, Desert Storm and Iraq. Thank you for allowing us to display our Battalion Flag NMCB-62. Many remarked they wish they had their own Battalion Flag on hand. Again, Thank you, TMMeyer

Above picture is Mike Geno operating dozer, not sure who he ran over.

This one is Chad Turner on right helping to pull shipmate from underneath the dozer's track.
Note: I directed this fake accident - pretty good eh?
I'm not sure who the other guys are in this picture.


I can't believe I walked out on these tubes and took this picture!


I was on this detail to hook up the cement syphoning tubes.


Here's a beautiful sunset photo on Diego at low tide.  Note: I'm not sure who is walking along the beach.

Photos added to the Minutemen Website May 2010

Norman, I have about 175 slides I have scanned into my computer. I will send you a CD copy of them if you would like them on the NMCB 62 website. Most are from the Dong Ha area up to the Rockpile. Some are from DaNang. I can remember where some were taken, and maybe someone else will know where some of the others were taken.

Norm; I'm going to try to send the pictures. I have them split up in four bunches - first bunch from Dong Ha- Rockpile area from the 1969 deployment. I was on the service truck for awhile. At the Rockpile I was on the supply truck. That is the one with the 50 Cal. on top. I had a driver and I would sit in back on the 50 Cal. after we would leave main base, most of the time it was after the security was pulled off of RT LTL9. The pictures of the rock slide are at bridge 912 on way to Rockpile, there is one of Camlo Bridge and one of the Camlo rock crusher, some of air strikes on the Rockpile, and some photos of the big guns at the Rockpile.

The second bunch is from the DaNang area, some from the hill 55 work site, the blown up equipment is from that area. I've put captions on some of the ones I could remember.

The third bunch is some USO shows and I think they are up at Dongha. I'm real not real sure maybe someone else can put a name to some of them.

The forth bunch is all of the previous three combined.

I have made a list by the numbers on the bottom of the pictures. I hope they will come up when you download off of the CD. Photos # 083, 084, 089, 090, and 102 are at bridge 912. Photos # 086, 100, and 155 are home at Rockpile. Photo # 091 is the shop at dongha. Photos # 106 and 118 are the coffer dam outside dongha. Photo # 129 is water crossing at bridge 912. Photos # 126 and 150 are the big guns at Rockpile.

 Photos # 128, 143, 144, 145, 149, 153, and 154 are the Rockpile area. Photo # 217 is the 8in mobile gun: # 228 is Camlo bridge: # 187 is the Camlo rock crusher: # 003 is my 5 ton with 50 cal. on top that I carried supplies to the Rockpile. Photos # 006, 033, 034 and 035 are air strikes on the Rockpile:  # 011 is a 5 ton fuel truck: # 014 is a TS-24 that has a big OOPS! Photos # 108, 120, 122, 123, 142, are DaNang area hill 55: # 257 is Spud Almond and #248 is Larry Farris sitting & George Muskiganis standing. # 269 is my service old gas deuce.

 I hope someone else can tell where some of the other pictures are from; I've got some more pictures I'll send later.

Norman: I put the picture CD in the mail today I hope you'll get them the first of next week. I didn't know you were an old wrench turner, I've worked on everything from the big stuff we had in MCB to big boat to   big trucks. I worked in truck shop for over twenty years,

I left there about three years ago I'm now working for the Maryland State Police as a DOT inspector I know how they work so I know what to   look for and we find a lot of bad things.

  If I can help anyone with there slides let me know, I'm just learning a lot about the computer. the scanner I got dose a good job and it's not hard to use. You'll see that the slides I sent don't look to bad

  for there age, I can do more as soon as I learn more about the photo shop program to take more of the dust and junk out.

  To bad we didn't have any trucks like the one in these four pictures. They are my nephews.

Hi Norm,

I've tried to determine the most effective, efficient, and bullet proof way of getting these photos to you. I've used this method for other purposes and it seems to work well. Just click on the following link and it'll take you to my dropbox. The photos and explanation are all there. This is a safe method and the total size of all files is only about 35 Mb. It should be easy to download. The photos were all taken between April and November 1970.

If you have any trouble with the link, or have any questions, let me know.

Thanks!

Al

Secretary Norm's notes:  A complete, detailed explanation of each photo is contained on pages 108, 109 and 110.

More Secretary Norm's notes:  Our Seabee Brother Al went on to become Roswell Alfred (Al) Harris, PhD, PE.
