Good News: The Gulfport, MS All Seabee Reunion WILL be held from Thursday night, 28 April through the going-away picnic Sunday afternoon, 1 May 2016. NMCB 62 will hold our reunion with them as we have done for many years. We (NMCB 62) will hold our annual meeting late morning (probably starting around 11am or noon) on SUNDAY, 1 May 2016. We invite any Seabee stationed in Ireland, Scotland or England to join our meeting. The final big picnic at the Ramada hotel will follow our meeting. After the picnic we will meet in the inner area by the pool for more good cheer, more true Minuteman stories and more photos. Bring your lawn chair for this. Plan on departing the reunion Monday morning, 2 May, 2016. The Ramada is only two stories high and fills up quick. You can make your reservations right now by phone. See our website Link 1 for more information and their phone number.
