Hello. I am trying to locate anyone that served with my 3rd cousin, CHARLES ERNEST KOBERLEIN. He died in Vietnam from an incident that happened on September 29, 1970 (passed on October 9, 1970). I know he was an equipment operator 3rd class, NMBC-62 NC BDE (not sure what all that means).

Most of my relatives are army, he is one of the only Navy guys and I want to learn more about him. I've been doing extensive family history and just want to make sure I have the correct info for him.

Was he a bee?

I'd love to hear from anyone that may have served with him. He was born in Callicoon, NY.

Thank you for your help and more importantly, for your service!
Billi-Jo Orr

(Norm Hahn received this email from Roman Hnatowski, EAC, USN, Retired, a NMCB 62 Alumni Group Member:)

Shipmates:

It is with a heavy heart and much sadness to inform you of Dennis Fink's passing. Chris wanted everyone to know that one of Dennis' greatest pleasures was talking with, receiving email from and especially getting together with his Brothers and their families.

Tomorrow, the 24th, I'll call Chris and ask her the viewing and burial arrangements. I'm sure we all will keep Dennis and Chris is our hearts and prayers.

Miss you Brother! V/r, Roman

PS - Dennis served as an EA2 on NMCB 62's 2nd & 3rd tours to Red Beach, Danang and Dong Ha, RVN.

I just received this email. Don Hair is not in our database, but the time frame is our 1st Deployment: Dec 66 to Aug 67 to Hue-Phu Bai. If anyone know anything about Don Hair, send me an email at normhahnjr@yahoo.com. It would be nice to get his lighter back to him. Here is the email:

Hi,
I'm a Vietnam vet, Navy Corpsman, 1967. I found a cigarette lighter along a road in Phu Bai around September/October 1967. It has the inscription Don Hair, Seabees, M-C-B-62.

I still have this lighter and would like to find Don Hair to return it to him.

Thanks,
Josh Hoffman
