Comments: The 2017 April Gulfport All Seabee Reunion official reunion information has been confirmed. This is an idea of what will happen, based on past reunions: The reunion kick-off cocktail hour starts late afternoon Thursday 27 April 2017 at the Ramada hotel. The guided tours start from the hotel Friday and Saturday during the day. Island X-1, our hosts, will have a luau Friday night and the banquet on Saturday night, both at the hotel. The banquet and other events are NOT formal dress. Our NMCB 62 Minuteman Alumni WILL hold a short Battalion meeting at 11 am, SUNDAY, 30 April 2017 morning in the Mississippi Room (right across from the registration room). At our Sunday meeting Secretary Norm will give a VERY short financial and membership report. Then each member will have the chance to stand up, introduce themself and their spouse and say a few words about their time in NMCB 62 and the Seabees. You do NOT have to be a current alumni group member to attend this meeting. However, you will be ineligible to win any of our door prizes. We will also take individual, couples and group photos. After our meeting we all go to the picnic and have another wonderful meal and refreshments. At the 2016 Sunday picnic there were almost as many folks as attended the Saturday night banquet. Very cool! The food is outstanding. After the picnic is over, we have been gathering around the pool- inner courtyard area for more great conversation and group photos. Bring a lawn chair. A great time! Make plans to depart Gulfport on Monday, 1 May 2017. Note: Island X-1 Gulfport will email reunion schedules and registration flyers to those who have attended prior reunions and have provided their name and email address to Glen Kellerman. SO, if this is your first reunion and you need a email copy of the reunion schedule and the registrations form, email Glen Kellerman with your first and last name together with your email address. Note: Glen won't send you the schedule without you providing your first and last names because his list is based on names, not email addresses. Glen's email address is in Link 1 of this website. I can't publish it here. Note: the Ramada hotel is only two stories high and fills up quickly. If you have mobility issues, stay on the 1st floor. There are no elevators. Tell them you are with the Seabee Reunion.
Comments: My name is Wendy and I'm searching for my husbands biological father. It's a part of his life that's always been missing and needs filled. My husband Joshua is a wonderful father and provider. Joshua's mothers name is Paula and she dated a gentleman named Don Cornett that was in the Navy Batallion..Seabees #62 1975-1977 stationed in Gulfport Mississippi . His hometown was Independence Mississippi. Don Cornett did get to meet Joshua when he was little then Joshua was moved by family. Joshua would just like to meet him. If you have any information please call Joshua at 903-799-9655. We have grandkids now and know how important family is. Thank you!
