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.

Comments: How to get on the Gulfport, Mississippi Seabee Reunion email list.
NMCB 62 & Ireland & Scotland Seabees.
Secretary Norm emailed Glen Kellerman, one of the Kingpins of the Gulfport Seabee reunion to ask him if our members could email him directly to get your name put on his Gulfport Seabee reunion email list, meaning that when the reunion information is published you would be directly emailed all of the information rather than having that information come through me.
(Below is my email to him)
Hi Glen, I am expecting a good crowd from NMCB 62 in 2016. If folks would like to have their email address added to your reunion registration form and events email contact list, can I tell them to email you directly?? Let me know. Take care, Norm.
(Below is his reply to me)
Absolutely!! I will add their names to the list. Yes, you may have the individuals contact me directly about having their name added to the list. Just be sure and tell them to mention your name (or NMCB 62) in their email. Glen. His email address is listed above.
Comments: Looking forward to join the reunion in Gulfport in April 2016. I did four tours in Vietnam with MCB-62 from 1966 - 1970. I visited Gulfport in May and found out I had just missed a reunion there.
