I just wanted to pass along the sad news that my Uncle Steve "MAC" MacCaffrie (MCB-133 Camp Falkner Vietnam) passed away this past weekend. I thought his friends in the Seabee community would like to know.
Funeral plans are pending and will likely be in the news papers in Mansfield, Mass where he resided.
Regards, Roger Bombardier Jr. (Nephew) OIF Veteran Former Sergeant United States Army
Comments: Joined MCB-62 on Diego Garcia in summer 72 as a CMC. Ran the Light Shop that deployment. Made the Guam deployment in 73-74 and ran the 5000 Shops. Transferred to CBC Gulfport when we returned from Guam and ran the Auto Hobby Shop until I retired in March of 75. I am a regular at the All Seabee Reunions in Hampton, and hope to see many of you there in February 2010.
Comments: Diego 72-3, short time in Guam 73, returned in 77 just in time for another Diego, onto Guam, then Sigonella.I finally gave it up in 1993 after a CBMU 302 in PI and CBU 409 in Long Beach and NMCB 133 twice. I did a strech with NMCB 5 during the late 50's Damned if I don't feel a little old.
