Comments: I made one deployment with NMCB 62 to Guam in 1978. Worked on rehab of Alarm Control Center project at Naval Magazine. BU's Cronk, Meredith, Byrom, Snodgrass, and myself. Half way thru deployment went on det. to Atsugi Japan for a barracks rehab. project. How sweet it was to get away from the main body ! That deployment had Charlie & Delta Co's combined to form Echo Co.
Comments: EA2 - Joined NMCB 62 in 1972, deployed to Diego Garcia on the advance party and organized test lab. Originally enlisted in 1969 and first duty station was in Bainbridge Md working in Public Works. In 1971 I was "volunteered" for Naval In Shore Operations Training Center, Mare Island - including SERE training, weapons, special warfare tactics and 10 impossible weeks of Vietnamese lanquage. War came to a halt and that's when I joined 62. Got to see Bob Hope's 1972 Christmas show on DG. Wishing everyone well!
