Comments: Finally reacting to an impulse to reach out to anyone who remembers me from my days in the battalion. I served in the late '60's; retired from active duty in May 1987; have been residing here in Sanford, FL since that time. I arrived in 62 as an E-6 and left as an E-7; soon after made E-8 as an Engineering Aide. The battalion experience is one of my favorite postings in my nearly 28 career. Coming out of the fleet, thru nearly 3 yrs of active reserves and then reentering active service to crossrate to EA was one of the best decisions I ever made. I wished that I could have made the latest reunion effort in Gulfport just weeks ago. All the best to you who served NMCB-62 with honor!
Comments: Was in '62 from '77 - '78 when I got out. Was a heavy equipment operator and worked out of the dispatch shack until I was hijacked into Jim Sharpe's "SLJ crew" (that's was Sr. Chief Best called us). Good times, good friends, I miss it!
Comments: Looking for Kenneth J. Moneagle, EO2, NMCB 62 Letter sent to him at Sorrels Dr., Jacksonville, AR has been returned by post office as moved, left no forwarding address. Can anyone tell me his email address?
Comments: Was in NMCB62 1979 - 1981, This was a great time in my career. Sure do miss all the Seabees, I will never forget Seabee Team 6211, never served with a better group of men. Take care all Seabees.
Comments: Joined 62 in December of '66 & sent to Phu Bai. Spent 1st tour on 81mm mortars & security. 2nd tour I was a mechanic on the field lube crew. Only guys from 62 I have run into were Popovich from Ohio, & CM Berle Schwed from New Jersey. I'm still working as a mechanic. Slurpee mechanic!
