The NMCB 62 "Minuteman" Website
The idea to create our own website originated from discussions within a group of NMCB 62 Minutemen who met at the East Coast Seabee Reunion in Hampton, Virginia and the All Seabee Reunion in Gulfport, Mississippi. From these discussions two Minuteman, the late Billy Millican, then from North Carolina and Norm Hahn from Wisconsin got together and made it happen. Billy did the original design and layout of the website and was the first Webmaster. During that time he was also passing on his website expertise to Norm so that he could assume the website responsibilities after his apprenticeship. In October 2010 Norm assumed the duties of Webmaster and embarked on a new website design, new visual appearance and better ease of navigation. He's also the secretary/treasurer.
The NMCB 62 Alumni Group has a two-part mission. First, to contact all Minutemen, and let them know about our Alumni Group and give them the opportunity to add their personal biographies to our database. Second to join us and attend our reunions and reconnect with their buddies. This database will eventually be preserved by the Seabee Historical Foundation for future generations.
Alumni Group Members are anyone who was ever in NMCB 62, and also those Seabees stationed in Scotland, Ireland or England. Family members of living Alumni and surviving family members of deceased alumni members can become Auxiliary Alumni Members. Invited individuals can also become Alumni Group Member. We keep our biographies and personal recollections of NMCB 62 Minutemen, now 2556 and growing, in a secure database accessable 24/7 to paid alumni group members.
We hold our annual meeting at the Gulfport, Mississippi annual All Seabee Reunion. Any Minuteman, family member or interested Seabee can attend the reunion and meeting. We always take lots of pictures at the reunion and put them on our Photos Page.
Annual Membership dues are a very reasonable $20 dollars for twenty-four months up to $200 for a Life Membership. Auxiliary Membership is $20 dollars for twenty-four months up to $100 for a Auxiliary Life Membership. That's less than three cents a day! To become an Alumni Member, go to the Bio and Membership App page, link #7, fill in the blanks then click "submit".
This website will always be under construction because we are constantly adding reunion and personal photos and items we know you want to see.
