Hi Norm: I enlisted in the Navy in 1969 and Chief Gipson (George M. Jr.) was my Company Commander in boot camp. His hard as nails and tough persona contributed greatly to my success in the Navy. I served 21 years and retired as a Senior Chief Hospital Corpsman in 1991. I have thought about Chief Gipson over the years and wandering if he was still alive. Based on your records, he is deceased. That said, I would like any information you can find on him. If his grave can be located, I would like to go and pay my respects before I too pass on. Also, if you have any information on family members, it would be greatly appreciated.

Respectfully,

This is the second clarification email from Bob Smith:

Hello Seabees,

Let me clarify: everyone got a refund by check unless you told us to keep it. You didn't have to request a refund. We mailed out refund checks today (21 April) to everyone. There were a few people that got an online credit card refund too.

If you have any questions let me know. Email Me.

Bob Smith

(this is Secretary Norm - Give them till the beginning of May before you email Bob. They are doing a heck-of-job with only a few people.)

Bob Smith sent me an email about individual refunds for the $$$$ we all paid for the 2020 Gulfport All Seabee Reunion which was cancelled because of COVID-19.

Hello Norm,
We will be mailing out refund checks. We have to wait for our treasurer to come out of quarantine.
A handful of people will get an online refund and a few will have their checks that we havent deposited returned to them too. Bob (Sent from my iPhone)

How do YOU want your name to look on our (this) website?

It's your name, and I'll put it any way you want, except rude or cursing.

Example: Hahn Jr., Norman E. or: Hahn, Norman Edward, or Hahn, Norm, or Hahn, Stormin Norman.

Let me know, it's your choice. My email address is listed above.

just reading some post on this page, I was sent to camp lejune in either 69 or 70, for about a week. I don't remember the year, only 20 to 30 men. I remember one of there drills was to last all morning and it took us 30 minutes. also, some of the completion reports are wrong it states that a dozer hit a landmine on 7-11-70 on ltl 1, it was on ltl 4, I know this because I was the operator, much later (years) I was awarded a purple heart.

Here is a note from Jon Scott, the head of the April 2020 Gulfport All Seabee Reunion (which NMCB 62 attends). Received Thu, Mar 12 at 10:08 PM.

"We will not make a decision until our island meeting next Thursday, 19 March. Until then the planning and preparations continue.

Jon" (sent from my iPhone)

Sec Norm says: so we must all wait and see. In these uncertain times, COVID-19, with things changing so rapidly we must error on the side of caution and safety. As soon as they decide and inform me, I'll inform you.
