CommentsDid anyone on here ever serve with my uncle from 73-74 in Vietnam? Robert Martin Demirjian from Rhode Island? My dad said his brother never came back from Vietnam the same and its hard for him to talk about it. I'm trying to understand what happened to my uncle. If anyone served with him, please contact me. I'm his niece. Thank you!

CommentsMy Grandmother and I were reading the 1976-77 "war stories" from Diego Garcia. My dad was there those years does anyone remember Ken Mioduski? My grandma said that they called him Ski. If you knew him or have any photos of him during that time please share. Also, if you or anyone you know have any stories involving him we would love to hear, Thank you!

CommentsI received this information on 13 Sep 2016 from "The Seabee News" the official publication of the Vietnam Era Seabees. The Vietnam Era Seabees sponsored the East Coast All Seabee Reunion for many years. Below is the actual newsletter column written by their president.
It is with much sadness that I'm writing you, our members, to inform you that our organization, The Vietnam Era Seabees, is no longer going to be able to exist. We've tried more than once to invite members to join in running the organization but never did receive enough offerings to continue.
Unfortunately we've run our course and all good things must come to an end.
We want to thank all those who've been with us and all those who've been involved in running the VNES. We also thank all those who've attended our reunions. It was enjoyable to both hold the events and to attend them.
The Executive Board will be divvying up whatever there is left in the Grab Bag. Most will be donated to the Port Hueneme, CA and Davisville, RI Museums. Any liquid assets will be donated to Seabee related organizations such as the Seabee Memorial Scholarship Association and the Wounded Seabee Fund.
As stated above, it's something that we never wanted to see happen but we probably knew it was inevitable? We thank all those for the years of membership, involvement and contributions. We wish all the best of luck and we still hope to be able to cross paths with all in the future. Until we meet again ...
