CommentsI operated the MARS station on Guam from 1973-74, as an ET-1. Black-Shoe Navy to be sure, but treasure my time with USNMCB-62. Retired in 1989.

Comments(Robert Ament emails Norm Hahn, 5 Jan 2019: I am planning to go to the (2019 April) Gulfport reunion. I don't know how to post that, can you post it? Norm says "yes".)
I want to inform everyone that made the initial cruise to Vietnam. We spent 8 weeks in Camp Lejeune. This qualifies us for "service related" status in the water contamination "presumptive diseases"
Aplastic anemia and other myelodysplastic syndromes
The proof is in our cruise books. Cruise book 1 page 14 and cruise book 2 page 15 talks about the four weeks we spent in Camp Lejeune prior to each deployment. You must file with the VA.
(If anyone has questions, Bob's email address is in the header above.)
Thanks Bob for this very important information.

CommentsThe 2019 Gulfport All Seabee Reunion, which includes NMCB 62, forms have been emailed to all on their list.
If you did not get these forms and would like to come to the reunion email me and I'll email them to you.
The guest speaker at the Saturday night banquet and at our Minuteman Sunday morning annual meeting will be none other than our own Captain Chuck Fegley, the XO and CO of the Minutemen.

CommentsI've lost track of two of our NMCB 62 alumni members and the thirds cruise book and promotion papers were found in a garbage dump.
CULLUM, Joseph Ernest, Island S-4, Orlando, FL. UT1, retired.
TRAMMELL, Lonnie David, Not in NSVA. ET1, retired. Last known city address is Tecumseh, OK.
NICHOLSON, James Leonard, Not in NSVA. CE3, He was on our 1970 deployment to Danang. Probably not a lifer. Whereabouts unknown. His cruisebook and promotion papers were found in a garbage dump by NSVA member Peter Dowd, who contacted me.
If anyone has info that they are alive, please give me their contact info. If they have passed away, any info you have will be helpful. Thanks, Norm.

CommentsI emailed Jon Scott, the April 2019 Gulfport reunion chairman about the tours / events at the next Gulfport 2019 All Seabee reunion. "Hi Jon, Do you have an idea of the events / tours for the April 2019 reunion??
Of particular interest is a base tour on Friday with a stop at the Seabee Museum & gift shop and then lunch at the mess hall. Many of the guys have asked me about that especially because the museum and gift shop aren't open Sat or Sun.
Anything on the Sat. tours you can give me a rough idea?? Sun at the VA retirement home??
When will the "official" reunion notices be emailed? Thanks, Norm."
Here is his response: "Norm, Our official mail out will take place this Friday (Nov 16th). The following week, I will send out some electronic versions to the Can Do, and Historical Foundation, etc. On Dec 14 the Reunion Manager webpage will be open for people to purchase tickets.
To be fair to other groups and individuals, I can't tell you exactly what we are doing. But, I will say some of your assumptions are correct. We hope everyone will be excited with our attempt to grow this reunion. Regards, Jon."
So, if you are not on their reunion email list I would suggest you do so ASAP.
