THE NMCB 62 "MINUTEMEN" WEBSITE
This website first went online in October 2008. The idea to create our own website originated from discussions within a small group of NMCB 62 Minutemen who meet at the East Coast Seabee Reunion in Hampton, Virginia and the All Seabee Reunion in Gulfport, Mississippi. From these discussions two Minuteman, Billy Millican 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 is also the secretary/treasurer. Price Richardson from Virginia is the President. The Alumni Group holds its annual business meeting Saturday afternoon at the East Coast All Seabee Reunion in Hampton, Virginia. Any NMCB 62 vet can attend the reunion and meeting.
The NMCB 62 Alumni Group has a two-fold mission. First, to make contact with all the Minuteman veterans, let them know about the Alumni Group Membership and this website and to invite them to attend our reunions. Second, we keep a list of the names of NMCB 62 veterans (now 2236+ and growing) in a secure database and give them an opportunity to provide their biographies for future generations. For an example of a outstanding biography, click on Link #6, the "Minutemen History" tab and scroll down to SW3 Glenn "Willie" Williams reflections and click on it.
Anyone who was in NMCB 62 can be Alumni Group Member. Relatives of deceased members can also become members. The alumni dues are a very reasonable ten dollars for twelve months and are used to pay for this website. Donations are also gratefully accepted. To become an Alumni Member, click on Link #7, the "Bio & Membership App" fill in the information requested and submit it online to Secretary Norm Hahn. Then make out a check and send it to Norm at the address on the application.
Please don't forget to sign our guestbook and leave a message for your Minuteman shipmates.
This website will always be under construction because we are constantly adding reunion and personal photos and items we think others want to see.
