Comments: Hi to NMCB 62 alumni, I have the unpleasent task of informing all of you that UT1 Paul Farrell passed away at the Bulixi Hospital late in the afternoon of October 4, 2012. I had the pleasure of serving with Paul when he was attached to NMCB 58. I saw action in Viet Nam with paul in 1969 when we were members of a land mine sweep team along the Cam Lo river. I am very proud to call Paul one of my few friends, I will miss him.

During homeport in Gulfport assigned to the Galley and then deployed to Camp Covington on Guam.
