Bjork email: stuart.bjork at location: Janesville Wi. After boot camp I went to class A school at Port Hueneme Ca. Was hoping to find jerry Mann who we were station with and my wife and I live with until our home was ready for us.
My cousin was in the Seabees and I recall seeing him at Little Creek, VA, at the Amphibious Warfare Training Facility in approximately 1963 or 1964, during the summer, probably June or July. I promised my grandmother that before she died I would get him a shadowbox made and pass it on, I failed to do so, but I am still going to finish what I promised her.
I was one of the last to leave for RVN and was at Gia Le from September to October before going to Quang Tri. He was also detached to the Marines which involved securing the island, somewhat similiar to the Navy Seals today. I am looking for information about our tour in '69. I'm trying to find personnel who knew him and could tell me more about his military career, especially in Vietnam... He never spoke of it, and neither do I, but I'm very interesed in his time spent there. My dad is still alive but getting older by the day (80).
You were shown as being in Detail Foxtrot as RD Coop. Dad was in Cuba, Okinawa, and he was in the advance party to Adak, Alaska, on or about 1959. My father, now deceased, EGIL EUGENE TWEDT was a member of the Seabees in late 1940's-early 1950's. This is as much as I know regarding my father's Naval history. name: Stacy Walters Brown email: slbrown at gmail.comlocation: Murchison, TX Date: April 18, 2011comment: Hello, really enjoyed the website. I went from the fleet to MCB128 and went to Quangtri in 1969, Jan. I would like to hear from any of his old buddies that might have known him especially during his Vietnam years.
I was in the Marine Corps, which was my reason for being at that location. Is there anyway that I can find out if that unit was there at that time? He passed away in the late '60's when I was 6 yrs old. Frog, Tood, Shepard were some of those in my company. He was a Seabee stationed in Newfoundland, Moroco, Korea, Spain, and of course Vietnam 66-69(2 tours).
the following info: i showed our arrival to Okinawa as August '67. Unfortunately I have very little information since all the relatives that were connected to him have passed on. Sincerely, Liz Lockie (Wylie)chachachik1 at 28te Naval Mobile Construction Batallion Company Bravo. I am retired Army, (1SG) and I am looking for information about my father, Carrol Eugene Simmons, EQCM (Ret). I know he was in NCMB 5 in Stationed at Port Hueneme CA. and was also stationed in Rhode Island, Jacksonville FL.,and Millington TN.where he eventually retired.
