I've just visitied the Gulfport, MS base about a week ago and boy has it changed. I met one of my fellow shipmates in the Twin Cities, MN, back in the early 80's.I was able to visit it recently and see the welcome home signs for the Seabees! Can anyone tell me more about his duties, where stationed, rank, etc. I was an EO with MCB 74 stationed in Gulfport, I was in Diego Garcia in 1973 when it was just us the environment. Early in the deployment I broke the rule of "never volunteer" and found out what airlift missions were! We deployed to Camp Barnes Dong Ha in Quang Tri provence; in June 1968.
