Time for Moving On
I have been maintaining a MCB 4 Rooster, writing the Newsletter, and acting as Reunion Coordinator and Treasure since 2007. This will be the last Reunion I will organize and host. It is time to pass the torch to someone younger who can keep this loosely organized group functioning. If no one is interested in hosting Reunions or maintaining the Group are we to the point of disbanding and attending Reunions organized by others. Since I do not know the future of the Group I have not sent out Membership renewal notices or Membership Applications this year. I would like input from members
I would like input from members. My contact information is:
2315 N. 76th Street

Since the last Newsletter we have been notified of the passing of the following veterans of MCB 4. We appreciate their service to Seabees and extend condolences to family and friends.
