Comments: Hello. My great-uncle was part of the Seabees during WWII. His name was Joseph Macaluso. I believe he was part of one of the battalions that built the airports on Tinian, but I don't know for sure. I would appreciate if anyone that may have served with him please let me know any information you may have about him. Thank you in advance and thank you for serving our country.

Comments: I was married to Walter Drenkhahn in 1994 in Gulfport Miss. He was in NMCB 1. When we got married he was a CE3... I am looking for anyone that my know us- ME. I did hang out with some people from NMBC 133 AND 1. I partied and drank alot at the stingers bar on base. Hell I was only 18 years old and had been married for only 2month, before Walter went to Spain. We live in the apt by passroad gate.
Comments: I'm sorry, but I cannot support the enthusiasm of Welcome Home Vietnam Veterans Day. I just think this has occurred too late to have any real meaning to me. While we didn't serve for any "thank yous", we were treated, for the most part just the opposite of those words. Even our memorial, dedicated to those that died in Vietnam was, for the most part, erected by those that served or those that had relatives that served. We even held our own parade in D.C. honoring ourselves , and I remember the "silent majority" remaining silent and allowing 55,000+ lives to be lost for what amounts to nothing. Certainly I salute my fellow soldiers, sailors, airmen and marines for their service, but I think, having served four tours of duty in Vietnam, this day fails to have very much meaning for me personally .
