This is the second posting to the SeaBee3 website. PLEASE TAKE NOTICE.

MCB-3 Veterans Reunion Assoc. will hold its 18th Annual Reunion from October 19th to the 21st in Gulfport, MS. We are open to all eras in this 75th Seabee anniversary year. Contact: Harold ‘Doc’ Schrage, Pres., at mcb3doc@gmail.com or (818) 681-7852 for details and registration packets.


Ladies and Gentlemen,

I now have the hotel information for you so you can book your rooms at the Courtyard Gulfport Beachfront Hotel by Marriott. The reunion dates are October 19 – 22, 2017 and the easiest way to book is to follow this link Book your group rate for MCB-3 Reunion 75th Anniversary . You may need to cut and paste it. The $109 plus tax rate will be guaranteed until 9/27/17 but don’t wait for that date as I hope we will fill it up earlier than that. Check your Marriott rewards and other programs to take advantage of points you have collected. We are listed as the MCB-3 Reunion 75th Anniversary when you book by phone at 228.864.4310.

With the help of Victor Horvath I am compiling the information on the other details like the cost for the banquet and the sights for us to visit as individuals or as a group. I need to contact the Seabee Base and CEC/Seabee Museum to arrange for our access to the facility. I plan on sending you the complete packet as soon as I complete it, hopefully by the end of the month.

MCB-3 Reunion 75th Anniversary

We will be sending out registration packete in the summer. Please contact me, Harold Schrage, the current president at mcb3doc@gmail.com for additional information.




At 1729 hours, September 22, 2017, muster was held by the 4th Squad, 2nd Platoon Charlie Company MCB3. The names were called loud and clear - until coming to SHOTWELL, LEE - which was followed by silence. The name was called the second time, again followed by silence. When called the third time, I believe I heard a voice from above which said ´His watch is over, Lee is now present and accounted for.´


Lee Shotwell's Memorial Service will be held at 11:00, Saturday September 30th, at the Wesleyan Church, Muskegon, MI. Luncheon to follow. Lee told Angie "Black is for sadness  ......... Red, White, Blue and Camouflage are colors for celebration and pride." Please feel free to wear these colors that meant so much to him.

From Steven Paul Green, MCB3
