NMCB 74 Desert Storm Veterans Reunion

May 1st – 3rd, 2020 Gulf Coast

29th Anniversary of Desert Storm Reunion  May 1st – May 3rd, 2020 

It’s never too early to start planning to attend. Especially those who live locally. We want max participation, so everyone come out and enjoy the camaraderie, some great food, and tell some sea stories with everyone. The dates for the 3rd annual NMCB 74 Desert Storm veterans and friends have been set. The Hollen and Palmer families have graciously welcomed us into their homes for another year of brotherhood and camaraderie. To prevent them from being burdened with the cost and planning for this event we are asking everyone who plans to attend for a 15$ per person per event to cover the cost of food and incidentals.

 The two events we have scheduled are:

Friday, May 1 Meet and greet at Reno Hollen’s house 20192 Hill Top Road, Saucier, Mississippi 39574
Saturday, May 2 The reunion at Rick Palmer’s house 20119 Box Cove, Saucier, Mississippi 39574

 

 

We are also asking everyone to RSVP by April 1, 2020, so we can have accurate numbers for planning purposes. Please send your payments to the PayPal account https://www.paypal.me/nmcb74reunion or you can send check or money order to:

Joshua Turner  387 Concord Road, Pelahatchie, MS 39145    joshua4771@gmail.com

Our Facebook group is called NMCB 74 Desert Storm Veterans which now has almost 300 members.  Make sure to go through your friend’s list and add any NMCB 74 Desert Storm Veterans to the group.  Please continue to use the facebook group for everyday conversations, announcements and sharing personal photos.

Detail sites included ASU, Bahrain; Al Kibrit and Al KhafJi, Saudi Arabia; and Suman Air Base, Bahrain. This Deployment Completion Report reflects the actions of NMCB 74 in Operations Desert Shield/Storm from 04 December 1990 to 08 May 1991.
