44th Engineer Group Locator "Duty Roster"
Beyond the historic value, though, is a strong desire to reunite with
my fellow company members in reunions held annually or as often as possible
both in the United States and in our "second home," or "home - away from home"
Publishing a Locator Directory or
Roster of member names,
and with their individual permission as much as so desired, eg, email address,
home address and a phone no. to just be able to "reach out" and talk to another
friend, another veteran of S.E.A. !
Like in any major under-taking, there are many team members and I have
solicited as many people as I possibly could beginning with the following
Mike Ellis, Command PFC, 697th, 561st, 809th & MPs -
Roy Ney, Super Surveyor, 697th & 538th -
Frank "mahknut" Picchione, Company Clerk/44th HHC & 697th -
