Hi All
This past weekend (hard copies went out Friday -215)I sent out the logbook to all those for whom I have email addresses (124). I sent each one individually so I could find out which addresses were incorrect. Last time I sent out several bulks and computer told me that a certain number were not delivered - but not whose! I originally had 49 returned due to invalid addresses but have narrowed that down to 39 after searching many pages on the USS BG website for email addresses. If you could assist me on any of the names below that did not receive an email due to rejected email address, I would greatly appreciate it. Please send to me at mkesslar@att.net

Hi Marlene
I sent via email your copy of the Jan 2017 log book this past weekend (I believe Saturday) so you should have it. Please let me know if you did not receive as you said that you could not find any information on the upcoming reunion on the website as of Monday. My computer said it sent with no rejection.
thank you
Marilynn

We both think it would be better if the log would go back to the old way..Some people do not have a chance to see it via the internet,and we are having trouble,can get on the BG site but can not get the info about this years ship reunion.Welcome to the Uss Belle Grove wont come up.Its frustrating.So we would be in favor of it going back.If its not broke then dont fix it. Lowell& Marlene ;)

Hello Friends,
Just received phone call from Frank Trautman, and he had a message on his phone from Peggy Dikommy, her husband Hans passed away. He has tried calling back but unable to get a hold of her. They lived in Springvill, FL. Hans served aboard the BG from 4/53 to 03/55. They had attended several reunions.
