USS MULLINNIX DD-944



2003 Reunion Display


2003 Reunion Display: Brasso, Mullinnix Ship's Bell, Mullinnix Plaque, Mullinnix Bell Clapper, Mullinnix Generator Wheel - Pigeon Forge, TN, May 1-4.




A big thanks to MM3 Dale Schultz and MM2 Bob Houghton for helping with the big surprise of getting the Mullinix bell from a dark dusty warehouse near Williamsburg, VA to the 2003 Mullinnix Reunion in Pigeon Forge, TN.
I couldn't have done it without them.

The entire Mullinnix Association would like to extend its appreciation to Frank Thompson of the Navy's Curator Branch and his staff for allowing us to enjoy a piece of Mullinnix history.

Thanks to BT3 Greg "Bo" Bohmert for the Boiler Plate!!
Also, thanks to FTG1 Tom Demko for the loan of the P Coat!!
And finally, thanks to the signal-crew for looking the other way, while the signal flags "fell into my seabag"!!






It appears that the Mullinnix bell may NOT be going back to a crate in a dusty warehouse. The USS Barry DD-933 Memorial in Washington D.C. has made a request to permanently display the Mullinnix bell. On Friday 2 May, 2003 the Mullinnix Association, at their business meeting, voted unanimously in favor of this proposal.

However, as the fate of the Barry is up in the air this may not come to pass. Check out Forrest Sherman's Current Status for continued updates.

This is the P Coat I mustered out of the Navy with in 1974. Why the patch says "FTG1 Tom Demko" instead of Frank Wood, I don't have a clue. Do you Tom?
