U.S.S. Marvin Shields Association


This last June marked the 50th anniversary of CM3 Marvin G. Shields passing. Hosted by NAVFAC Northwest, the Navy put on a very impressive ceremony with a number of high-ranking officers from the Seabee community. Also in attendance were members of NMCB 11who served with Marvin Shields along with Special Forces Green Berets that were present during the battle at Dong Xoai in 1965. Most special was the opportunity to meet and chat with Joan Shields-Bennett who was married to Marvin Shields. A very special lady! We made sure she received one of our USS Marvin Shields association coins. Later she took our hand and palmed each of us a very special challenge coin representing Marvin Shields Medal of Honor.

In attendance from our association were, Dave & Marie Thomas, Mike & Debbie Schubert, Tom & Heidi Sigler and Bill & Barb Morgan. It was a very moving and special opportunity for all those in attendance.
