SENNET's Binnacle List

A binnacle was the stand on which the ship's compass was mounted.   The binnacle list gets its name from the ancient nautical practice of posting the ship's sick list on the binnacle each morning for the captain.

Here is the binnacle list of our shipmates who are struggling with health issues and would apprectiate some encouragement.   Remember - a simple card, letter, email, or phone call can do wonders to cheer up your friends and shipmates.

Robert J. "Bob" Mullin   RM2(SS)  1958-60

I just received this e-mail from Robert Mullin’s son, Kevin:

(May 08, 2020)   My dad is struggling with Alzheimers’ and is in a memory care assisted living facility here in Rutland, VT.   He no longer uses email.   All his mail comes to my attention at 118 Ox Yoke Drive, Rutland, VT 05701.   Please give everyone from the USS Sennet his regards, but he will not likely be able to attend the reunion next year.

Kevin added, my dad would love to get cards.

You can send cards and words of encouragement to Bob Mullin at:
