I was in the BJC in early 1967. I have a group picture, of the choir taken, in March '67. The CO's were D.D. Helm QMC, also G.T. Dunn RD1, and R.P. Savelle BM1. My training group, in the choir, was Division 6 Grad. Class. A week after I graduated, the Choir sang the National Anthem, at  San Diego Padre's Opening day Game. While I was, in the Choir, we sang, at the Seabee's 25th Anniversary Celebration.

Having been in the BJC just ahead of you, we probably had the same CO's. We had a Chief by the name of Helm. I still remember he was from the reserves out of Hawaii. A real cracker he was. He was a hellion I remember from BJC. We also had 2 First Class PO's, One of them had been a 4050 Commander. I don't remember the First Class names.
