Kabul '66 to '67. New Delhi '67 to '68
I now notice that I did not mention my detachment in my previous message. It was Seoul, Korea. Are there any other "Seoul Mates" out there?
How many Marines were ever the NCOIC (our title in 1966) of a MSG Detachment as a Sgt (SSgt Selectee)? Their title now is Detachment Commander, I believe. I was for almost six months before I was relieved by a trained GySgt. I received no training. I received no recognition for it, not even a Letter of Appreciation. Should that take place now, I probably would have received a medal. Lawrence D. Pool GySgt USMC (Retired)
Looking for those that served in Togo and Stuttgart with me between 86-88 or in the fleet. Rbarton1492@gmail.com
I served Sudan from 1970 - 1971 as a security guard. Looking forward to the MEGA Reunion soon.
Looking for other Marines that served with me in Caracas, Venezuela from 1969 to 1971
Sorry that I did not make the Charleston re-union. Sounds like it was a good one! Bob
Excellent reunion this year in N. Charleston, SC! Had a great time and really enjoyed celebrating the Marine Embassy Guard History which was all around! There really is nothing quite like a "Marine Celebration" no matter the "Climb & Place". I'm excited to mark Quantico on the calendar for next year! Semper Fi, -Jeff

I was stationed in Khartoum, Sudan from 1969 - 1971 as a Marine Security Guard at our Interest Section. Because our Embassy had been closed due to the Israeli an Egyptian 7 Day War. I also was awarded the Navy Commendation Medal for action taken when our Interest Section came under fire from a Sudan Army Tank Unit during a counter Coue-da-ta.
Was a watch stander in Togo from 86-87 and in Stuttgart 87-88. Always looking for others that were there back then. Good times as a MSG. Waiting for the reunion to come back to California. Semper Fi
Was assigned to MSG Detachment, Manila, RP 1958-1960. Trying to locate a fellow detachment Marine Jerry Whiteside who was stationed there same time frame. Anyone having address, please email me. Thanks.
Graduated from MSG school at Henderson Hall Feb 17, 1972. Assigned to AMCONGEN, Hong Kong, from there I went to Peking and opened the new Liason Office there in May 1973 until June 1974 then on to Manila. Best duty ever had.
