I was in Bonn, Germany from 1974-1976. Am I eligible for an MSG ribbon or did they make MSG a separate MOS? Anyone from Bonn around?
Semper Fi to all, I'm finally back on line and looking forward to introducing my new bride to MEGA at our 2018 reunion! I hope to introduce Anh (Vietnamese spelling) to everyone including wives especially if there are other Vietnamese women there. I am hoping to bringing up on the floor the idea of going back to highlighting different detachments at our reunions - I think it is a great way to encourage members to reach out to the Marines they shared a post with.
Just Checking in.. Stationed in Lima, Peru 1972 to 1975

I was in Tokyo Japan from December 1973 to June 1976. i am looking for any of my old teammates from that time.
I graduated in Dec 65, Class 3-66, and out posted to Dhahran, Saudi in Jan 66 thru Jan 67 then to Athens, Greece from Jan 67 thru Jun 68. I have had contact with one MSG from each post. Are there any others that were in my class or with whom I was stationed? Would enjoy making contact and catching up.

Looking for other Marines that served in New Delhi india 1971 to 1972 Tokyo Japan 1972 to 1974
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

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
