I have been checking this website on and off for a few years in an attempt to find members of the Bujumbura, Burundi Detachment from 1988-89. I don't see pictures in the photo album from way back. I have some pictures from that great group of guys. I guess I am gonna have to join to be able to post some of those memories in this great site. Members of the detachment: SSGT. Richard D. Betzinger, Sgt. Oscar Rodriguez Jr., Sgt. Arthur Davis Jr., Cpl. Karl Atkins, Cpl. Steve Miller, and Cpl. Terrance Sellars. This Detachment was awarded the "Best Detachment of the Year" and the "Physical Fitness Award" for Company "F" Africa before the company was divided. I will never forget those guys. If anyone here knows them and have their contact information, please let me know. Semper Fi! Former SSGT, Oscar Rodriguez Jr. USMC
SSgt/GySgt Tom W. Maness was the DetCmdr at Jeddah, Saudi Arabia from 83-85 and Riyadh 85-86. Returned back to Quantico, VA and became an Instructor at MSG School. Sgt Don Block, Mike Johnston, and others are here in your photo album. It was good to see them again. Semper Fidelis, Angela Maness SgtMaj (ret)

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.
