At 0800 every morning, right on the spot, we Marines raised the flag on the Glorietta observed daily by the Communist government regime who, one government official told me, they set their watches to our raising that flag. It was an interesting time being the 10th anniversary of Prague Spring, where the Russians had "invaded." We were challenged in 78 to maintaining security against intelligence intrusion, and you can assure they attempted. The people there were subject to everything your read about communist government, and we Marines observed grown men crying on the Charles Bridge during May Day. But, it was also the best embassy in the world to serve at, because our Marine House was filled with diplomats and personnel from every free world embassy in Prague, and then some. Our company was lead by an amazing Major Michael J. McGowan, a legend during his time in service. Semper Fi I hope you Marines are still raising that flag with the honor it deserves and that your service still impresses our enemies and friends alike. Rick Prescott Sgt. A/NCOIC Prague

I served with some amazing Marines at Athens, Greece, where I although I was a Sgt. I was the NCIOC until M/GySgt Windgate from Ankara came to take over. Some of the Marines who served at Athens have passed away, Sgt Rex Rixie from Wisconsin is one. Just in case someone knows him. He was an excellent Marine. Keep things in order there Marines! Glad to see you are still holding our grounds with honor. Semper Fi

Kevin Boyd Van Tassell, a retired police officer for Louisville, Ky.(retired in October 2015) passed away on 11-27-15. His obituary noted he was a former Marine and was an Embassy Guard. I was not able to locate which embassy he served. If anyone knows of Kevin and/or his service I would appreciate any information.

Ankara, Turkey (1964-1966) Semper Fi to my brothers-in-arms, especially those providing security at the posts in Ankara, Turkey! During my tenure in Ankara, I painted a large Marine Corps emblem in the middle portion of the stone wall in back of the old Marine House. The only paint available was green and white. Is any of it still visible? Also directed a popular physical fitness program. Any remnants around? Director, Special Security, Space & Defense (Ret)
