I would, also, like to thank Fred Samarelli for trying to bring us into the future concerning our website. For me, a techno-dummy, he makes it easy to use.

Dear Sirs, I am sorry to use the Guestbook to post this but I couldn't find any other way to contact you as a non-member. I have recently been getting an enormous amount of spam mail with this root address in the header marine-embassy-guard-association.googlegroups.com. A different identifier is attached to this address for each email so it is impossible to block it. I am not thinking you are responsible for this, only that someone has either hacked your account or is misusing your name. And I wanted to call it to your attention. I have the utmost respect for who you are and what you do.

To all Embassy Marines. It is with a heavy heart that I tell you Don Whitton, founder, and president of Sgt. Grit's Marine Specialties, (due to ill health), has sold his company to another in Arkansas. (I do not have the name of the other company as of yet). The other company will retain the name: Sgt. Grit's, and Marine items will be sent from Arkansas.

So sad to hear of Stewart Grant's passing. MEGA lost a great supporter of our organization. My condolences to his family. I got to know Stewart over the years through our MEGA connections, and what a fine gentleman he was. He will be mightily missed by me and I'm sure all who came in contact with him. Semper Fi Stu.

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.
