Col (Ret) David S. Jones is with U.S. Marine Forces Europe & Africa in Böblingen, Germany. As a part of their "Know your history" effort, they are setting up one of our display cases at MARFOREUR/AF in Germany that will have a "Marines in Beirut 1982-1984" presentation and he was reaching out to see if anyone had anything they would want to donate to the display from their service in Beirut. As you can see from the photo, they have mostly half mannequins that they are displaying with period uniforms, items, photos, etc. The display will be shared with a Somalia 1993 mannequin as well.
They're looking to see if anybody has any part of their uniform (cammie utilities, deuce gear, etc.) that they would like to donate to the cause.
If you have items you would like to donate, please contact Mark T. Hacala,
Master Chief Hospital Corpsman(Fleet Marine Force)U.S. Navy (Ret), at
