Detachment Membership the first 20 years

“No one should pass an American in uniform without saying, “Thank you, we are grateful. Always mindful that they are prepared to risk all their dreams so that all of us can reach ours.”

As an organization that holds traditions in high esteem, we believe it only fitting that we recognize that during this month 20 years ago this detachment was founded on 16 March 1994. 26 original Marines got together to sign up to form the treasure Valley Detachment. Of those original plank holders only 5 are still actively on our rolls. While many moved on to other endeavors, three passed on while in service to the detachment. Let us mark this event with a remembrance of those passed and a grateful thank you for those still with us.

They are:

Charles A. Goss
Donald E. Griffith
Robert (Monty) MacConnell
David L. Paulson
Patrick D. Teague

In the twenty years of the Treasure Valley detachment over 300 Marines of the Treasure Valley have been signed up and served.
