USMC 239th Birthday Photos{1}

A few of the action photos from the Detachment’s 239th USMC birthday celebration. Thanks to Laura Latham from  Soda Springs, ID, for the photos!


MGySgt Tony Meath, Honored Guest GySgt Bill Archer, and Youngest Marine Cpl Baldwin inspect the birthday cake.

Honored Guests Mr. and Mrs Dee Merrell (Cpl Merrell’s parents), GySgt Bill Archer, and Detachment Commandant LtCol Darin Letzring.

Mr.and Mrs Merrel now live in Boise, ID.

GySgt Bill Archer was Cpl Merrell’s Platoon Commander and spoke to detachment about who Cpl Merrell was, providing great insight into the detachment’s namesake. GySgt Archer travelled from his home in Tempe, AZ, and the detachment is ever-thankful for the opportunity to hear him talk.
