According to new info received from GySgt Fox, the company finally got out to their Forward Operation Base (FOB). He indicates things are going well as they replace 1/9. He says if "any of the warriors of the past want to send out some motivation to the boys", you can address it to him and he will get it out. The address for your letters & packages is:

GySgt Fox NG
2d Bn 9th Mar
Unit 74130

I appreciate the info also. We heard they are no longer a raider boat company as they were when I was with them in Somolia. Since they were a SOC unit, there was only 12 guys in the platoon. Depending on their current status, there may be considerably more now.
We would like to know how many guys are in the platoon currently (FOX 2/9), as we would like to send along care packages for Christmas.
If anyone could get us that info we would really appreciate it. Our boys sure deserve to know we are thinking of them!
Personal email address is (amyinwv@yahoo.com)
