Just wondering where is the best place to find old buddies from the service.I've found a few sites but they yielded unsat results. I keep in touch with one old bud but can't locate the rest of them. Also how do I find out if they are still on active duty? some of them may still be in. I've been out of the Corps. since Aug 1998 and the guard since Dec 2001

It may sounds silly, but it seems like everybody has myspace or facebook page these days. Even the people that you would least expect... Just search by name.

I've found quite a few on TogetherWeServed (http://marines.togetherweserved.com).

Just reconnected with a buddy from 31 years back that I last saw at the Stumps in SoCal. Facebook is awesome, there are groups for bases and posts and even units. If you don't see anybody you know just leave a post on the wall with names you are looking for.

The down side is all those kids you left in Olongapo and Incirlik can find you too.

Beat me to it and Facebook as well. It's the only way to keep in touch since my buddy, who married my cousin, is now a CHiPie in SoCal.
