    Yes Corporal Dennis Betz from our weapons platoon passed away.I believe Staff Sergeant Perry retired as a Sgt Major.I actually wrote a book about the mission Operation Eastern Exit titled Night Mission To Mogadishu.My website is the same as the title of my book .com.When you go on my website you will see a comment from one of the American Diplomats that was rescued on the talk with the author link.It is good to hear from a Marine that was there.

    Wow.. yep that was him. Cpl Betz. I would have never pictured Staff Sgt Miller Perry as a Sgt Major but thats awesome. I played spades with him from time to time. He was a character.

    You are correct it was 9 Navy Seals from Seal Team 8.I was a team leader with Charlie Company 1/2 that went on the mission.The rescue force was a 60 man rescue force combined of 46 Marines from Charlie Company 1/2 1 Marine Our Battalion Commander Lt.Col McAleer 4 Marines from BSSG and 9 Navy Seals with Seal Team 8.If you Goggle Operation Eastern Exit by Adam Siegel you will see a accurate extensive report on the mission.He was a civilian reporter on board the U.S.S. Guam

    My name is Troy Smith, I was aboard the USS Trenton during Operation Eastern Exit. Their were definitely Seals aboard the Trenton. Whether they were involved in the evacuation, I do not know. I was a Lance Corporal at the time with the 4th MEB.

    I was one of the Embassy staff who was evacuated from the Mogadishu. There were a number of SEALs in the landing group. I believe they were from SEAL Team 7, and were based on the Trenton. But the Marines carried the load in the evac. Semper fi, and thanks.
