The story that mentions the possible Marines involvement with TAR in 2010 is still available. It's mentioned at the very end of the story.

http://www.marinecorpstimes.com/news/2010/01/marines_ontap_010110w/

However, after doing further research, I find that while the US has 28,500 soldiers stationed in South Korea, less than 250 are Marines. They are stationed at Camp Mujuk which is at Pohang on the east coast of South Korea and not particularly near Dongducheon. I wouldn't completely rule out TAR doing something with Marines in South Korea as they apparently fly Marines in periodically for exercises, but involvement with the US Army or US Air Force seems much more likely since they have about 28,000 of the 28,500 troops stationed there. This might be one of those cases where we won't have any evidence until the weekly previews get released by CBS.

The article on the link says "possible Marine appearences"  there is a chance that it may not happen due to the article was out in January and changes can occur between when it was publish til now.  Keep reading military news articles online or lookup U.S. military bases news and see what is going on.

Okay...if TARA 4 has not yet started (possibly)...then this sighting would have to be TAR 17.

I like the idea of this being the Marine involvement! :hearts:

So apprently they may be here?

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Camp_Casey,_South_Korea

awaiting more info...

Two things:

It is not TARA...

And heard back again from the source:

Location:

Near the Boeson Station in DoUngduchon area at Camp Casey

Apparently that was an advance crew....

An advance crew? Does that mean a crew that comes to set up the challenges or does it mean an "advanced" crew? ???

The source believes that since it is a millitary base, that they were required to have a "rehersal". Real event not happening this week.

Looks like Bahasa Melayu... I'll ask my friend for help, but in the meantime:
wawancara = interview
peserta = participant
selama 5 menit = for 5 minutes
lg = lagi? = more
lumayan = more than enough
wajah = face
msk = masuk? = enter
acara = programme
negara paman sam = Uncle Sam's country = USA
Found out that Neobie in Chinese means "f*king awesome"! No, really. Look it up!

ok I'm Indonesian so I'll translate: "Interview (he probably meant having a convo) for 5 minutes with the teams of the American reality show The Amazing Race in the departure hall of the Oman airport. Then I have to sign something (most likely the waiver). Not bad, I'll be on American tv". If you want, I can ask him additional details in Indonesian. PM me the name. Oh & I would need tips on what questions to ask aside from team colors & physical characteristics.

So Oman is either a leg or a tranist point?

Ooh, maybe that's the Middle East country's leg before heading for Bangladesh!  I hope so, because we haven't seen Oman since TAR9!  (Still remembering Fran & Barry's win with fondness.)

Oman! this would be the 2nd time they visited the country in our race.  They visited countries that were visted once before and they return to them again.
TAR3/TAR16 (Singapore)
TAR13/TAR15 (Cambodia)
TAR3/TAR10 (Spain, Morocco)
TAR3/TAR14 (Switzerland)
TAR5/TAR15 (United Arab Emirates)
TAR5/TAR11 (Tanzania)
TAR5/TAR8 (Canada)

The guy in Oman just got back to me, he said he was talking to the turquoise team. He spotted a girl-girl team, but he wasn't sure whether it was the blue or the pink team, since they were far away.
He bumped into them 2 days ago, at nighttime.
Chad & Stephanie asked about the earliest flight to Bangladesh. They told him they're in a race & would lose if they can't get anything within 8 hours.
Anything else I should ask him about?

Never know.  The girls could've been the green ones.

So Chad & Stephanie are still in.  Officially, she lasted longer than the last Stephanie.  Points for anyone who remembers who that was.

The girls in green are both blonde. He said he saw a girl-girl team, one dark haired, the other a blonde.
Oh.  Definitely either blue or pink, then.

Just hoping the green ones are still around, I guess.

Oh!  Ask if the dark-haired girl had short or long hair.  Short means it's the pink girls.  Long means it's the blue girls.

Season 13.  Anthony and Stephanie.  2nd team eliminated.  I liked them.

The flight takes a minimum of 7 to 8 hrs.
