If anyone from the Fusiliers is out there, let me know. I am looking for video of the Arabian & orange years of the Fusiliers if anyone has access to that. That would be 1984 & 1985 Fusiliers of Pitman/Barnsboro, NJ

Bobby Cook -- I think I remember you and I think one of the photos I have is of you (on the floor during competition - shhh!!)   I remember some of your fellow members -- Chelsea (she had a crewcut with some long strands of bleach blonde hair in the front), and there was a woman with dark brown/black hair with light colored streaks in the front, and I remember a really tall and skinny guy with a very tan complexion and dark curly hair. And I believe a very good looking Latino guy marched with you -- his name was Ozzy.  Is this right???

I was not a Fusilier, but I was a Fusilier "fan" back in the day!  I belonged to a competing guard from Rutgers University (RU KnightRaiders) and I marched from 1983 to 1986 (when we folded).  I know I took photos of the Fusliers where they wore light orange satin jackets and a white unitard underneath. If I could find them, I will definitely post them here!! They also used huge turquoise "fans" at the end of their show. Their music that season was by SHADOWFAX (on their album - "The Dreams of Children"). The opening song of the Fusiliers show was  "The Big Song" and the closer was "Another Country". Both are on YouTube!!

I instructed Fusiliers in the comeback year, 1985 I believe it was. I don't have any video of it though. I wish I did. If you are talking about the year they scored a 26 at Black Watch's show and a 96 in Wildwood that was the year. They also received Most Improved Color Guard that year.

I am not sure the name of the song or who did it. I do however have a DVD of the Arabian year & the orange year also the following 2-3 years after that - I had aged out after the Orange year. If you would like a copy I will see if I can get one for you.

Hey there, can anyone tell me the name and artist of the opening song that the Fusiliers used in 1985 (I think?)...the "orange and white" year? And yes, speaking of videos...are there any available of the Fusiliers? Many thanks!

I marched with Fusiliers their first year out. Would love to see videos from then and later! Will have to check with Ken. I'm sure he's the only one with an archive of those days...

Hey Bobby, I think Ken and Michelle Daminger still live in the same house in Pitman, NJ. You might want to try and contact them. I also think they owned a feed store or something near by called Daminger's. I bet they still have videos. I marched Fusiliers in 88 and 89. I lived in Delaware but would sleep at there house alot. I remember them showing me old videos of Fusiliers so it's a good chance they could help you. And they had old T-shirts and equipment. If you get your hands on any videos, please post them! It would bring back some great memories! Good luck :)

Please help me!

I'm proud to have been a part of the Golden Sabers because it was the best year of my life! Only, I don't know what year that was. I know, who could forget the best year of their life? Me, I'm terrible with dates. I was told it was 1983 & I hope you can either confirm that or correct it for me. We dressed up as clowns & our 1st song was circus themed, our 2nd was Abracadabra, & our last was Out Here on my Own (from the tv show Fame). I got chills EVERY time!! I was the flag…See More
