The conception of Sigma Gamma Gamma chapter started developing the spring of 1984 at that time the number of brothers associated with what we now called Sigma Gamma Gamma was approximately 15 brothers. The brothers had crossed the burning sands from throughout the United States. The future members of the chapter could not be determined due to the many rotations required of the military community. However, the nucleus of the brotherhood stood fast on the four cards and persevered through the changing of the guards.

After many hours of meetings the brothers still could not formulate a plan to satisfy the requirement for a graduate chapter. The body continued to meet and became instrumental in the development of a local Pan-Hellenic Council in the spring of 1985. The brothers work with the Pan-Hellenic to plan and co-ordinate the first ever Martin Luther King inaugural banquet at the Kadena NCO club in January 1986.

The event’s success truly reflected the hard work put into the function by the brothers. After such a successful event, the brothers with assistant of the Pan-Hellenic Council planned the first ever Greek picnic held at the 18th civil engineer picnic area.

While continuing to support the local community, the brothers never lost sight of having a chapter on Okinawa. By the spring of 1986, the faithful few that remained on Okinawa were once again looking for the opportunity to carry out the goal of starting a chapter. Even though the number of brothers had reached approximately 30 in total, none of them were financial with Nationals; this within itself posed a sufficient problem for the body.

Reaching back and remembering “See it Through” the brothers decided the best way to solve this problem was to meet it head on. With this in mind, one of many calls were made to Dr. John Epps at the National Office and, under his guidance, the brothers received a clearer path on the process to becoming the second international chapter located in the land of the far east.
