The Third Marine Division

The 1st Battalion 3rd Marines is an official chapter of the Third Marine Division Association. Though this web site is open to all who served with 1/3, membership in the Association is required to be a voting member of our chapter. If you are not a member, we encourage you to do so. It will most likely be the second best organization you have ever joined.

Benefits of being a Chapter in the 3rd Division Association

  • All of the logistics of organizing meeting facilities, hotel rooms, and activities have already been set up for us.
  • We have a large number of members who regularly attend the Annual Reunions.
  • The Association's newsletter gives us a forum to spread the word about our chapter to Marines who might not hear of us other wise.
  • We are able to enjoy the company of Marines of other units and eras at our reunions.
  • By unifying as an official chapter, we can become a more powerful voice in the Association's policy making decisions.
