Looking for a Few Good Men and Women
Here we are!
Since its conception in 1775, The United States Marine Corps has set the standard for America's fighting forces. There is a pride and loyalty among Marines that cannot be be matched by any other organization in the world. From Bougainville to the DMZ, in war and in peacetime, the men and women of The Third Marine Division have been an essential part of the Marine Corps, serving their country with unyielding dedication and sacrifice. There is no such thing as an ex-Marine. Once you have earned the title, it becomes part of you forever.
The Third Marine Division Association is committed to keeping this fellowship alive. We are an exclusive organization. Only those who have honorably served with or were attached in support of The Third Marine Division are eligible to be members. Associate membership is open to those who are legal dependents, parents, or spouses of those persons living and deceased who are, or were, eligible for regular membership.

What We Have to Offer
We, as members of The Third Marine Division Association, continue to take care of our own. Through our funding programs like the Memorial Scholarship Fund, we help our members who are in need of assistance.
We are a family who is proud of our past. The Association gives us the opportunity to get back in touch with the tradition, the values, and the pride that makes a Marine such a special breed.
At our annual reunions, we have the chance to reacquaint ourselves with Marines we knew in the past. Marines of all eras, all ranks, and all backgrounds attend these activities. Who knows, the buddy you have never forgotten may be there looking for you.
The Association helps keep us abreast of what is happening in the Marine Corps today.
