The 3rd Recon Association is a non-profit veteran's organization dedicated to the Marines and Navy Corpsmen who served in the 3rd Reconnaissance Battalion in combat. This Website is the Association's attempt to honor the Marines and Corpsmen of the battalion and to provide historical information on the involvement of the battalion’s members during those years. We also hope this website will enable members and supporters of the Association to register and research the locations of friends and teammates with whom they served. While every effort has been made to maintain complete, updated and accurate information, the site is not an official source for information about the Vietnam conflict or the United States Marine Corps.

All links to this Website must meet the basic criteria as stated above and be approved by the 3rd Recon Association before any links can be attached. As a non-profit organization, we insist that no links be established for individual commercial purposes and profit.
