The 1st Marine Division Association

1st Marine Division Emblem

Welcome to the 1st Marine Division Association web site. This site represents those who were part of or served in support of the finest fighting machine the world has known, the 1st Marine Division. Members of this Association are part of a proud history of service to the United States in both war and peace. A few are still serving while most have moved on to other endeavors. Yet they still retain that common bond that was acquired while serving with the Blue Diamond.

Throughout this site you can see a copy of our newsletter, The Old Breed News. You can see photos of the members and the camaraderie they enjoy, while meeting and talking with Marines who served in different times and places. The Association can be a valuable resource whether you are transitioning to civilian life or planning on enjoying your retirement. You can be part of an organization of veterans who understand that Duty, Honor and Commitment are not merely words.

So take your time and browse our web site and remember you can be part of the FMDA as a reward for service already committed to your country. Joining the 1st Marine Division Association may not get you a job, a car, or even a pat on back for your service but you will get to hang with Marines who understand. The Association is made of members from all walks of life.  You could meet others you have served with or you will meet veterans you would have liked to serve with. I have had the pleasure of meeting and talking with some of the greatest people on earth, men and women who served with or in support of the 1st Marine Division. Join the 1st Marine Division Association and we can share our experiences together.

 

 

The Marine Corps is a "Band of Brothers" and the First Marine Division Association (FMDA) represents the best of what our Corps stands for. This Association cuts across:

*Age Differences
*Rank Differences
*Race
*Socio/Economic Differences

The FMDA is an Association where Marines and Sailors who now serve, or who have served, come together as a “Family of Warriors” and share that unexplained Quality that makes us stand apart, known as “Esprit de Corps”

Our annual reunions and anniversary celebrations provide a venue for all generations of Warriors to gather and enjoy the Family of Arms that our beloved Division represents. We honor our past heroes and salute the current generation that is writing history in Iraq and Afghanistan today and on unknown shores tomorrow.

 

Our Magazine, The Old Breed News, provides current information on our Corps as well as maintaining the memory of our past glory.

Our Outreach Program pledges that we, the “Older Brothers” of our family stand ready to mentor our younger brothers and sisters and assist their children with our Scholarship Program and a helping hand from our local chapters. We stand ready to help them relocate after their active service, find employment and receive benefits of service that have been promised.
