Attention Vietnam Marines.

Attention Marines that have served in 2d Tank Battalion!

Our Restoration team is restoring a 2d Tank Battalion M151A2 TOW jeep and they are seeking PHOTOS of the jeep and the Marines that crewed them from the time period 1982-84.

Photos that show hood numbers, tactical markings, and equipment loading would be very helpful. If you have photos of the jeep with hood number 500296, those would be extremely helpful!

Please pass the word!

"The Marine Corps is an indispensable branch of the Naval Service [and] a gallant little band upon which rests the most widely extended duties at home and in every sea and clime, without sufficient numbers to perform them.”

Stop Soldier Suicide

This is the essence of our desire - no, our obligation - to fight on their behalf.

We’re going to reduce the military suicide rate by 40% by 2030. It’s not a hope. It’s a promise.

T'was the season of Christmas

No presents. No ribbons.
No boxes. No bows.
No peace on earth
would we know.

We carry our burdens
shoulder our packs
it's just another day
and no coming back.

But there'll be Angels rising
from these fields,
Souls will be carried upon
our backs.
and of prayers and blessings
there will be no lack.

T'was the season of Christmas
and here in this Valley,
under this dome,
Christ is calling
his children...
...home.

Marines and Japanese troops train together to capture islands, coastal areas

Fighting alongside someone who doesn’t speak the same language isn’t unusual for the Marines, he said.

“Over the last 20 years we’ve been doing it in Iraq and Afghanistan,” said the veteran of deployments to Afghanistan in 2005 and 2010.

“We are not dealing with Afghans with the JGSDF,” he said. “These guys are capable. They are lethal. We are going to learn some stuff from them.”

Five hundred members of the 3rd Battalion, 8th Marine Regiment out of Camp Lejeune, N.C., are working with 400 troops from the Japan Ground Self-Defense Force’s 30th Infantry Regiment, their commander, Lt. Col. Neil Berry, said in a telephone interview Sunday from Camp Fuji, outside Tokyo.

The story of the first Black Marines lives on in this North Carolina town

Just a minor note of correction. The article states there were no Black Marines from 1775 until 1941. There were many Continental Marines of African origin who fought in the Revolutionary War, including two who fought alongside George Washington at the Battle of Princeton. Once we had won our independence, however, the Continental Marines were disbanded along with the Navy. Once reconstituted as the Marine Corps in 1798, there were no Black recruits from that year until 1941.

An oft-overlooked history.

Loudoun County Firefighters Participate in 2020 Online Toys for Tots Campaign

The Loudoun County Combined Fire and Rescue System and the Loudoun Career Firefighters Association are pleased to announce their participation in the 73rd Annual Toys for Tots Campaign.
Due to the COVID-19 pandemic, the Loudoun County Toys for Tots coordinators have adapted their 2020 campaign to continue providing toys to local children in need while avoiding unnecessary safety risks. This year, rather than collecting toys at local firehouses, Loudoun County Toys for Tots representatives will be purchasing toys with funds donated online and shipping them directly to the children.
“Our firefighters are proud to carry on the tradition of providing holiday spirit to less fortunate children across our region” states System Chief Keith H. Johnson. “Although our collection efforts look a little different this year as we focus on online donations, I am confident the generosity of Loudoun’s residents will brighten this holiday season for many children.”

To donate online: Visit the local Loudoun County Toys for Tots website, https://loudoun-va.toysfortots.org and click on the “Donate Local” red button on the top right of the home page.

To donate by check, make check payable to “Toys for Tots” and mail to:

Our Story

The Detachment's major community contribution is the annual Toys for Tots drive. Christmas of 2019 saw the members of the Detachment and over 300 volunteers from Loudoun and Western Fairfax counties collect, sort, package and deliver over 30,000 toys to needy children. The Detachment sponsors Toys for Tots fund raising events during the year, provides color guards for community activities and sends care packages to deployed Loudoun County Marines. Membership is open to all Marines. Auxillary membership is also open to members from sister services and non-military community members.
