Sneads Ferry, NC

June 27 – 30, 2019

Reunions are a great time to renew old friendships and make new ones. This year’s reunion in Sneads Ferry, Jacksonvile, Camp Lejeune, and Onslow Beach, flashes us back to memories of past exploits and gives us the rare opportunity to build new ones with family, friends and with the active duty personnel from today’s Battalion. All past and present 2D Recon personnel are welcome to attend - Marines and Sailors, all MOSs, active duty, retired or separated, Association members, non-members, family and friends.

Activities and Agenda

Activities will include evening socials and gathering by the pool, golf or fishing for those who desire, a day at the beach, a sumptuous Association banquet and, best of all, a day with the Battalion. Major timeline of events still being developed:
