WELCOME Marines,
of the USMC  "HAWK"  Light Anti-Aircraft Missile (LAAM)  Battalions.     

Since 10 November 1775, all Marines have been basic riflemen and served the Corps where needed,
from cook to computer operator. For a brief period in the Marine Corps time-line 1960 to 1997, just
37 years of over a 238+ year history, tens of thousands of Marines served and a few died, in the
 "HAWK"   Light  Anti - Aircraft  Missile  Bns.
Their unit histories may not include names like Tarawa, Iwo Jima or Inchon but the lineage of these
Cold War Marine units and the Marines, who answered the call to duty and deployed during the
Cuban Missile Crisis, to Da Nang and Chu Lai, in Vietnam and around the Persian Gulf, in Operations
Desert Shield/Desert Storm, placed these men and women in harm's way and forever bonded their
Warrior Spirit to those Marines who have come before and after.
