           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 244 year history,tens of thousands of Marines served and a few died,in the Corps

   "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.

                                 USMC HAWK...Semper Fidelis

Vietnam Wall

This is really sobering. First click on a state. When it opens, scroll down to the city where you went to high school and look at the
names. Click on the name and it will give details of the person's death, a picture or at least their bio and medals. This really is an
amazing web site. Someone spent a lot of time and effort to create it. I hope that everyone who receives this appreciates what those
who served in Vietnam sacrificed for our country. Pass the link on to others, as many know wonderful people whose names are

I just downloaded in our MEMBERS ONLY section, a video of our 2014 reunion in New Bern, NC, also, (4) hour length

Fellow HAWK Marines,

The USMC HAWK ASSOCIATION is again in the process of planning another reunion for Oct of 2020. Like our other reunions, I will request your opinions and ideas. The last reunion
planned for Harrisburg, PA in 2017 was supposed to be an east coast event. I’m going to keep our 2020 reunion on the east coast too and closer to home for me, this time.

Possible sites pick your choices 1, 2, or 3,

Pensacola, FL      with a day trip to NAS Pensacola US Navy Aviation Museum

Melbourne, FL      with day trip to Kennedy Space Center at Cape Canaveral

Savannah, GA      with day trip tour of Marine Corps Recruit Depot Parris Island (possible viewing graduation parade)

I’m looking at October 2020 for the reunion because the temperatures here in the south will be much cooler but very comfortable. I would like the schedule to be from Thursday –
Sunday. This will depend on what hotel rates we can get for a weekend. If we can’t get a good weekend rate, we may have to go just during the week. Once we get a location and time
frame, I will contact several reunion planner groups to see what they will charge or I may do it again myself, we'll see.

Thurs:   Welcome and get together, 50/50 raffle
Fri:        Day trip, 50/50 raffle
Sat:       Do your own thing or get together in morning, 50/50 raffle
           Afternoon prepare for evening banquet
           Evening Banquet, raffles, etc.
Sun:      Checkout & Goodbye until next time     
Possible dates pick your choices 1, 2, 3, 4 or 5

Oct 1-4
Oct 8-11
Oct 15-18
Oct 22-25
Oct 29-Nov 1

Thanks for your help
