Welcome to the webpage of the First Battalion of the Seventh Marine Regiment - Vietnam.
The 1/7 Marine Vietnam Association is comprised of the Marines and Corpsmen who served in that Battalion in the Republic of South Vietnam from 1965-1970.
If you are a Marine or Corpsman who served in 1/7 in Vietnam we would like to hear from you and we invite you to join us. We meet every two years at a time around Memorial Day. The 2020 reunion will take place in Palm Springs, CA, with a day trip to 29 Palms to meet current 1/7 Marines. Family members of those who served with 1/7 are also invited to attend and meet the men who served with their loved one.
The Marine Corps is unique and rich with tradition that we respect. We are often joined at our gatherings by Marines currently on active duty. It is our pleasure to share with them the history of 1/7 in Vietnam.
Our reunions provide an opportunity for Marines to visit and share time with those with whom they served 50 years ago and to honor the 566 Marines and Corpsmen who made the ultimate sacrifice.
In addition to being an organizational hub for members of 1/7 Vietnam, this website is a source of information for families of 1/7 members, active duty Marines and members of the public who want to learn about the 1st Battalion of the 7th Marine Regiment and its role in the Vietnam war and the men who served in that unit.
