The Marine Corps is a “Band of Brothers” and the FMDA represents the best of what our Corps stands for. This Association cuts across:
Age differences Rank differences Race/gender differences Socio/economic differences
The FMDA is an Association where Marines and Sailors who now serve, or who have served, come together as a “Family of Warriors” and share that unexplained Quality that makes us stand apart, known as “Esprit de Corps”.
Our annual reunions and anniversary celebrations provide a venue for all generations of Warriors to gather and enjoy the Family of Arms that our beloved Division represents. We honor our past heroes and salute the current generation that is writing history in Iraq and Afghanistan today and on unknown shores tomorrow.
Our Magazine, The Old Breed News, provides current information on our Corps as well as maintaining the memory of our past glory.
Our Outreach Program pledges that we, the “Older Brothers” of our family stand ready to mentor our younger brothers and sisters and assist their children with our Scholarship Program and a helping hand from our local chapters. We stand ready to help them relocate after their active service, find employment and receive benefits of service that have been promised.
