“Serving Our Marines Since 1989”

 

Updated 20 August 2018

 

The following men served in Alpha Company 3rd Reconnaissance Battalion during the Vietnam War. Each name has been verified as serving with the company. This listing has been a project that has been ongoing since 1989. These names represent those men that we have made contact with, were killed in action during the war, or have deceased since. It does not represent a complete listing of all that served. The available records from the Marine Corps Archives in many instances are not readable therefore a complete listing of all that served is impossible to determine from the unit monthly rosters. However other records exist and the knowledge of our men enable us to verify service with the company.

There are many names we are aware of not listed here. This listing only represents those we have located over the years. Currently over 654 names are listed. If you served with Alpha Company 3rd Recon Bn and your name does not appear here, or have information to assist us in contacting with those that are missing, please contact George Neville.
