Why Join the MCTA?

The Marine Corps Tankers Association is an elite, close knit group who have earned a highly respected reputation within the brotherhood and history of the United States Marine Corps. Within a few short years the Association grew from a handful of Tankers to over one thousand Marine warriors located throughout the USA and overseas.

The Membership includes warriors who have participated in every battle where Marine tanks were committed in support of a Marine infantry unit. Tank unit battle honors commenced prior to and during WWII, Korea, Vietnam, Iraq, Afghanistan and many smaller missions in between.

To be eligible for membership one must be an honorably discharged or retired Marine, on active duty or a member of the Marine reserve. This person must have served within a Marine Tank Battalion or been attached to any Marine Tank Unit
in any support function.
