Particular emphasis is given to the support of Marine tankers, especially those of the 2d Tank Battalion, 2d Marine Division, as well as other armed service personnel and their families.
Marine Corps Tankers Association
The MCTA was formed as a non-profit, 36 years ago in 1973 at Carlsbad, California. The original members were a small group of retired Marine Tankers. All were senior staff non-commisioned officers. Most of them were survivors of tank combat during WWII, Korea and Vietnam. These men had a desire to stay in touch with former comrades-in-arms, meet new tankers, remain in touch with friends and show support and encouragement to active duty Marine Tankers. The Membership includes warriors who have participated in every battle where Marine tanks were committed in support of a Marine infantry unit.
