Membership application approved December 31, 2021  This is our 25th newest member for 2021. "Doc Skrapits thanks for helping us grow as an organization."

Message to 1st Recon Battalion Association: It's been a long time. I was a utility "doc" so I ran with many different patrols. Apparently patrol leaders trusted me because I ran on a few missions. I feel extremely proud to have been accepted as a "doc" with the finest Marines I've ever known. God bless you all!
