The Association incorporated in 1947 as a non-profit organization, and is open to membership for those who served in the 1st Marine Division at any time since it's formation in 1941. This applies equally to those who served with attached or supporting units, such as corpsmen, aviation units, Seabees, ships and other regiments, battalions and other uniformed services.
All administrative expenses are met by the association. Our chapter contributes to the following clubs and organizations: Shop with a Cop, Tri State Military Moms, Navy Relief, Semper Fi Fund, Wounded Warriors and several other community groups. A major focus is to assist Marine Veterans in need.
The Colorado Chapter is a tax exempt 501 (c) (3).
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.
Members are kept well informed of matters of interest in the Association through "The Old Breed News".
