National Montford Point Marine Association, Inc.

We are your first port of call for quality information

Twenty years following World War II, in August 1965, a reunion was organized by a group of enterprising Marine veterans and active duty Marines from Philadelphia.


The purpose of the reunion was to renew old friendships and share experiences of former comrades who received recruit training at Montford Point Camp, Camp Lejeune, New River, North Carolina from 1942 - 1949.


This group, chaired by then Master Gunnery Sergeant, Brooks E. Gray, USMC, held a meeting in Philadelphia, Pennsylvania, and formulated and developed plans for a National Reunion.


Now in existence for over fifty years, the National Montford Point Marine Association, Inc. continues to strive to expand its programs and offerings to the community.


We hope that you will be able to take part in one or more of the many exciting events during our 54th anniversary and experience firsthand the pride we take in supporting our cause and preserving the legacy of our WWII veterans of Montford Point Camp that we will offer in Charlotte, North Carolina.


It is our mission to Preserve the Legacy. In order to meet our mission and provide services in our community, we rely on the generosity of individuals and businesses for support. Without the assistance from community-minded individuals just like you, we wouldn't be able to serve those in our community each year.


Our goal is to conduct and oversee activities throughout the year that create camaraderie, goodwill, and esprit de corps in harmony with Chapters and the Montford Point Marine legacy
