Mustangs Still Run Together

The Marine Corps Mustang Association is made up of US Marines who served as enlisted men and worked their way up to the ranks of commissioned officers. There are 1,600 members in five chapters. Not too long ago on continents not far away, these men fought for the American way of life. Decades have passed, but they still enjoy each other’s company and hold frequent reunions.

Florida has one of the largest chapters, which meets four times a year. Reunions have included riding in amphibious assault vehicles, visiting the Naval Aviation museum and country western themes.

The Florida chapter is sponsoring this year’s National Marine Mustang Convention at Daytona Beach, Florida, in September. Visits to The Kennedy Space Center and St. Augustine are just a couple of the fun things in store. Membership is open to Marines who served on active duty as enlisted men, then became commissioned or warrant officers. The association is always looking for new members.
