I have read this book many times, it always seems fresh, it is a true story of brotherhood. If you have an interest in the
The aim of this re-enactment group is to portray THIRD FORCE RECON COMPANY to the best of our ability, this means Collecting the correct kit and uniform, studying the books by LT COL A LEE and MAJOR BRUCE "DOC" NORTON.
I formed Third Force Recon Company, in 2001, after being with a US NAVY SEALS re-enactment group for a year, the Seal group were good, but after reading about US Marine Force Reconnaissance, in Vietnam, I was so impressed with the Marine Reconnaissance Units, I wanted to start my own group, I read twelve or more books on the Marine Recon Units in Vietnam, In 2002 I battled on the AIRCAV site in Wales, with Kevin Parsons and his Aircav guys, at that time, 3d Force Recon Company USMC living History Group were the only reconnaissance group around, this gave a new perspective to re-enactment, contacts and fire fights were to be avoided at all costs, as to be seen in the bush by the NVA unit during battle weekends, meant our mission was compromised. This is how our group will operate during battle weekends, we are not a gung ho group that wants plenty of trigger time, our objective is to find the enemy and radio their position to other Army/Marine units. If we do make contact then the IA Drills/contact drills, we practice will be used, so we can get clear of hostile units.
So if you are interested in joining a small friendly group that wants to get things right and wants to recreate a Force Recon mission with all the detail of a patrol, then contact me, Forcerecon1969@aol.com if on the other hand you just want to turn up to a battle wear the gear and not really be interested in all the detail that does with our group, then we are not the unit for you. We want guys that want to be a part of a Marine Recon Group.
