Golf Co. 2nd BN 24th Marines

Unit Reunion

GOLF Co. 2nd BN 24th MARINES UNIT REUNION

The Semper Fi Fund assisted Golf Company 2nd Battalion 24th Marines based out of Madison, WI with a unit reunion in the Wisconsin Dells observing the company’s 2004-2005 combat deployment to North Babil Province Iraq on February 17-19.

Golf Company’s area of operation fell within what has been dubbed, “The Triangle of Death” by the national media due to the amount of combat and sectarian violence during their tenure in Iraq.

The focus of the company level reunion was to commemorate the five KIA lost during the deployment, re-establish relationships, facilitate group healing, and honor the Gold Star families.

The highlight of the reunion was former Golf Company Commanding Officer Adam Holton as keynote speaker. The Marines had direct access to outreach coordinators from the Veterans Administration and Vet Centers.
