Move America Forward is proud to announce we are supporting the 1st Marine Division, the oldest, largest, and most decorated division in the United States Marine Corps.
They support the Global War on Terrorism by providing fully trained units and personnel in support of on-going Operation IRAQI FREEDOM/Operation ENDURING FREEDOM, MEU(SOC), and UDP requirements.
To maximize our mission of supporting our troops who are on the front lines of the War on Terror, we’ve adopted a battalion of Marines in the 5th Marine Regiment who are serving on the front lines in Afghanistan.
Currently, the battalion has 800 brave Marines fighting in Afghanistan that need Care Packages. Over the next several weeks we will campaign to send care packages to all 800 of the Marines that bravely serve in the 1st Battalion, 5th Marines.
They really need your help!
The 1st Marine Division or the “Old Breed” has nine Presidential Unit Citations or PUCs and is made up of a Headquarters Battalion, the 1st, 5th, 7th, and 11th Marine Regiments, 1st Reconnaissance Battalion, 1st and 3d Light Armored Reconnaissance Battalions, 1st Tank Battalion, and 3d Assault Amphibian Battalion.
These units represent a combat-ready force of more than 22,000 Marines and Sailors who provide a ground combat element (GCE) in the I Marine Expeditionary Force (I MEF), providing task-organized forces for assault operations, amphibious forcible entry and subsequent land operations in any operational environment.
Our first mission for the 1st Marine Division is to send our support to the 1st Battalion, 5th Marines who deployed to Afghanistan in support of Operation ENDURING FREEDOM or as Battalion Landing Teams (BLTs) for deployment with Marine Expeditionary Units (MEUs), Special Operations Capable (SOC), or in order to support I MEF operations and training in the PACOM and CENTCOM AORs.
Their standing mission is to deploy to any operating environment and defeat our enemies across the entire spectrum of warfare.
Help us reach every single one of our Marines, giving them the personal thanks they deserve. Each of our care packages have items they can use as soon as they open the box, everything from fresh coffee, treats and hygiene products simply not available to them on the front lines.
5th Marine regiment has a long and incredible history in the annals of the USMC. The unit was first created in 1914 Vera Cruz, Mexico July 13, 1914 and has served in every major conflict since then. The brave men and women that make up this elite force are nicknamed “GERONIMO!”
