Unit of the Year 2022


The official TERMINAL LANCE UNIT OF THE YEAR 2022 is 3RD BATTALION, 3RD MARINES, who just returned home from deployment.

I’ll admit, this contest was rigged. 3/3 is my old alma mater, and I’m awarding them this honor as a a bittersweet goodbye. The K-Bay unit stands to be deactivated in early 2023 as part of a force redesign.

As far as Unit of the Year goes, it was almost 3/6 for their incredible shenanigans this year, but a few Marines from 3/3 actually came out to see me in Okinawa last month since they were on the island, which got them some major brownie points.

In the storied history of 3/3, my time with the unit was relatively brief, but I’ll never forget the days at Mackie Hall and abroad.

Godspeed and fair winds, America’s Battalion.
