The Recon Marines of the 2010 Bravo Company, 1st Recon Battalion Afghanistan Deployment endured a grueling and challenging deployment that would create an never ending bond between them. These Marines come together every year to bond and share a brotherhood wherever they may be in life.
June 3-8, 2019 a Team of 12 Recon Marines will come together after months of hard-work and training to take on Mount Baker. Mount Baker is the 3rd highest summit in Washington State and the iciest mountain in the Cascade Range. They will have to navigate glaciers, crevasse fields, and possible avalanches hazards. Mount Baker is a Stratovolcano topping off at 10,778 ft. The Team will take five days to complete the mountain. Within those five days they will train for the challenges they will face and then summit the Volcano.
These Recon Marines want to give back to their Recon Community by raising money for the Force Recon Foundation while completing this mission. They have committed to raising $100,000 for the Force Recon Foundation.
The Force Recon Foundation is a 501(c)(3) tax-deductible charity organization established in 2014 with a mission to provide charitable support, in the form of scholarships and financial assistance to the Recon Community and their families, both past and present. The Force Recon Foundation is closely affiliated with, and supported by the Force Recon Association. The Force Recon Association has been around since the 1980’s and is a well-established organization that continues to support the Recon Community every day.
