3rd Battalion 3rd Marines (3/3) is an infantry battalion in the United States Marine Corps consisting of approximately 800 marines and sailors. Known as "America's Battalion", the unit falls under the 3rd Marine Regiment of the 3rd Marine Division. The battalion was formed in 1942 and saw action on both Bougainville and Guam during World War II. Following the war the battalion was alerted for possible deployment during the 1956 Suez Crisis and the 1958 Lebanon crisis. From 1965 to 1969 the marines of 3rd Battalion were deployed to the Vietnam War and participated in Operation Starlite. In 1975 the battalion moved to Hawaii. In the 1980s 3rd Battalion deployed off the coast of Lebanon during the Lebanese Civil War.
