Thundering Third

The Marines of 3rd Battalion, 4th Marines, 7th Marine Regiment, unveiled their new command post aboard Marine Corps Air Ground Combat Center Twentynine Palms, California. Aug. 7, 2015.

The battalion was deactivated in May, 2014 after the Marine Corps began decreasing its footprint in order to comply with lowering its force size to about 175,000 as directed by congress. 

Due to the increasing operational requirements around the world, Headquarters Marine Corps authorized the reactivation of 3/4 starting October 1, 2015.

The battalion was first activated in 1925 in Naval Base San Diego. It has since been deactivated and reactivated seven other times to help the Corps tailor its forces to the mission at hand, including operations during World War II, the Vietnam War, Libya, Panama, Iraq, and Afghanistan.

We'll engrave the battalion graphic on one side of the mug. You have the option to add the American Flag, the same battalion graphic, or custom text to the second side for an additional $5.

We're working to get permission to engrave the Marine Corps logo and EGA on our mugs. As soon as the paperwork goes through, we'll offer those graphics as well.

If you have an order of multiple mugs or if you would like to request truly customized mugs, contact us directly for a more personal experience. 

Choice of finishes: mirror or brushed

(Brushed finish is recommended for best results with engraving.) 

Depending on the size of your order, engraving can take 3-5 business days plus shipping time. Custom orders of 10+ mugs maybe take 5-7 business days or longer plus ship time. 

Please wash your new mug with warm, soapy water before using.
