3rd Battalion 6th Marines is an infantry battalion in the United States Marine Corps based out of Camp Lejeune, North Carolina. Also known as "Teufelhunden", it consists of approximately 1000 Marines and Sailors. They fall under the 6th Marine Regiment and the 2nd Marine Division.
The Sixth Marines was first organized in Quantico, Virginia on 11 July 1917. In June 1918, the Regiment, together with the Fifth Marines and Sixth Machinegun Battalion launched the famous attack against the German Forces entrenched in Belleau Wood. In recognition of the "Brilliant courage, vigor, spirit, and tenacity of the Marines," the French Government awarded them a citation of the Croix de Guerre with Palms. Late, for heroic action in the Soisson and Champagne Sectors, the Marines were twice cited for their valor in battle. As a result of these actions, the Sixth Marine Regiment was awarded the Fourragere. With the signing of the armistice ending World War I in November 1918, the Sixth Marines continued to serve as part of the Occupational Forces in Germany.
Since 1995 3rd Battalion, 6th Marines has routinely deployed to the Mediterranean as a part of Landing Force 6th Fleet. The Regiment continues to support the defense of the Nation by maintaining forces in readiness in support of contingency operations and unit deployments to the Mediterranean, Pacific Rim and around the globe.

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.
