Join MCARA or Renew Membership

MCARA welcomes all Marines, their family members, and associates who have an interest in USMC aviation reconnaissance and airborne electronic warfare squadrons, detachments, and supporting units. Membership is open to all active duty, former active duty, and retired Marines (including family members); attached medical specialists; contracted civilians (tech reps); and other vested personnel who are serving, have served, or have a motivated interest in any of those organizations.

It is our purpose to foster, promote, and perpetuate the feeling of camaraderie and esprit de corps among our members, as well as endeavor to preserve the past and promote the future of aviation reconnaissance and electronic warfare.

To accomplish these lofty goals, we encourage and maintain an active communication exchange among our members through our reunions conducted at various locations around the country; our own MCARA website at; our periodic newsletter, the Recon Log Book; and the MCARA messaging group within Yahoo.

Join today and be part of the action.
