We are a Non-Profit Organization oriented to promote contact between Brazilian Marines veterans, military in general and keep in touch with the Brazilian Marine Corps.


5º Annual Reunion of AVCFN-USA

On 01/07/23 we held our 5th annual meeting in Tampa FL at the MOTTA veteran's home attended by 12 Marine Corps veterans from the states of Florida, Texas, Virginia, Massachusetts, New Jersey, and Georgia.

We would like to thank MOTTA and his wife, D.LÚCIA, and their family for the fantastic welcome they have always provided us.

The tireless Motta and Lucia with infinite patience to put up with this bunch of lunatics (lol). We thank our families for their support and encouragement. To the friends present, this is us Marines. A little crazy, but angry and committed to our brothers, our values, our homeland, and the CFN. We appreciate your presence. We had a good Brazilian BBQ and spent the day at the shooting range. A perfect day for a Marine! Our dates have NEVER gone wrong or been BORING! On the contrary. We had a lot of fun! We strengthen bonds of friendship and our brotherhood INCREASES! ​




Brazilian Marines Veterans Association First Reunion

On September, 7th. we had the first AVCFN-USA reunion. The meeting happened in Dartmouth - MA and counted 13 veteran marines. We reunited veteran marines of different times and places that share our common values and enjoyed ourselves in a nice barbecue. We had veterans coming from Florida, Massachusetts, Illinois, and New Hampshire, a testimony of the level of commitment and friendship of the Brazilian Marine Corps Veterans who live in the USA.  We did also talk about the association, future activities, and how to help our communities. It has been a day of joy and fun! A special note of appreciation to Leslie for having such noisy crowd in her backyard (we did pay with some push-ups!).


Reinforcing our Commitment with the CFN

The AVCFN participates on military exercises as observers, sharing experiences and serving as moral reserve for the young Marines



Honoring our fellow American soldiers
