Sergeant James Dougherty USMC Memorial Shoot

In partnership with the 1/5 Vietnam Veterans Association, the 6th Annual Sergeant Dougherty Memorial Shoot (formerly the Blue Diamond Clays) will be held on September 24, 2022. The tournament proceeds will benefit the Marine Corps Scholarship Foundation and the Sergeant Rodney M. Davis, USMC (Medal of Honor) Memorial Scholarship.

Co-Host for this event — 1/5 Vietnam Veterans Association

We are the combat veterans of the 1st Battalion of the 5th Marine Regiment, 1st Marine Division (1/5), who served during the Vietnam War. Our Mission is to support the scholarship needs of the children of U.S. Marines and Sailors. We also foster, encourage, and perpetuate the memory, spirit and comradeship in arms of the 1/5 Vietnam Veterans/1st Marine Division, and support the active duty men and women serving in “our” battalion and “our” regiment, and their families. The 1/5 Vietnam Veterans Association is a 501 (C)(19) non-profit corporation chartered in the state of North Carolina. All donations are tax-deductible up to the limits of the law. For any questions regarding the 1/5 Vietnam Veterans Association, or the Sergeant Dougherty Memorial shoot, please call Jim Latta at 610-909-6507.

*Our name has changed from Blue Diamond to Sergeant James Dougherty to honor this deceased American hero and former President of the 1/5 Vietnam Veterans Association.
