No... and there never will be due to the fact that it can conflict with the real life 15th MEU. we choose to abstain from creating so we do not give the misconception that we are attempting to impersonate the real life 15th MEU

Roger that, I can see it getting asked a lot.. Only thing I could think of is to make a private group instead of a page, then it wouldn't be searchable, could only join via a link. But I am sure that's been brought up more times than some people can count. lol

Well, aside from the fact that we don't want to pretend as if we're the REAL 15th MEU (I, personally, don't buy that as a real legitimate argument seeing as how we're the first result when you Google the 15th MEU - but that's my opinion), a Facebook page would only survive for as long as people stay active on it. I wouldn't want to be in charge of updating it; I've got enough unit-related administrative work to do. Most people are probably in the same boat as me as far as that goes. We have the forums, which everyone is already active on. I don't see the need to go beyond that.

We are NOT going to make pages in facebook, twitter, myspace, linkedin and so on page ever. EVER. Whether people view as valid or not, it's a matter of ethics, we're not real marines, we want to avoid any bullshit that may accompany people thinking we are posers, fakes or whatever else.
