USMC Scout sniper association

USMC Scout Sniper Association (SSA) is the only non-profit membership organization for Marine Scout Snipers in the world. We exist to support the Scout Sniper community through programs that inspire brotherhood, encourage professionalism, and foster resiliency. Our community is comprised of those who have carried the long gun, those who have enabled our successes on the battlefield, and our families.


USMC Scout Sniper Association is a non-partisan, non-profit, tax-exempt charity under Section 501(c)3 of the Internal Revenue Code. Founded in 1998, we received our IRS tax exemption as a 501(c)19 Veterans’ Organization in 2004 and were re-designated a 501(c)3 Charity in February, 2022.
