This website is dedicated to all who proudly served as a Beach Jumper...




The 2018 reunion originally planned for San Antonio, TX in mid November has been cancelled due to not being able to come to amicable terms with the hotel(s) that we considered for the reunion. They all wanted a fee to be paid if we cancelled after signing the contract, the amount

being more than our treasury balance. We are requesting suggestions / locations for the upcoming year 2019. Your replies should also contain a volunteer / boots on the ground.

1. The Admin Office has rec'd many applications during the past year, however many of the applicants have not sent in the required $25.00 initial process fee (which is applied to the first year or portion of first year dues) and therefore the application is sitting dormant. If you have applied and not heard anything back, this may be the reason. Applications will not be processed without the application fee, this includes new members age 80 or older. 


2. Regarding dues, a member is listed as not in good standing after a dues lapse of one year. Members not in good standing must pay two years dues to be reinstated to good standing status. Some members have sent in a new application thinking that this step can be by-passed. If you have a member number on file (since our inception) you cannot become a new member, you just need to pay up the two years dues. This rule was voted in by the membership in October 2009.

3.Regular members 80 years of age or older, are dues exempt members at their discretion. To those members who are 80+ and continue to pay annually, we appreciate your contribution.

First time applicants 80 years or older, must pay the initial $25.00 application fee.  ( email your DOB for this dues exemption to admin@beachjumpers.com )



a spectacular end to our 75th Anniversary Reunion, May 18-21, 2017

Beach Jumpers

were U.S. Navy tactical cover and deception units which were organized under Admiral H.K. Hewitt, then Commander of Amphibious Forces and all U.S. Naval Forces in Northwest African waters and the Western Mediterranean.

The concept for Beach Jumpers came about as a result of then Lieutenant Douglas Fairbanks Jr., the Hollywood actor turned naval officer during World War II and having been detached from "Blue Water" duty on the high seas and assigned to duty with British Admiral Lord Louis Mountbatten and the Combined Operations Commandos in England.
