Members of the Marine Corps League join together in camaraderie and fellowship  for the purpose of preserving and promoting the interest of the United States Marine Corps, banding together those who are now serving in the United States Marine Corps and those who have been honorably discharged from that service that they may effectively promote the ideals of American freedom, and democracy, voluntarily aiding and rendering assistance to all Marines and former Marines and to their widows and orphans; and to perpetuate the history of the United States Marine Corps and by fitting acts to observe the anniversaries of historical occasions of particular interest to Marines.

​Programs your Detachment and your Marine Corps League support would include:

It was an honor and privilage to spend some time with the current Commanding General of the 1st Marine Division, Major General Robert F. Castellvi.

Hello Marines, “somethings in life will never change.” After WW 1 Marines returning home from War faced the challenges of re-entering Civilian Life.  They united as they did in War and formed the beginning of an Organization called the Marine Corps League.  Through this Organization they were successful with navigating the challenges of everyday Life to a High Level of Satisfaction.  As Marines we will always Honor Our Motto “Semper Fidelis” Always Faithful to God, Country, and Corps. 

If you are an Active or Honorably Discharged Marine or FMF Corpsman, Retired or Reservist consider joining us.  We continue to share the success of the Marine Corps through a multitude of Missions supporting all Marine Families and Veteran Community Events.  For decades, the Marine Corps League remains one of the finest Volunteer Organization afloat. Enjoy our Website and come and visit us at our Monthly Meeting.

“Once a Marine Always a Marine”.
