About Us

Members of the Marine Corps League join together in camaraderie and fellowship for the purpose of preserving the traditions and promoting the interests of the United States Marine Corps.marine corps league 500

We band together those Marines and Navy Corpsmen who are now serving in and with the United States Marine Corps and those who have been honorably discharged 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.

The MCL perpetuates the history of the United States Marine Corps by fitting acts to observe the anniversaries of historical occasions of particular interest to Marines.

The Detachment is involved in several activities supporting the Marine Corps, local communities, and the mission of the Marine Corps League.
