  Where & when we meet


Our Mission

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, 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.  

Membership Notes:
Membership is for Marines with Honorable present or past Active or Reserve Duty.  We also welcome U.S. Navy Corpsmen who have had active service with Marine FMF units.

Associate Membership is available to those with service in other U.S. Armed Forces, or motivated civilians eager to help the cause.

See the bottonm of this Page for "Where and When We Meet".
