"ONCE A MARINE,.....

 

ALWAYS A MARINE!"

 

 

Join us the Marine Corps League

 

We count among our members officers and enlisted.  We have pounded the ground, flown in the air, saved lives as corpsmen. 
 

We've stormed the beaches and served at sea.  We've worked in personnel and administration, and along the way, through our MOS assignments, we have also found ourselves in communication, logistics, utilities and intelligence. 

 

We've served our nation not only at home but in conflicts in the Pacific, Korea, Vietnam, the Gulf, Iraq, Afghanistan and Somalia.  Nevertheless, our common bond, that which unites us all, regardless of our current stations in life, is that We Are All Marines.

 

If you want to rekindle that esprit de corps that only Marines can share, swap old sea stories, catch up with old friends or make some new friends, we invite you to come to our meetings and see who we are and what we do.

 

You've already earned the title United States Marine so we'd like to welcome you aboard!

 

We meet the last Saturday of

 

every month at 0900 hours,

 

except in December.
