Beware of any texts or emails seeking your support in purchasing gift cards. 


If you receive a text from 903-933-0699 (or other numbers with a 903 area code), please don’t respond and refrain from providing any contact information. 

Moments ago, our members received a series of text messages from a person who impersonated Detachment leadership soliciting support by requesting the purchase of hundreds of dollars in the form of Visa Gift Cards.  


After the gift cards are purchased, the scammer will ask for the card information to gain access to the funds. 


The scammer is also seeking phone numbers of other Detachment members. 


If you receive any of these requests, please take a screen shot of the text messages and share with Detachment leaders so we can provide the latest updates for all members.  


By way of reminder, Detachment leadership will never solicit other members to purchase gift cards. 


Thank you and Semper Fidelis!

Join 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 served our nation not only at home but in conflicts in the Pacific, Korea, Vietnam, the Persian 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!
