About Us

Mission Statement

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, FMF Corpsmen, and former Marines and FMF Corpsmen 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.

History

The Marine Corps League perpetuates the traditions and spirit of All Marines and Navy FMF Corpsmen,  who proudly where or who have worn the eagle, globe and anchor of the Corps. It takes great pride in its founding in 1923 to World War I hero, then Major General Commandant John A. Lejeune. It takes equal pride in its Federal Charter, approved by an Act of the Seventy-fifth Congress of the United States of America and signed and approved by President Franklin D. Roosevelt on August 4, 1937.


The League is the only Federally Chartered Marine Corps related veterans' organization in the country. Since the earliest days, the Marine Corps League has enjoyed the support and encouragement of the active duty and Reserve establishments of The U. S. Marine Corps. Today, the League boasts a membership of more than 76,000 men and women, officer and enlisted, active duty, Reserve Marines, honorably discharged Marine veterans and qualified Navy FMF Corpsmen and is one of the few Veterans Organizations that experiences increases in its membership each year.
