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. We band together those who are now serving in the United States Marine Corps with those who have been honorably discharged from that service so that they may effectively promote the ideals of American freedom and democracy. Our mission is to voluntarily aid and render assistance to all Marines, FMF Chaplains, FMF Corpsmen and former Marines, FMF Chaplains and FMF Corpsmen and to their widows and orphans; as well as to perpetuate the history of the United States Marine Corps by finding acts to observe the anniversaries of historical occasions of particular interest to Marines.
