Detachment #1417

(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.

 "A Marine is a Marine. There's no such thing as a former Marine. You're a Marine, just in a   different uniform and you're in a different   phase of your life. But you'll always be a    Marine because you went to Parris Island, San Diego or the hills of Quantico. There's no such thing as a former Marine." 

General James F. Amos, (ret.)
35th Commandant of the Marine Corps
