So I wanna join the Marine Corps League, unfortunately there is not a local Detachment here in my area. Plus to be honest I, havn't the slightest clue on how to get one going in my town. There are a few in the General Area, but they are all at least Hour and Half, to Two Hours away. I was thinking about joining as Member At Large, instead of signing up for one Detachment due to my location. I figured this way I could bounce around to different ones. My questions on this how do the Detachements look at a Member at Large comming to there Detachement, while not actually being a member of that Detachment. Also any info on the League in General is helpful. Semper Fi:D

I'm a Marine Corps League Life Member, it is what you want out of it. From the League you get the Semper Fi mag, also can get the Leatherneck and the other mags. If your in a Detachment you can be on the Honor Guard, Color Guard and also they all have or some that are close combine a Marine Corps Birthday. Some Detachments do adopt a Squad and send packages to deployed Marines, so you can help with that. also it is just a Group that was started by General Lejuene back in the 30s. It is not a Veterans Group because Active Duty, Reserves, Retired and Veteran Marine s can all join it. It is for all Marines of all Eras to get together and hang out. Plus others can join as associates.

echo...I'm there with you on not being close enough to a detachment from best I can tell. I really would consider starting a detachment but haven't had the time to check out the requirements for such an act. The main page is rather sparse on information. Even doing an at large membership would require an hour drive (minimum). Also considered joining a legion post, but to many bums at the one I visited.

Thanks guys, well I guess Im going to sign up as a Member at Large. What about the uniforms is that something that they give you. Or is it something you have to buy. I kinda like the red jacket uniform I think it looks pretty slick. Semper Fi.:D

Navy Corpsman that have trained with Marine FMF units in excess of 90 days and earned the MC Device (claps) worn on the Service Ribbon and those who earn the Warfare Device authorized for FMF Corpsmen shall also be eligible for regular membership.

I would hold off on the uniform until you become a member. Your Detachment will fill you in on all that you need.

I just joined the Marine Corps League last month. My Detachment is having a cake cutting ceremony for the Marine Corps Birthday tonight. I have not been there long enough to get my MCL uniform but I still have my dress blues and they sre a little snug but they still fit. What is the proper etiquette for dressing for this type of ceremony? I am a little rusty on the etiquette part, I have been out of the Corps for 30 years. Thanks for any help.

I think you need 20 Jarines to charter a new club, that is what we had to do. ;)

The league I belong to will buy all new members a uniform so that they can wear it for color guard events or funeral details. They have bought each member a MCL polo shirt with our league info on it, and also a really nice windbreaker jacket with our det info on it. As far as the more fancy dress uniforms, those we have to buy ourselves. And of course anyone who helps out with our annual events gets a free t-shirt that we normally sell for the event.

The Basic Cover is the single most important part of the uniform, without which, no other part is authorized to be worn. To avoid feeling out of place you may want to check with your Detachmment Commandant.

Respect works in both directions. If you want respect, practice it. These younger Marines need advice, not arrogance. A little advice from an old Marine.

Yes, I looked it up it is 20 but you may get permission to start if you have 15 and can get up to 20 in a reasonable time. I just ran into my wife's cousin who is also a Marine and he's interested too. We'll probably wait til after the holidays to start really getting down to business.

Sorry, just latched onto this. Go online to MARINE CORPS LEAGUE NATIONAL HEADQUARTERS. On the left side their is a list of contents. Click on How To Form A Detachment. You should know, or become familiar with League policies and proceedures.
It's best to register and you'll be able to enter the Semper Fi Store and order things. Manuals and forms are free though some must be bought. You'll need 15 Marines/FMF Corpsman to start.

Good Luck

Brian, echo3oscar1833 is no longer a member of Leatherneck, and besides, his original post is from over a year and a half ago.
