    Associate membership

    Good evening Marines,

    I am curious about becoming an associate member of the Marine Corps League. Due to a medical condition, I cannot enlist in the Corps, but I still love the Marines and want to get involved somehow. Getting involved in the Marine Corps League seems like a good way to do that. Does this sound like a good idea? How welcome would a non-Marine be at meetings?

    Thanks in advance for your answers, and thank you all for your service!

    At my or our meeting(s) you would feel a bit odd. You would/will probably fit in over time, but the MCL and its detachments are comprised of a bunch of salty Marine Veterans so expect some time before you understand the workings of the Marines, the Corps, and all that in-between. I'm not trying to discourage you, just trying to be honest. Good for you for wanting to make a difference and by all means call your local Detachment and check with them.

    Good luck.

    I agree with what thewookie has told you.
    Go to mcleague.org and find a Detachment in your area for more info.

    Some detachment that's hurting for numbers could be taking associates.

    Thank you all for the replies, Marines! I will get in contact with the Wheaton, IL, detachment and see what they have to say.
