Marine Corps League


                     _________Serving Denton County Marines, FMF Corpsmen, and their families__ ___


"The Marines Have Landed..."

The Marine Corps League was enacted by the Seventy-Fifth Congress of the United States of America at its first session on January 5, 1937. The Act was approved on August 4, 1937 by the Congress of the United States of America.


The purpose of the Marine Corps League shall be to preserve the traditions and to promote the interest of the United States Marine Corps; to band those who are now serving in the United States  Marine Corps and those who have been honorably discharged from the service together in fellowship that they may effectively promote the ideas of American freedom and democracy; to fit its members for the duties of the citizenship and to encourage them to serve as ably as citizens as they have served the Nation; to foster love for the principles which they have supported by blood and valor since the founding of the Republic; to maintain true allegiance to the American institutions; to create a bond of comradeship between those in the service and those who have returned to civil life; to aid voluntarily and to render assistance to all Marines and former Marines as well as to their widows and orphans; to perpetuate the history of the history of the United States Marine Corps by fitting acts to observe the anniversaries of historical occasions of particular interest to Marines.
