The Marine Corps League perpetuates the traditions and spirits of all Marines who proudly wear or have worn the eagle, globe, and anchor of the Corps, as well as Navy FMF Corpsmen and Chaplains.
The Marine Corps League takes great pride in crediting its founding in 1923 to World War I hero, then Major General Commandant John A. Lejeune. We are equally proud in our Federal Charter, approved by An Act of the Seventy-Fifth Congress of the United States of America and signed and approved by President Franklin D. Roosevelt on August 4, 1937. The League is the only Federally Chartered Marine Corps related veterans organization in the country.
Since its earliest days, the Marine Corps League has enjoyed the support and encouragement of the active duty and Reserve establishments of the U. S. Marine Corps. Today, the League boasts a membership of more than 70,000 men and women, officer and enlisted, active duty, Reserve Marines, honorably discharged Marine Veterans and qualified Navy FMF Corpsmen and Chaplains.
