    The Department of Delaware of the Marine Corps League, a band of brothers consisting of Marines and FMF
    Corpsmen as regular members and other persons interested in the traditions and ideals of the Marine Corps
    and Marine Corps League as associate members.

    The Delaware Department is organized into a Department Staff and 5 Detachments located throughout the

    traditions and promoting the interests of our beloved United States Marine Corps.

    The Department of Delaware, and its Detachments, voluntarily aid and render assistance to all Marines,
    Veteran Marines, FMF Corpsmen,and to their widows and orphans. In addition, the Department takes pride in
    supporting causes such as the Injured Marine Semper Fi Fund, the Marine Corps War Memorial Foundation
    Fund and other worthy causes with monetary contributions. In so doing the entire Department perpetuates
    the history of the United States Marine Corps through fitting acts by observing the anniversaries of historical
    occasions of particular interest to all Marines, FMF Corpsmen and other associated members.

    History of the Marine Corps League

    The Marine Corps League was founded by General John A. Lejeune in 1923, receiving its national Charter by an Act of Congress on August 4, 1937. We are classified as a veterans/military service organization whose purpose is to promote the interests and preserve the traditions of the U. S. Marine Corps; assist fellow Marines and FMF Navy Corpsmen, their widows and orphans and participate in various patriotic ceremonies. The league is comprised of honorably discharged as well as reserve and active duty Marines and FMF Navy Corpsmen with over 90 days of service. Those individuals that want to participate with the Marine Corps League but do not otherwise qualify may join as Associate Members.
     


     



    "The United States Marine Corps, with its fiercely proud tradition of excellence in combat, its hallowed rituals, and its unbending code of honor, is part of the fabric of American myth." Thomas E. Ricks; Making the Corps, 1997

    We are about Honor, Courage and Commitment. When duty calls, Marines are and have always been the first to fight and we continue to answer the call today. We are Marines helping Marines, Marines helping our communities and Marines helping our Nation.

    WE ARE THE MARINE CORPS LEAGUE

    Once a Marine - Always a Marine.

    Semper Fidelis!
