MARINE CORPS VETERANS
Marine Corps Veterans Long Island
Mercury Detachment, Port Jefferson Station, New York
The Marine Corps Veterans was incorporated in April 2012. We are a group of active duty, reserve and former United States Marines (and U.S. Navy Hospital Corpsmen who served in Marine Corps FMF Units). We also have associate members who, while not former Marines, also make up a vital part of our member body. Most but not all, of our members are from central and northern Suffolk County area. We meet the first Tuesday of the month throughout the year at 2000 hrs (8:00 PM) for those of you who forgot how to tell Military time, at the American Legion Post # 432, on Hallock Ave, Route 25A, Port Jefferson Station, N.Y. 11776, If you're a former Marine, looking to connect with other Marines to swap sea stories, share memories, perhaps find an old friend or make some new friends, or if you want to rekindle that special "Esprit de Corps" that only Marines can share, we invite you to join us !!! Our annual dues are $24.00
Our current membership stands at 56, we are just getting started and are always striving to increase our membership. At our last meeting we had 35 members in attendance, come on back to the detachment if you have been away for awhile, we are moving forward and always looking for new ideas and suggestions to keep the detachment moving.
Lets all "Recruit New Members ," We have applications available at the monthly meeting for those that need them.

Why We Are Proud To Be MARINES
Almighty Father, whose command is over all and whose love never fails, make me aware of Thy presence and obedient to Thy will. Keep me true to my best self, guarding me against dishonesty in purpose and deed and helping me to live so that I can face my fellow Marines, my loved ones, and Thee without shame or fear. Protect my family. Give me the will to do the work of a Marine and to accept my share of responsibilities with vigor and enthusiasm. Grant me the courage to be proficient in my daily performance. Keep me loyal and faithful to my superiors and to the duties my Country and the Marine Corps have entrusted to me. Help me to wear my uniforms with dignity, and let it remind me daily of the traditions which I must uphold. If I am inclined to doubt, steady my faith; if I am tempted, make me strong to resist; if I should miss the mark, give me the courage to try again. Guide me with the light of truth and grant me wisdom by which I may understand the answer to my prayer. Amen
