"Those of us who have had the privilege of serving in the Marine Corps value our experience as among the most precious of our lives. The fellowship of shared hardships and dangers in a worthy cause creates a close bond of comradeship. It is the basic reason for the cohesiveness of Marines and for the pride we have in our corps and our loyalty to each other." -Senator Paul H. Douglas (Illinois).

On November 10, 1775 the United States Marine Corps was founded. In June of 1923 the Marine Corps League was established. And on Frbruary 7, 1986 the Port Washington Detachment of the Marine Corps League received its charter.
We are an organization of active duty, reserve and former United States Marines and U.S. Navy Corpsmen who served in FMF units.

Our Mission; Members of the Marine Corps League join together in camaraderie and fellowship for the purpose of preserving the traditions and promoting the interests of the United States Marine Corps, banding together those who are now serving in the United States Marine Corps and those who have been honorably discharged from that service that they may effectively promote the ideals of American freedom and democracy, voluntarily aiding and rendering assistance to all Marines and former Marines and to their widows and orphans; and to perpetuate the history of the United States Marine Corps and by fitting acts to observe the anniversaries of historical occasions of particular interest to Marines.

We count among our members veterans of Iwo Jima, Peleliu, the Korean war, Vietnam war, the gulf war, Iraq and Afghanistan, as well as members who have never fired a shot in anger. We are officers and enlisted. We are grunts, air wingers, tankers, admin and supply types and every other MOS in the Corps. Our bond, that which joins us all regardless of our current stations in life is that We are all Marines!

We meet the 3rd Thursday of every month (except July and August) at the Elks Lodge, 901 Lakeville Rd. New Hyde Park, N.Y. at 2000 hrs. (8:00 PM in case you've forgotten how to tell military time).
If you want to rekindle that esprit de corps that only Marines can share, swap old sea stories, catch up with old friends or make some new friends, we invite you to come to our meetings and see who we are, and what we do.
You've already earned the title United States Marine so you can be one of us!

Attention On Deck!
 

Our next meeting will be on Thursday, March 13, 2014 at 2000.

Marines, the Elks Lodge in Port Washington has been sold. The P.W. Elks have merged with the New Hyde Park Elks. Therefore we will now be meeting at the New Hyde Park Elks Lodge. It is located at 901 Lakeville Rd. Our meetings will still be on the second Thursday of the month. Meetings will still be called to order at 2000 (8:00 PM)


 
The Marine's Prayer


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 uniform 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 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

 
The Marine's Hymn


From the halls of Montezuma, to the shores of Tripoli', we fight our countrys battles in the air, on land, and sea. First to fight for right and freedom and to keep our honor clean, We are proud to claim the title of -

United States Marines

Our flags unfurl'd to every breeze from dawn to setting sun; We have fought in every clime and place where we could take a gun. In the snow of far-off northern lands and in sunny tropic scenes, You will find us always on the job
The United States Marines

Here's health to you and to our Corps which we are proud to serve; In many a strife we've fought for life And never lost our nerve. If the Army and the Navy ever gaze on Heaven's scenes, they will find the streets are guarded by -
The United States Marines!

SEMPER FIDELIS!

Once a Marine, always a Marine!
Esprit De Corps
"For the honor of the fallen, for the glory of the dead", Edgar Guest wrote of Belleau Wood, "the living line of courage kept the faith and moved ahead." They are all gone now, those Marines who made a French farmer's little wheatfield into one of the most enduring of Marine Corps legends. Many of them did not survive the day, and eight long decades have claimed the rest. But their action has made them immortal. The Corps remembers them and honors what they did, and so they live forever. Dan Daly's shouted challenge takes on its true meaning -- if you hide in the trenches you may survive for now, but someday you will die and no one will care. If you charge the guns you may die in the next two minutes, but you will be one of the immortals. All Marines die, in the red flash of battle or the white cold of the nursing home. In the vigor of youth or the infirmity of age all will eventually die, but the Marine Corps lives on. Every Marine who ever lived is living still, in the Marines who claim the title today. It is that sense of belonging to something that will outlive your own mortality that gives people a light to live by and a flame to mark their passing. Marines call it esprit de corps!

February 7, 2012 marks the 26th Anniversary of the Port Washington Detachment Charter. Thanks to those Marines who back in 1986 got together and formed our detachment, we have had the opportunity to meet, get to know and bond with Marines. And as necessary, we render help and assistance to fellow Marines, at home and abroad. Keep that camaraderie and "Esprit de Corps" alive! Come to the meeting and be a part of your detachment!
We joined the League to maintain our association and camaraderie with Marines! We include among our members, Marine Corps veterans who have fought and thankfully survived every conflict the United States has faced from World War II through today, along with other Marines who never heard a shot fired in anger. Our one common thread; we are all Marines!
It is the participation, support, interest and involvement of all of our members which ultimately makes our detachment successful!
Each and every Marine is vital to continuing our mission of service and support of the Corps. So if you havenít been to a meeting in a while, plan on attending one soon! Come by and support your detachment! Say hello to old friends and perhaps meet some new friends you never even knew you had!

Our next meeting is on Thursday March 13, 2014 at 2000.
