Whether you're a Marine, veteran Marine, FMF Corpsman, an FMF Chaplain, or just a civilian who wants to make a difference in your local area, the Marine Corps League is the place for YOU. The Detachments of the Department of West Virginia help a number of veterans organizations as well as worthwhile charities.
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 the Marine Corps that they may effectively promote the ideals of American freedom and democracy. We voluntarily aid and render assistance to all Marines and veteran Marines and their widows and orphans, and perpetuate the history of the United States Marine Corps. By fitting acts, we observe the anniversaries of historical occasions of particular interest to Marines.
