The newest addition to the Detachment's website is our Messaging Chatbot, which is provided through the Snatchbot platform. The messaging icon in the bottom right corner of every screen looks like this: 

Chatbots have been around for a while, but are just now starting to get traction with businesses and nonprofit organizations who are realizing the added benefits these messaging chatbots provide, especially in the area of customer service.

MarineBot is the name of our Chatbot. MarineBot is programmed to help answer questions, provide direction to relevant content and help provide a 24/7 'customer support' function. Though MarineBot is programmed with basic functions that he walks each user through, he also is programmed with certain basic questions/answers such as: Who made you, How old are you, What is your gender, Tell me a joke, What is the meaning of life, etc. with many more to come.

Try it out and let us know if you have any feedback concerning MarineBot!

The 2018 Marine Corps Birthday Ball hosted by the Ellis County Detachment 1452 was held on Saturday, 10 November, 2018 at the Texas Motorplex in Ennis, Texas. This year's Second Annual event was a huge success with nearly 170 guests in attendance as we celebrated this 243rd Birthday of the United States Marine Corps here in our hometown communities within Ellis County. Planning for the 2019 Marine Corps Ball is soon to be underway and we hope that you will join us as this event continues to grow.

MEEtings of the detachment

The detachment meets monthly in order to comply with federal regulations concerning nonprofit corporations, to take care of business that furthers the mission of the detachment and the League in the County, as well as for the members to be able to spend time together in camaraderie and fellowship.

The monthly membership meeting is held the last Thursday of every month at 1930 (7:30 pm) at the Refiners Fire Ministries International (RFMI) Church in Ennis, Texas. All potential members are encouraged to attend so as to receive more information and join the detachment. 

A monthly Officer's meeting is held the third Monday of every month at 1900 (7:00 pm) at the RFMI Church in Ennis, Texas. This meeting is a requirement for Officers; however, all members are welcome at any meeting of the detachment.

The address for the RFMI Church for all of the above meetings is 1611 W. Ennis Avenue Ennis, Texas 75119.

The Detachment's primary business (on the ground level) is done by committee. There are various committee's established by the Board of Trustees. Any Board of Trustees committee must be made up of primarily Trustees. There are several other committees that need volunteers. The location for these committee meetings is set by the Chairman.

Eagle scouts of america

The Marine Corps League supports the Boy Scouts of America as they promote traditional family values to America’s youth. The Eagle Scout Award Program is in place to recognize the achievements of our youth in attaining Scouting's highest award.

Every Scout who reaches the rank of Eagle Scout is presented a citizenship award. 
The Award  is usually held in conjunction with his local troop's Court of Honor ceremony. Upon request, a Marine from the local Detachment will attend your next Eagle Scout Court of Honor and present a Good Citizenship Award Certificate from the Marine Corps League to your new Eagle Scout. To initiate recognition by the Detachment, the supporting Boy Scout Troop should submit a request to the Detachment by downloading and completing the application form.  

Once the form is completed, email it to the Detachment at elliscountymarines@gmail.com.

what's happening?



There are many resources out there for veterans of all eras. This is great for the fact that in times of need all a veteran has to do is reach out to get in touch with someone who can help. The problem comes when there are too many resources to be able to sift through and process, which causes some veterans to not reach out at all. Use this handy reference page of compiled resources. We did the work for you, so go ahead, reach out...
