The Coronavirus has caused many things to change in our lives!
It is imperative that members of our community work together to ensure we can stop the spread of this deadly disease. By order of the Board of Trustees:
ALL detachment functions through May 15, 2020 are hereby cancelled until further notice. As the situation changes this decision will be revisited and adjusted.
Please take care of yourself and your family!

DETACHMENT GUIDING PRINCIPLES
We are a veterans organization that isn't cut from the same clothe as most. We support our local communities while doing things the 'right way', for the 'right reasons', while supporting Veterans and their families.
If you are an honorably discharged Marine, Navy Fleet Marine Forces (FMF) Chaplain or Corpsman; you deserve to be a part of an organization that understands you, will have your back and puts you first. And, does the same with every Veteran we are fortunate to forge a relationship with.
FUNDING ASSISTANCE IN TRYING HOURS
Our Project F.A.I.T.H. program is our newest addition of programs designed to aid and assist Veterans in and around our County community. Project F.A.I.T.H. is a program you can either get support from or support the program's efforts to help others in their time of need.
Check out the Project F.A.I.T.H. web page.
why the marine corps league?
Marines are the only branch of service that calls you the same thing when you are out of the service as when you were in, a Marine. No matter where you served, and for how long, Marines stepped on the same yellow footprints and will be there when a fellow brother or sister is in need. Don't miss out on the camaraderie that exists in and around Ellis County with Marines in the Marine Corps League!
wHAT WE DO FOR YOU
