Yearly Theme (2019): Accomplish the Mission!
Vision: Servant Leadership through Veterans Service
Mission Statement: To lend support and partner with Veterans and Veteran organizations through financial support and grants increasing community awareness, and empowering Veterans to conquer the challenges they face in an ever-changing world.
A Veterans organization that- isn't cut from the same clothe as most. We support our local communities while doing things the right right way and for the right reasons - supporting Veterans and their families.
If you are a Marine, Navy Fleet Marine Forces (FMF) Corpsman, or Navy FMF Chaplain; you deserve to be a part of an organization that understands you, will have your back and put you first, and does the same with every Veteran we are fortunate to forge a relationship with.
The detachment meets monthly in order to comply with the National Headquarters, Marine Corps League, requirements in order to adhere to our Charter obligations and to take care of business that furthers the mission of the detachment and the League in Ellis County. This also allows our 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 in order 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 committee must be made up of primarily Trustees. There are several committees that need volunteers. The location for these committee meetings is set by the Committee Chairman.
