For Regular Membership into the League, If you are a Marine, male or female, active duty, retired, serving with the Reserves or no longer actively serving, and served a minimum of 90 days and were discharged or separated under honorable conditions, you could be one of us! We are looking for a "few good men and women" to join us and uphold the proud traditions of the United States Marine Corps!

For those individuals not qualified for Regular Membership in the Marine Corps League, who support the principles and purposes of the Marine Corps League, may join for Associate Membership in the Marine Corps League. If the applicant for Associate Membership has served with another service branch, he/she shall have served under honorable conditions. Proof of such service may be required. An Associate Member in the Detachment may hold staff officer or appointed positions, and may vote on the internal affairs of the Detachment or on matters not affecting Marine Corps League policy.

Now that you have become a member of the League, we want to know what you enjoy doing! Perhaps you have a skill or expertise that one of our many programs can use! Travel with us! Attend Quarterly Meetings that are held in different locations throughout the State; meet other League members from the 100 different counties within our State and create new friendships. Enjoy meeting us at our monthly “Esprit de Corps” nights for food, fun and camaraderie at one of our area restaurants. Look forward to our annual Marine Corps Birthday Ball and MUCH, MUCH MORE!
