Mobile Vet Center - SIU Veterans' Appreciation Tailgate

​Members find the Marine Corps League’s National Convention an opportunity to be a part of the decision making process, attend the several training classes offered at Convention, learn more about the operation and functions of the League as well as ideal vacation venues for themselves and family members. Held in a different city each year, many families attend year after year and particularly enjoy the many planned activities and tours related to these get-togethers. 

Members find the camaraderie offers them the chance to meet new people and renew old friendships. Attendance at National Conventions has grown to an average of between 800 and 1500 members and their families.

The Marine Corps League is a charter member of The Military Coalition, The National Marine Corps Council, AdHoc Committee, Navy and Marine Corps Council, the National Veterans Day Committee, and is represented on countless committees and programs serving the military and veteran community.

​League members participate in patriotic functions such as the National Memorial Day Parade and the National 4th of July Parade in Washington as well as countless statewide and community parades around the country. We provide representation to the U.S. Congress in legislative matters affecting the United States Marine Corps, national security and veteran’s benefits through our National Legislative Committee. Most importantly, Marine Corps League Detachments are actively involved in Community based programs throughout the country.
