We currently have 13 chartered Marine Corps LeagueDetachmentslocated
throughout the State of Colorado. Our earliest detachments were chartered as
early as 1970 and most continue strong today. Several have their own
Auxiliary Units, which also gives distaff members of your family a wonderful
opportunity to meet new friends and take part in wonderful programs.
Some people spend an entire lifetime wondering if they made a difference
in the world. But, the Marines don't have that problem. Ronald Reagan, President of the

Why Join the Marine Corps League?
When you join and/or invite
someone you know to join the Marine Corps League, you do more than
increase our ability to help America's Veterans and their families; you
could be helping that new member live a longer, more fulfilling life.
In recent years, U.S. populations have become more solitary, and more than
a quarter of U.S. households are made up of people living by themselves.
Sadly research has found that 25 percent of Americans said they had no one
to talk to about important matters and social isolation may increase a
persons risk of early death.
The good news is that every Marine Corps League member, has the
opportunity to help ebb the loneliness epidemic! Most of our members take
time to visit those veterans at VA Hospitals and Veterans homes. Our
Veterans will feel loved and appreciated when our members visit them and
feel useful and connected.
Your involvement is key to the success of each one of our Detachments,
Auxiliary Units and our Organization. It takes each and every one of us
pulling together to get the important work done of serving our Veterans
and their families, our communities, and our country.
many of you are aware, there has been some problems with several things back
at MCL National. Dealing with membership, transmittals, and membership cards
for new members and life members, also problems with the website and IT
stuff.I first and foremost want to
say that we (mean several) of the BOT are very much aware of the situations
and are trying to handle these problems for you in the best interest of the
League and the Membership. Also I would to remind everyone that there is a
Chain Of Leadership in place for the League, and I would asked you to
remember that and follow it, please. Detachment members go to your
Detachment Officers and Commandants, Detachment Commandants go to the
Department Commandants, Department Commandants go to the Division Vice
Commandant, then Division Vice’s take it to National.
