active duty Marines and FMF Navy Corpsmen with over 90 days of service.

do not otherwise qualify may join as Associate Members.Are
you a Marine Corps League Member?
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.
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.
