Members of the Marine Corps League join together in camaraderie and fellowship for the purpose of preserving the traditions and promoting the interests of the United States Marine Corps, banding together those who are now serving in the United States Marine Corps and those who have been honorably discharged from that service that they may effectively promote the ideals of American freedom and democracy, voluntarily aiding and rendering assistance to all Marines, FMF Corpsmen and former Marines and FMF Corpsmen and to their widows and orphans; and to perpetuate the history of the United States Marine Corps and by fitting acts to observe the anniversaries of historical occasions of particular interest to Marines.
The Marine Corps League, enacted by an act of Congress in 1937, perpetuates the traditions and spirit of ALL Marines, Navy FMF Corpsmen and U.S. Navy Chaplains, who proudly wear or who have worn the eagle, globe and anchor of the Corps. The Seacoast Detachment of the Marine Corps League was initially founded at the Portsmouth Naval Shipyard in 1948 as the Ranger Detachment, named after the first USS RANGER built at Portsmouth in 1777 and initially skippered by John Paul Jones.
In 2006 the Detachment moved to a NH location and was re-designated as the Seacoast Detachment. It consists of Marines and FMF Sailors from the NH Seacoast and York County, ME. In addition to monthly meetings, we get together for Wednesday morning casual breakfasts; a summer picnic; firing details for Memorial Day, Veterans Day and funerals of Navy and Marine Corps veterans; sponsor scholarships; provide veterans outreach and of course celebrate the Marine Corps Birthday each November.
