Commandants Message

Marines and Associates,

2018 was a fantastic year for the Marine Corps League. We had a record breaking year at the Leatherneck Lounge, that was driven by our action packed Event Calendar. A big thank you to Gina Laconte for her hard work bringing us such great talent. We had another successful Marine Corps League Birthday Ball, Summer Bash, Toys for Tots Program and much, much more that I am probably forgetting. 

We move into 2019 with confidence that it will be even a better year. I would like to thank Jack Schuster and all the past Commandants, Marines and Associate members for all the hard work they put into the Marine Corps League to bring it to where it is today.

Thank you to all our officers who work with me to better myself and the Marine Corps League. Looking forward to meeting and working with all of you.

God Bless
Semper Fidelis 
Your Commandant

They told (us) to open up the Embassy, or "we'll blow you away." And then they looked up and saw the Marines on the roof with these really big guns, and they said in Somali, "Igaralli ahow," which means "Excuse me, I didn't mean it, my mistake".
