'Real hero’: Military, veterans among thousands paying respects to Sen. John McCain in Arizona

By: The Associated Press

PHOENIX — Military service members and veterans were among thousands in Arizona to gather to pay their respects to Sen. John McCain, who died Saturday at age 81.
People stood in line for hours in the Phoenix heat, carrying umbrellas and sipping cold water, to watch the motorcade transporting McCain’s body and to file past his casket at the public viewing at the Arizona Capitol building during the state’s two days of official mourning Wednesday and Thursday.
The viewing of McCain’s closed, flag-draped casket came on what would have been the Republican senator’s 82nd birthday and followed an emotional private ceremony with McCain’s family and colleagues.

Old breed? New breed? There’s not a damn bit of difference so long as it’s the Marine breed.

Commandants Message
Marines and Associates,
  I t is that time of year again kids back in school, labor day weekend the beginning of the transition to cooler weather. We plan on keeping the bands outside as long as the weather holds out. There are still a few Sunday Fundays left for you to come down and enjoy. 

Marines the National MCL has changed the dues expiration date to August 31 for everybody. With that policy change they decided to not send out renewal notifications. Therefore unless you are a lifetime member your dues are now delinquent. You can come down to the club and pick up a renewal form from one of the staff. This policy was completely out of our control and we know it has been an inconvenience to all involved except for national.
