Incorporated by an act of Congress in 1937, the Marine Corps League

perpetuates the traditions and spirit of ALL Marines and Navy FMF

Corpsmen, who proudly wear or who have worn the eagle, globe and

anchor of the Corps. It takes great pride in crediting its founding in

1923 to World War I Hero, then Major General Commandant John A.

Lejeune. It takes equal pride in its Federal Charter, approved by An

Act of the Seventy-Fifth Congress of the United States of America and

signed and approved by President Franklin D. Roosevelt on August 4,

1937. Since its earliest days, the Marine Corps League has enjoyed the

support and encouragement of the Active Duty and Reserve establishments

of the U.S. Marine Corps. Today, the League boasts a membership of over

60,000 and is one of the few Veterans Organizations that experience increases in

its membership each year.
