Marine Corps League Programs
The Marine Corps League has many interests, and supports many programs. The following links may or may not be directly related to the Marine Corps or the Marine Corps League, but they have earned a place of honor on our website.
The American Village in Montevallo has launched the Register of Honorthat will pay tribute to Veterans and active members of the U.S. Armed Forces. The Register of Honor is an interactive website that allows visitors to post photographs, biographies and stories about those who have honorably served and are serving now in uniform.
This site is dedicated to finding the Marines you served with as well as providing a means of connecting with other Marines
The League developed and administers a program that provides a physical fitness regimen that promotes a healthy, drug free life style for elementary and high school students.
Members of the Marine Corps League fund scholarships through donations from individual members and subordinate units of the Marine Corps League and Auxiliary. Children and former Marines are eligible for academic scholarships for attendance at accredited colleges and universities.
The National Headquarters retains a full-time staff member who assists veterans in adjudicating claims against the government as a result of active duty service. Claims are processed through the Department of Veterans Affairs or other appropriate agencies of the federal government.
Marine Corps League Detachments in nearly every community take part annually in the United States Marine Corps Reserve Toys-For-Tots campaign to raise funds and collect and distribute toys to needy children. In communities where there is an existing Marine Corps Reserve Unit, the League works hand in hand supporting their campaign. In other communities, the Marine Corps League takes the lead, ensuring a successful campaign.
Members find the State and National Conventions of the League ideal vacation venues for themselves and family members. Held in a different city each year, many families attend year after year and particularly enjoy the many planned activities and tours related to these get-togethers.
