In 1937 by Act of Congress, signed by the President of the United States, on August 4th,  the Marine Corps League became a nationally recognized veterans’ organization.  As a U.S. Marine you can become a member of that organization, and have the right to enjoy the association and mutual aid of your former comrades in arms, in our League that is the natural outgrowth of a proud fighting fraternity. In the years to come, let us trust that our zeal in the work of the League for the accomplishment of its purposes, and your personal conduct in our community, will increase the luster of an already great organization.

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. This is accomplished by banding together those who are now serving in the United States Marine Corps and those who have been honorably discharged from that service; voluntarily aiding and rendering assistance to all Marines and former Marines and to their widows and orphans, and by perpetuating the history of the United States Marine Corps through fitting acts to observe the anniversaries of historical occasions of particular interest to Marines
