About the Elkhart Area Marines- Marine Corps League #1397
Charter Founded in April 2012
The Elkhart Detachment #1397 is the local unit of the Marine Corps League. The Purpose of our League is to preserve the traditions and promote the interests of the United States Marine Corps, to care for fellow Marines and FMF Corpsman and their Families in time of need and to serve our community by patriotic service.
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.
Who May Join
Membership is open to honorably discharged and currently serving Marines and FMF Corpsman.
We hold our meeting the second Monday of every month at the DAV in Elkhart at 6:30 pm.
