WELCOME

Welcome to the home of United States Marine Corps League, Detachment #1296. We are Marines, Corpsman, and Associates from the "East Valley" of the Phoenix Metro area. Some of our members even come from as far away as the Northern states.

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.

Today, the League boasts a membership of about 70,000 men and women, officer and enlisted, active duty, Reserve Marines, honorably discharged Marine Veterans and qualified Navy FMF Corpsmen and is one of the few Veterans Organizations that experiences increases in its membership each year.

If you have any questions, you may reach us by viewing our Contact Us page."
   

MESSAGE FROM THE COMMANDANT - Detachment #1296
We invite all Marines in the area to join us at our monthly meetings, both for camaraderie and for the benefit of our community and our veterans. Please take time to check out some of our recent activities.
  • Our Marine Corps Birthday Ball continues to sell out. We have had wonderful guest speakers from around the country to address our attendees.  The next Ball will be held on November 12, 2016 at the Oakwood Country Club. It is usually a sold-out function, so don't delay in securing your tickets.
  • Our annual Spring Golf Tournament also raises funds for our Marines Helping Marines program. Look for details around March, and please try to join in the fun. Our next event is in April 2017. Please consider joining us with a sponsorship and/or a golf foursome.
You can link from the Scuttlebutt section in the right-hand column for more about our many programs. ...and it’s not all work!  We take time to enjoy each other’s company through social activities too, so if you are looking for “war stories” and camaraderie join us. Our meeting place (Oakwood Country Club) has a wonderful dining room. Enjoy a meal and then gather with your fellow Marines and Corpsman at the meeting.
