Semper Fi Logo
Incorporated by an act of Congress in 1937, the Marine Corps League
perpetuates the traditions and spirit of ALL Marines who proudly
wear or who have worn the eagle, globe and anchor of the Corps.

At Guantanamo Bay, Cuba, 25 April 1913, Marines of the Second Provisional Brigade formed the Marine Corps Association. John A. Lejeune, then a lieutenant colonel, headed its first executive committee.  The purposes for which the MCA was formed have not changed: to disseminate knowledge of the military art and science among members; to provide for professional advancement; to foster the spirit and preserve the traditions of the Marine Corps; to increase the efficiency of the Marine Corps and to further the interest of the military naval services in all ways not inconsistent with the good of the general government.
