The new Illinois Marine website is up and running. Some of the information from the old site has yet to be added but that will happen in the near future.
Please look around and if you see something that needs to be corrected or added, email me to let me know
Welcome to The Illinois Marine web site. This site is intended to bring up-to-date information, the latest news and contact information for the Department of Illinois, Districts and all Detachments and Auxiliary Units in the state.
This site will provide real-time updates and listing of information that is of interest to Marines, friends and family. Please visit the Detachment Locator page to find out which Detachment is meeting near you. The Events page shows who is having events that you might be interested in attending or fundraisers that allow us to provide for our veterans. This web site is available to all Marines, family members and interested parties to help pass on information about the Marine Corps League. There are several downloadable forms that are listed on the Forms page. New to the site is Detachment News Letters posted in PDF format.
Congratulations to PDC Mike Sturch on his new position as
National Central Division Vice Commandant
We received several donations to the Scholarship fund in the memory of Committee Member PDC Bill Barta who will be missed greatly. He would have enjoyed the essays this year; they were inventive and a pleasure to read. The committee selected four recipients to receive the Barbara M Olejnicki Memorial Scholarship:
Paige Straight (U of Alabama) granddaughter of Luke Straight MCL #1217
Amanda Barta (IL State U) granddaughter of Bill Barta MCL #399
Joseph Metcalf (DePaul U) grandson of Bill Barta MCL #399
Haley Ferguson (Kent State U) granddaughter of Larry Olson MCL #399
We wish them success in all of their future endeavors.
Dept IL MCL Scholarship Committee
