About Us

Congratulations to Illinois for being chosen for the 2021 National Marine Corps League Convention site.

The actual dates of the conventions will be August 9-13, 2021.  Hotel dates available will be August 6-14.

 At the Department of Illinois' 75th Dept. Convention, we were awarded a National Meritorious Unit Commendation by National Commandant Wendell Webb.  All who were Members in Good Standing in June of 2019 are authorized to wear the National Meritorious Unit Commendation Ribbon.  Ribbons will be ordered by individual detachments for their membership.  

Semper Fi,

Bruce Blackmer
