The new Illinois Marine website is up and running. Some of the information from the old site has yet to be added but that willl happen within the next week or so.
Please look around and if you see something that needs to be corrected or added, email me to let me know.
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.
This is a National Youth Program centering on education and community service for both boys and girls ages 8 through high school. This program promotes the mental, moral and physical development. It focuses of character building, leadership and promotes a healthy, drug-free lifestyle.
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/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 or by clicking HERE. New to the site are Detachment Newsletters posted in PDF format.
