Keeping with the Marine Corps League mission to serve our community. In 2020, the MCL community service Volunteers focus on Veterans who are living in Nursing Homes. Our volunteers delivered over 300 greeting cards to Nursing home Veterans. Our purpose of this post is to motivate other Marine Corps League Detachments to do the same by delivering Greetings Cards or in the future visit them. Our MCL detachment motto is " "one day of the year is not enough". If you have any questions feel free to contact me and I will be happy to help. Thank You. ... See MoreSee Less
