Marine Corps League

The Marine Corps League "MCL" (Crater Lake Detachment #373) is a local organization that helps to preserve the traditions of the Marine Corps.

Members of the Marine Corps League join together in camaraderie and fellowship for the purpose of preserving the traditions and promoting the interests of the United States Marine Corps, banding together those who are now serving in the United States Marine Corps and those who have been honorably discharged from that service that they may effectively promote the ideals of American freedom and democracy, voluntarily aiding and rendering assistance to all Marines, FMF Corpsmen and former Marines and FMF Corpsmen and to their widows and orphans; and to perpetuate the history of the United States Marine Corps and by fitting acts to observe the anniversaries of historical occasions of particular interest to Marines.

Our local chapter: Crater Lake Chapter was chartered in 1962. It is also known as the Leatherneck Club. Marines are encouraged to join, and other veterans are also encouraged to join as associate members. The Leatherneck Club is very active in community events, especially with assisting the Oregon Tech Student Veterans Program. View the location of this detachment.
