MARINE CORPS LEAGUE PADUCAH
Community Service, Esprit De Corps, USMC Traditions
Join together in camaraderie and fellowship for the purpose of preserving the traditions and promoting the interests of the United States Marine Corps. Band together those who are now serving in the USMC and those who have been honorably discharged to effectively promote the ideals of American freedom and democracy.
The Marine Corps League detachment in Paducah perpetuates the traditions and spirit of all Marines, Navy FMF Corpsmen and Navy Chaplains, who proudly wear or who have worn, the eagle, globe and anchor of the United States Marine Corps.
Initial membership cost is $35.00 and then $30.00 per year thereafter. No member is assigned or given duties except those that each is able and willing to do. We want you to join us and bring other Marines to the Marine Corps League especially younger Marines who are often unaware that the MCL exists or what it does. Our regular meeting is the second Thursday of each month at 1900 hours at the VFW, 1727 Washington Street, Paducah, KY. Members also receive the Semper Fi Magazine from the National HQ of the MCL with their membership.
