First chartered in 1965 and
re-chartered in 1993, the North Iowa Detachment of the Marine Corps League is a vibrant and active veteran's organization in the North Iowa area. 


 Dedicated to promoting and preserving ideals of the United States Marine Corps, membership is open to all present and veteran Marines and Navy corpsmen that were attached to an FMF unit. Also non Marines may join as an associate member.  Is not just a saying.  It is the creed of thousands of men and women who honorably served our Corps and our Country. 


 Come look us over.  There is no obligation to join.  Should you decide to, you will be associating again with the greatest band of Brothers and Sisters in the world.  Once again, continue to be one of
