 Department Convention 


During the current situation with the COVID 19 the Department Convention is being cancelled. This is to include the Grand Growl.


You will be notified at a later date when we will be able to resume activities.

Most of the Country is in Stay at Home requirements.


The ones that are working are doing so at home.


Keep all our members, their families, and our Military members as well as the first responders who are being exposed on a daily basis in your prayers.


Semper Fidelis

The Unit Citation and Marine of the Year applications have been sent by the Adjutant Randy Ott to all detachments. There is also a link on the https://www.mcldeptwa.org website. The Unit Citation is in the drop down box under the heading Detachments and the Marine of the Year is under Committees.


Be careful to follow the instructions on the Marine of the Year we have had disqualifications in most years due to not following the directions.


The Commandant’s and Committee reports should reach the Adjutant by electronic form by March 15, 2020 to give him a chance to get the agenda completed in time for the meeting.

About The Marine Corps League
The Marine Corps League is the only Congressionally chartered United States Marine Corps-related veterans organization in the United States. Its Congressional Charter was approved by the 75th U.S. Congress and signed by President Franklin D. Roosevelt on August 4, 1937.
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 and former Marines 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.
The Department of Washington was founded in Seattle nearly 70 years ago and has grown to 15  detachments throughout the state.
