ABOUT

The Marine Corps League is the only congressionally chartered United States Marine Corps-related veteran’s organization.  Its Congressional Charter was approved by the 75th U.S. Congress and signed by President Franklin D. Roosevelt on August 4, 1937. The organization credits its founding in 1923 to legendary Marine Corps Commandant John A. Lejeune.

MISSION

The Central Jersey Leathernecks, 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.

SERVICE

With our organization’s mission always in mind, we band together to promote the interests of fellow Marines and the United States of America.  We actively participate in street fairs, township parades, Eagle Scout courts, flag-folding workshops, high school JROTC scholarships, Young Marines, Toys for Tots, Rose Campaign fundraising for the Semper Fi Fund and service dogs for Vet4Warriors.  Please contact us if you would like to continue your service or if you'd like to make a donation.

HONOR

We the Central Jersey Leathernecks, Marine Corps League, are dedicated 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.  We actively participate in military parades, serve as the color guard for veteran and athletic events, serve as guest speakers during veteran events, and fall-in for honor guard and burial details when called upon.  As long as one Marine stands, no Marine will ever be forgotten.  Semper fidelis.
