Camp J H Pendleton Oceanside Detachment 21 Marine Corps League

Who are we?

The Marine Corps League perpetuates the traditions and spirit of all Marines and Navy FMF Corpsmen and Chaplains who have proudly worn the eagle, globe and anchor.

The Marine Corps League was founded by Major General Commandant John A Lejeune in 1923.  The League is the only Congressionally-chartered Marine Corps-related organization in the United States and has over 76,000 members.

What does the Marine Corps League do?

Members of the Marine Corps League join together for the purpose of preserving the traditions and promoting the interests of the United States Marine Corps.  We support each other and participate in activities that give our Detachment a sense of purpose and enjoyment in the company of Marines and friends of Marines.

Some of our National-level programs include Marine Helping Marines-Wounded and Injured Marines Programs, which supports injured Marines at Naval Hospitals in Camp Pendleton, Balboa and other locations.

What does our Detachment do?

Our Oceanside Detachment has supported the Marine West Expo aboard Camp Pendleton and is a partner organization to the Veterans Association of North County (VANC), located on Mission Avenue in Oceanside.

Our Detachment enjoys social outings to San Diego area events and celebration of Marine Corps traditions such as the Marine Corps Birthday.
