Our Mission

To raise funding and serve the needs of Michigan veterans, their families, and descendants through the programs, scholarships, and services provided by The Marine Corps League Department of Michigan.

Our Programs

Accredited Veteran Services – The Department of Michigan Marine Corps League Veteran Service division employees Veteran Affairs Accredited Service Officers to assist veterans and their families with the application process when applying for benefits from the U.S. Department of Veterans Affairs. Our motto: “Don’t Face the VA Alone”. Our trained service officers help veterans file complete applications and will assist at no charge to the veteran any appeals for claims denied.

Scholarships – The Department of Michigan Marine Corps League has been providing up to $500 to applicants for many years. These scholarships help descendants of U.S. Marines with college expenses.

Annual VA Christmas Parties – The holidays can be a lonely time for Marines and veterans with little family around at the VA Hospitals and State Veteran Homes in Michigan. Members work to provide an evening during the month of December to the Veterans who are receiving long term care or rehabilitation. Food, entertainment, and small gifts are given to the veterans to show them our appreciation for their service, then and now.
