About Us

Our detachment was formed (officially installed) April 28,2009. Joe Gaffney was chosen because he was a 'Mustang'. He started out as a Pvt. and rose to the rank of Captain during his 20 plus years in the Corps. He passed away a few years ago and is buried at Ft. Bayard. Ken Oglesby was a young Marine raised in Silver City. His father Ron is a Physician's asst. at Gila Regional and works in the ER. He is a decorated Corpsman that served in 'Nam', with 3/3. Ken Oglesby served in Operation Desert Storm and Somalia.

 

Mission Statement

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, 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.
