WE SHALL NEVER FORGET

03/26/2020

We would like to apologize for the late notification, but we would like to congratulate our re-elected Detachment Officers for the term 2020 - 2021

Commandant Frank Klipstein
Senior Vice Commandant Jack Weiss
Junior Vice Commandant Joan Schuster
Judge Advocate George Brock
Junior Past Commandant Paul Schultz

Next time you come across these Marines take the time to congratulate them.

If you are interested in assisting on a committee please seek out the Commandant or Sr. Vice Commandant and they will get you directed in the right direction. Currently we are looking for Marines to head up a couple of appointed positions. One being the Detachment armor where you would be responsible for the Detachments Parade rifles in their transportation to and from events as well as maintenance. There is also the need to fill the position of Historian where you would be responsible for the Detachments archives as well as recording current events.

Due to the current COVID-19 situation the April 2, 2020 Detachment meeting has been canceled. Will provide further information and updates as they become available.

Stay safe

Wearing the Legacy

Marines with the 5th Marine Regiment honored the legacy of the French Fourragere at Camp Pendleton on Nov. 22, 2016. The French government originally awarded 5th and 6th Marines the fourragere for heroic actions during World War I, they are the only Marine Corps units to ever receive the award.

On this day in 1945, U.S. Marines landed on Iwo Jima. The five-week battle that ensued comprised some of the fiercest and bloodiest fighting of the Pacific Theater of World War II. When the American flag was finally raised on Iwo Jima, the image was captured in a famous photograph that later inspired the Marine Corps Memorial overlooking Washington D.C. The names and dates of principal U.S. Marine Corps campaigns and battles are engraved at its base. As we commemorate the anniversary of the U.S. Marine landing at Iwo Jima we reflect on the recent additions to the Marine Corps Memorial to honor service in Afghanistan and Iraq.

The National Park Service preserves and shares the stories of the American military over the last three centuries. Discover the people who have protected our freedom, and learn about the places that shaped our military history and culture. www.nps.gov/subjects/military

BIO - hi my name is Glenn A. DiTillio ( President and Founder of Your New Life ). My wife is Rose M. DiTillio and she is my inspiration and she completes me in my journey. I work for NYS DOT as a Highway Maintenance Worker, a wrote an unpublished book titled “ Aspire to Inspire “, and I have served in the Marine Corps. Four years active duty, an a short time voluntary active reserve, been to roughly 17 countries and one tour in the Middle East “ Operation Dessert Thunder “. I decided to become a minister back in 2012 after I discovered that my aspirations were bigger than me. I personally have experienced the struggles during and after my transition back into civilian life. It is my life’s mission to inspire greatness in people even more so for those who have showed true leadership with the sacrifices they were willing to make for our country. It is my goal to help and encourage veterans to interact with their community and encourage the same with the community, I aspire to help veterans with their transition into civilian life with a multitude of programs that offer things that are more therapeutic in nature, things that including mental, emotional and spiritual support and strength. I believe with the right team we can inspire a nation. facebook.com/yournewlife123
