The Young Marines embarked on an overnight adventure on the USS New Jersey. The experience will stick with them forever. Overheard from a Cub Scout with his group...” I wanna be a Young Marine”!
Greatest compliment that could have been paid to our young cadets.

"I tell them I'm honored and privileged”

The man on the left is Dr. Bill Krissoff, an orthopedic surgeon. The man on the right, his son, First Lt. Nathan Krissoff who was killed in Fallujah, Iraq in 2006.

Upon receiving the news, Bill decided to honor his son by joining the military; the only catch was his age. Bill was 60 years old at the time, and way above the age limit for enlistment.

In August, the surgeon seized an opportunity when he and his wife, Christine, were invited to meet President Bush in Reno along with the families of other fallen soldiers from the area. The President asked: “Is there anything that I can do?” Bill replied: “Well, there is one thing. I'd like to join the Navy Medical Corps. Is there any way you could help me with this process?”

A few days later, President Bush granted him an age waiver and Bill was able to join. In 2009, at the age of 63, he deployed to Iraq for 7 months, came home, and immediately volunteered to deploy to Afghanistan. He is credited for saving dozens of lives while performing more than 200 trauma operations.

Bill Krissoff said most people understood why he joined the military, especially those who lost a loved one in Iraq or Afghanistan. But he said others think he was crazy to give up a successful orthopedic practice to go to a war zone.

When you look up “always faithful” in the dictionary, you will see photos of two senior members of the Reinhard detachment, Bill Szabunia and Paul Coleman. Every Memorial Day weekend they place a wreath at the grave of TSgt Fred Stockham. This WWI veteran was the recipient of the Medal of Honor, Silver Star and Purple Heart at Belleau Wood and other campaigns. This hero is buried at Hollywood Cemetery in Union NJ. Dedication...one of the hallmarks of being a Marine and MC League member. Semper Fi Gents!

Our Story

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 and former Marines 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. The Marine Corps League was founded by Major General Commandant, John A. Lejeune, in 1923 and chartered by an Act of Congress on August 4, 1937.

Its membership of nearly 50,000 is comprised of honorably discharged, active duty and Reserve Marines with 90 days of service or more, and retired Marines. It includes officer, enlisted, male and female members.

The League is also open to new members who have served in the USA Armed Services. Who are honorably discharged, active duty and Reserve with 90 days of service or more, and retired service members. It includes officer, enlisted, male and female members.
