A Message from the Department Commandant, Jon Zwirblia

Welcome to the Department of Massachusetts Marine Corps League website. Here at the Department of Massachusetts we place a heavy emphasis on camaraderie, fun, and community outreach.

We at the Department of Massachusetts take pride in our Detachments. Detachments are the backbone of the league, they are the boots on the ground, and they are what the public sees and interacts with on a regular basis. Our Marine Corps League Detachment’s strive to be an active part of our communities and to make a positive difference in them. Please check out our Detachment locator to find a Detachment near you.

My Department officers and I are are doing everything we can to actively search for Marines who have recently exited the Marine Corps in order to help provide them Veteran Transitional services through local Detachments. We want those Marines transitioning to know the camaraderie we all cherish as Marines and want them to join the league.

To prospective members visiting our site, we are always looking to add to our membership, and can help you track down a local Detachment closest to you. Contact information is available at the top of the website under Detachments. If you have reached out to a Detachment but have not heard back in a reasonable time frame, please reach out to us through the contact tab on the top of this webpage. The Marine Corps League accepts all honorably discharged Marines, FMF Corpsman or Navy Chaplains. However, if you cannot join at this time, perhaps you could make a donation. Any and all donations can be made to our Department Paymaster by contacting Bernard Heaney at bernieandnancy1@comcast.net

The Department of Massachusetts enjoys donating to many different organizations and nonprofits. Some of the programs include the Young Marine's Program, Scouting programs, Wreaths Across America, JROTC programs, Women's Shelters, The Holyoke Soldiers Home, and Veteran’s Hospitals. If it is for a good cause and supports our veteran community or community as a whole, we try to be there to help.

We hope to see you all at future meetings so far as your circumstances may permit.

Semper Fidelis,

Jon Zwirblia
