    ABOUT THE MARINE CORPS LEAGUE: Incorporated by an act of Congress in 1937, the Marine Corps League perpetuates the traditions and spirit of all Marines and Navy Corpsmen, who proudly wear or have worn the eagle, globe and anchor of the Corps. The League is also comprised of associate and auxiliary members from other military branches of service, who have served our Country and have been honorably discharged. Today League membership nationally, has grown to over 60,000 members. The James L Hammons Detachment #939 was formed in 1996 to fulfill the mission stated below within the context of service to our community. The Detachment derives its name from the brother of our first Commandant, Ed Hammons, who was killed in action in Vietnam. Today the detachment boasts of over 100 active members. The detachment is located in historic Aiken, South Carolina.

    The Marine Corps League is playing an active role in our community. We are always looking for a "few good men and women" to join us. Active duty or Former Marines should email us at for membership details. Former members of all of our armed services are invited to become Associate Members. Please click on the the buttons below for more information about our activities and about joining our detachment.


    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.
