Notes From The Comandant - March 2014 Printer friendly page | Send this story to a friend

In my last column, I spoke about opportunities to recruit new members. In January, a contingency of us headed out to Camp Pendleton to attend the Marine West Military Expo.  Marine Corps League and Auxiliary members from several states worked together assembling and passing out hundreds of bags with the Marine Corps League logo containing a mug and a copy of our latest Semper Fi magazine to everyone attending the show. Inside the show tent, Marines staffed a recruiting table informing the active duty Marines and Sailors as to what the Marine Corps League is, what we do and how we support our active duty Marine Corps and our community. These active duty Marines and FMF Corpsman were offered a free Honorary Membership for six months along with three issues of our Semper Fi magazine. If they like what they see and read about our league they have the opportunity to become new members, if they desire, they can be transferred to a detachment of their choice.  The National Jr. Vice Commandant oversees this program that has now been in place for several years and has proved successful. Just one more way of reaching out to Marines letting them know who we are, the many programs we have and as league members, the great camaderie we enjoy.

About a month after our National Convention last August, we had another round-table meeting with the Secretary of Defense.  We were privileged to receive top-level briefings from several of the Deputy Secretaries and Assistant Deputy Secretaries in the Department of Defense and they fielded every question that the Veterans Service Organization representatives threw at them.  Secretary Hagel spent over an hour with the group and shared a lot of information about his vision of the way forward and his plans and concerns.  He certainly appears to be a man driven to make good things happen in the Department and his chief concern is taking care of the troops.

Welcome to another great issue of our Semper Fi magazine. As I travel across the country visiting many of our Departments and Detachments, I receive many accolades about the magazine and the great variety of content that is published in it. Thanks to our National Executive Director/Editor Mike Blum and Bill Hudgins of Hammock Publishing for the fine job that they do for everyone that receives this publication.

MCL National Commandant's Birthday Message Printer friendly page | Send this story to a friend

As Marine Corps League members, family and friends, come together  to celebrate the 238th Birthday of our beloved Corps. Let’s pause for a moment to reflect back on our history since 1775. Hundreds of thousands of Marines that came before us earned that title and wear the Eagle Globe and Anchor embedded in their heart, from the day they first earned the title of “United States Marine” . Where we have been and what we have done as Marines is evident by The official Battle colors of the Marine Corps that display some fifty streamers .These streamers represent both U.S. and foreign awards as well as those periods of service, expeditions and campaigns that the Marine Corps has participated in from the Revolutionary War to the present.

Rather than follow a theme as I attempt to do with most of my articles, in this article I will touch on several different subjects that I believe will be of interest to our members.

First and foremost, I wanted to share with you that I just got off the phone with Past National Commandant Vic Voltaggio who is home recovering from a major heart attack and triple bypass surgery. Vic sounded good and is just starting to regain his strength after a week in the hospital. Nurse Jan has been by his side constantly, and he referred to her as “his angel.”

As I begin this column for our next issue of Semper Fi, I look back on the many events that have transpired since our National Midwinter Conference, including a deeply moving trip to Iwo Jima. Upon the completion of the Conference, we headed out to Camp Pendleton for some warm weather and Marine West, which this year was held at Camp Del Mar, right on the beach.
It would be an exaggeration to say it was cool. The temperature in the early morning hours, up until about 1030 hovered in the 30's—not warm California weather by a long shot. However, the Expo was successful again, and we signed up some Marines as members.

Quite often I get questions about how we interact with the government here in Washington and on the National level. On 21–22 March, I had the opportunity to represent the Marine Corps League, joining with the leadership of several other veteran service and military service and support organizations at a two-day conference with the new Secretary of Defense Chuck Hagel and D-o-D senior executives in the Pentagon.

We Take Care of Our Own

Someone (not me, I assure you) once said, “Don’t despair, Spring is in the air." As I write this, the temperature is hovering around 4 degrees and everything is frozen here in Michigan, but I am looking forward to spring. Recently, during Hurricane Sandy, many of our Marines and their families were devastated along the East Coast. Many lost their homes and much of their belongings during this horrific storm. Northeast Division Vice Commandant Dennis Tobin received a call from the Department of New York Staff asking what they needed. He told them, “everything.” Two days later, a 53-foot tractor-trailer and a dozen Marines made their way downstate through a snowstorm to the Staten Island Detachment. They brought food, blankets, clothing, generators, chainsaws and multiple other items to the Marines and their families on Staten Island.

I want to begin by wishing everyone a very Happy and prosperous New Year. The past few months have been quite busy. In my last column I mentioned briefly about my trip to Washington for a week of festivities beginning with the wreath laying by our Commandant, Jim Amos at the Marine Corps War Memorial in Arlington. That evening we were guests at the Commandants Birthday Ball. There were over 3,300 people at the ball. Everyone from PFC’s to Generals. Commandant Amos had also invited some Wounded Warriors and one wounded warrior, a Staff Sergeant was his Guest of Honor. This Marine and his fiancé were married one month ago and the wedding was held at the Commandants house at 8th & I. What a great memory for this young Marine and his bride.

Elevator Speech - 4 Easy Steps to Promoting the Marine Corps League

One indicator of a well-run nonprofit organization is whether or not the membership, officers at all levels, board members, and staffs, consistently and personally promote the organization throughout the community. In part, this is accomplished by dozens of informal conversations (elevator speeches) that are delivered by people involved with the organization and help build awareness of the organization's value.

November 12th will undoubtedly be one of the proudest days in my career as your Executive Director.  On that day, the Marine Corps League will unveil and dedicate the Chesty Puller Monument standing proudly on an outcropping overlooking the entrance and pointing the way to the National Museum of the Marine Corps. For several years, we struggled with the question of the best way for the Marine Corps League to be represented and leave its legacy upon the Museum and Semper Fidelis Memorial Park.  Two years ago, your Board of Trustees approved the idea of erecting this monument to celebrate Chesty Puller, a true Marine hero and icon.  Through your generous donations and purchase of pathway bricks, we have been able to make it happen. Additionally, the name “MARINE CORPS LEAGUE” has now been etched into the wall in the Commandant’s Circle in the rotunda of the Museum.  What a proud and glorious day for ALL members of the League and our supporters.
It's not too late to help the Marine Corps League fund this epic monument!
