"Provide Leadership - Encourage Teamwork - Focus on Mission"

To grow our Marine Corps League in Indiana, we must "Provide Leadership" in our Detachments, "Encourage Teamwork" in our Detachments, and most of all "Focus on Mission" in all our Detachments.
Mission: 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.

Recruit Chesty XIV meets Sgt Chesty XIII

A new recruit is about to step onto the yellow footprints — only he needs four of them, and they need to be paw-shaped.
Rct. Chesty XIV, the new Marine Corps mascot, met his drill instructor, Sgt. Chesty XIII, for the first time this month. And judging by the look on the sergeant’s face, it seems he’s prepared to use some serious knife-paws on the pup.

Marines who operate the Corps’ new Expeditionary Fire Support System will soon have a new guided mortar round that promises to increase accuracy and double the range.
Industry experts say the new 120mm Precision Extended Range Munition, or PERM, should be fielded to units in as little as two years.
Raytheon Co. announced Jan. 22 it has received a contract to provide functioning PERM rounds for live-fire testing within 18 months, making them the second company to enter the Marine Corps’ design competition. Alliant Techsystems Inc. also has been tapped to compete for the final design. Marine officials will select the better of the two, and PERM could be hitting targets in the war zone by 2015, according to industry sources.
