The Marine Corps League is proud to support our Marines in many areas. We have 10 Divisions covering 48 Departments, and over 1,140 Detachments in communities across the Country. The Marine Corps League is the only congressionally chartered United States Marine Corps related veterans' organizations in the United States. Its congressional charter was approved by the 75th U.S. Congress and signed by President Franklin D. Roosevelt on August 4, 1937. Major General John A. LeJeune, the 13th Marine Corps Commandant was one of our founding members.
The Department of Oklahoma reports to the Southern Division (Oklahoma, Texas and Arkansas). The Department has eight subordinate detachments within the state of Oklahoma, and each has a separate chain of command consisting of a Commandant, Senior Vice, Jr. Vice and Judge Advocate as elected Officers. Every detachment has their own By Laws and Administrative procedures (in accordance with Roberts Rules) which are a direct reflection of our higher authority, Marine Corps League National.
The Marine Corps League provides funeral honors support to over 10,000 funerals per year. This support allows the Marine Corps (Active and Reserve) to focus more of their resources on mission preparation.

We have several scholarship/award programs including the Merchant Marine Academy Marine-Option Honor Graduate, Marine Corps University LtGen Lejeune (luh-jern) Leadership Award, Delta Dental Scholarship, and college scholarships through the Marine Corps League Foundation.
One of our most critical missions is assisting transitioning Marines and their families in support of the Marine Corps' Marine for Life program.
With our partners at the Marine Corps Association, we produce the Marine Military Expositions including Modern Day Marine Expo, Marine West Expo, and Marine South Expo.
