Purpose

(1) To preserve the traditions and promote the interests of the United States Marine Corps.

(3) To fit its members for the duties of citizenship and to encourage them to serve as ably as citizens as they have served this Nation under arms.

(4) To foster a love for the principles which they have supported by blood and valor since the founding of the Republic.

(5) To hold sacred the history and memory of those Marines who have given their lives for our Nation.

(6) To maintain true allegiance to American Institutions.

(7) To aid voluntarily and to render assistance to all Marines and former Marines as well as their widows and orphans.

(8) 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.

(9) To create a bond of comradeship between those still serving and those who have returned to civilian life. All for the good of The League
