River Cities Detachment
Marine Corps League


We received our Charter from the Marine Corps League on November 10, 2001.  We are very proud to be a part of the Marine Corps League and our association with the United States Marine Corps is very evident to all.

We meet every 4th Wednesday of the month at VFW Post 1114,  110 N. Wabash Avenue, Evansville, IN at 1900. River Cities Detachment is currently looking for a new detachment home that we can call our own.

Mission Statement

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. This is accomplished by banding together those who are now serving in the United States Marine Corps and those who have been honorably discharged from that service; aiding and rendering assistance to all Marines and former Marines and to their widows and orphans, and by perpetuating the history of the United States Marine Corps through fitting acts to observe the anniversaries of historical occasions of particular interest to Marines.

Some people live an entire lifetime and wonder if they have ever made a difference in the world, but the Marines don't have that problem.
