The Department is proud to Welcome you to our website. We have Detachments in Birmingham, Montgomery, Mobile, Dothan, Gadsden, Auburn, Athens, Huntsville, Tuscaloosa, Anniston, Gulf Shores, Daphne, Fort Payne and Hoover. We are extremely proud to welcome the General Victor "Brute" Krulak Detachment #1414 in Hoover, Alabama and their Marines into the Department of Alabama. If you have questions about joining a Detachment in Alabama, please contact our Department Senior Vice-Commandant. We all stand at the ready to assist you.

The Department of Alabama meets quarterly in Montgomery. Any and all Marine Corps League members are welcome to attend. The dates for these meetings are flexible. Check below for the next scheduled meeting. During Each Quarterly meeting we also conduct a Devil Dog Growl. Our Devil Dog Pack Leader PDD Walt Williams conducts a great Pack Meeting and all Devil Pups, Devil Dogs and Pedigree Devil Dogs are welcome to attend. These Growls immediately follow the Department regular meeting.

Please watch this space for new events and happenings with the Department of Alabama Marine Corps League. If you are looking for a Detachment, we hope you contact us and get involved with the Marine Corps League.

Department of Alabama Commandant


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; voluntarily 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.
