July 2015 Commandant’s Message

Last month I had the opportunity to attend the Department of Utah, MCL meeting at Sandy, Utah. I, of course, represented the best Detachment within the Department. I knew this, but I must confess I was a little surprised that the Commandant, Department of Utah, MCL was also convinced. At our last Detachment meeting (Saturday 13 June) I had the opportunity to inform those in attendance that the Dixie Detachment 1270 was awarded the Meritorious Unit Commendation (at the Department level) for the period 1 July 2014 – 30 May 2015. Awarded on the 6th day of June 2015. The citation reads: “Utah Dixie Detachment 1270, St George, Utah is 84 members strong. Increasing their membership 13 % over the past year. They are recognized for their Devil Pups Program, Marine helping Marines, Assisting homeless Veterans, Annual Golf Tournament, car washes and they have a strong Toys for Tots Program. Their continuous activities are upholding the purpose and values of the Marine Corps League. It is my honor and privilege, as Department Commandant to present Utah Dixie Detachment 1270 with the Department Meritorious Commendation.”

Of course, all those members who were members during the period 1 July 2014 – 20 May 2014 are authorized to wear the Department Meritorious Unit Commendation Ribbon. Ribbons will be available for those Members at the 11 July 2015, meeting. We currently have 97 members and I expect 2-3 visitors “potential members” at our next meeting. How many Members have their MCL membership form at the ready?

I would be remiss if I did not mention we had a few dedicated members (and one dedicated wife by the name of Michelle Gregory) who rose early in the morning (0530) to wish some special WWII Marines and other veterans who were participating in the Honor Flight program bon voyage. Prior to their embarking aboard the buses, all Detachment members formed two honor lines and presented a hand salute to the departing veterans. Not only were we there for their departure but greeted them on their return. Again, a small gesture of respect but it meant a lot to the veterans. This became evident to me when I read an email I received, only a few days ago from Ken Brown (a member in good standing). I quote: “Dear Commander D'Arcy: Please give a big “thank you” to the detachment for the outstanding farewell and welcome given to us honor flight participants! For me, the Marine Corps League presence was one of the highlights of the entire honor flight event which could not have been a better tribute and honor for us old vets. The entire trip was just fantastic, inspiring, patriotic, and unforgettable experience of a lifetime. Hope many of you can go. Thanks again for all you do. You are all just wonderful! Best Wishes, Ken Brown”

I look forward to seeing you all early Saturday Morning ready to participate in the 4th of July local parade. We now have a decorated trailer (that will seat 12 Marines) for those who would rather sit than walk. Uniform: White Shirt/Blue Trousers for those that have them, for the rest be there in appropriate attire.
