This public event is spearheaded by the Frank J. Carroll Detachment of the Marine Corps League in cooperation with the Colorado Columbine Women Marines History Chapter. However, it is an event open to the public, to all branches of service, and to all generations of veterans who need support and want to participate in the event.
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, banding together those who are now serving in the United States Marine Corps and those who have been honorably discharged from that service that they may effectively promote the ideals of American freedom and democracy, voluntarily aiding and rendering assistance to all Marines and former Marines and to their widows and orphans; and 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.
The Women Marines Association is the only veterans association for and about women Marines. WMA is a non-profit 501(c)(3) veteran organization. The Women Marines Association was established in Denver, CO, in 1960 to ensure that our history as women Marines would continue to be told and passed on to a new generation of Marines. Aside from our charitable & educational activities, our members enjoy renewing old friendships and creating new ones through the mails and in attending our biennial convention. Chapters and members across the nation work on preserving our history, community programs and supporting our military personnel.
