We, who served Honorably in the United States Marine Corps, have united together to establish a permanent organization under the Laws of the National Constitution of the Marine Corps League and under the laws of the United States of America and the State of Wisconsin, which shall always be non-political, non-partisan and non-sectarian; and which shall never serve as a medium of personal or political ambition or preferment.

This organization, having been incorporated by the congress of the United States, by an act signed by the President of the United States, on August 4, 1937, shall take over all of the property and obligations and continue the affairs of the previously unincorporated Marine Corps League, pursuant to such act, and for the objects and purposes therein set forth, it is provided by its Constitution.

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.
