Townsend MCL Detachment #920 Welcomes You!

Funraising Project underway!  We have set up a GoFundMe campaign to raise money to defray the cost of some of our activities -- notably placement of flags at USMC gravesites!  Visit the campaign and tell all your friends to share the link!

Welcome to the Townsend Detachment of the Marine Corps League.  We normally meet on the third Monday evening each month. We do not always meet in June (because we attend the Department of Alabama MCL Convention instead), nor in December when we have a Chrismas Party instead of a business meeting.

Since resuming face-to-face meetings after relaxation of COVID-19 restrictions, we have added a Zoom component to our meetings so members unable to attend or those who are not comfortable with face-to-face meetings can participate via Zoom.  If you wish to attend by Zoom, email Chuck Moore ( and he will send you an invitation with proper meeting ID and PW.  We would welcome members and Marines to join us in person at Fried Tomato Buffet on third Mondays when we meet.  See Upcoming Events for more information.

Our members are primarily located in the south central area of Alabama, in and around the Capital City,  Montgomery.  Please see our Events page for specific dates and times.  Additional information about the Detachment can be found off the Menu tabs above or by contacting one of our Officers or Staff members.

Thank you for visiting our site.

Townsend Mission

Members of the Townsend Detachment #920 Marine Corps League Inc. join in camaraderie and fellowship for the purpose of preserving the history and 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 the service that they may effectively promote the ideals of American freedom and democracy. The Detachment aids and assists Marines, FMF Corpsmen, and FMF Chaplains and their widows and orphans. The Detachment maintains relationships with active and reserve Marine units and fosters Marine Corps sponsored programs located in the River Region. Our members volunteer and support state and local veteran events and organizations, participate in outreach through educational and citizenship activities, and endeavor to be good partners in our communities.
