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.
