Event Details: Welcome from the Montford Point Marines. All Services Welcome
Established to Perpetuate the legacy of the First African Americans who entered the United States Marine Corps from 1942 to 1949. All branches of the U. S. Military past or present are welcome regardless of race, creeds, or national origin. Membership in the Ladies Auxiliary is open to wives, daughters, sisters, and mothers of members of the U. S. Military past or present.
Recent events have proven the strength, stability and solidarity of the United States, the continent of North America and the entire free world. This same attitude of camaraderie has always been one of the basic building blocks of the Montford Point Marines. Although Veterans come from all walks of life, our friendship, support and devotion to each other are unwavering. And there are so many reasons for this.
Whether you’re looking for a place that you and your family can become socially active, or you want to be involved with a group that supports an upstanding charitable cause, the Montford Point Marines offers all of this, and more.
The Montford Point Marines is a fraternity — a group of men and women with common interests who basically enjoy having a good time and serving the community.
You may recognize the Veterans as the men who march in parades, or you may think of the Montford Point Marines conventions.
But just who are the Montford Point Marines — these men who belong to this colorful and patriotic organization? One thing that all Veterans have in common is their heritage.
All Veterans are a fraternity that is even larger and older than the Montford Point Marines itself. All Veterans are committed to making good men better — an extension of the golden rule. And all Veterans share the belief in the brotherhood.
As I mentioned earlier, Veterans come from all walks of life. We are doctors and dentists, movie stars and stage performers, plumbers and mechanics. We’re husbands and fathers, corporate executives, the fellow who lives next door or works in the office down the hall.
The Montford Point Marines hold regular meetings, and we also have many fun activities for our members, such as barbecues, fish fries, dances, banquets, and so forth.
The Montford Point Marines knows that a man’s family is extremely important, and we include a variety of activities and events that the whole family can enjoy.
One of the best things about being a Montford Point Marine is that no matter who you are, no matter what you do for a living, no matter where you go, you are never a stranger — anywhere.
Wherever you go, you can be assured of meeting men with a similar background and enthusiasm for living.
What the average person cannot know, what they can never experience — unless they are Veterans — is the camaraderie, the deep friendships, the good fellowship and the great times shared by all Veterans.
But I don’t want any of you to think that the fun and fellowship of the Montford Point Marines is all there is.
The purpose of the Association is voluntary participation in, support, and promotion of community services, for improving social conditions of our veterans, families, youth and the growing population of senior citizens.
As you can see, a Montford Point Marines life is full — we have fun and fellowship.
If you need a sense of belonging — we’ve got it. If you have a longing to help others — we’ve got it.
If you want more friends in your life — we’ve got it. If you want family activities to enjoy — we’ve got that, too.
So, if you want to be a part of a premier organization, consider what the Montford Point Marines can do for you.
Thank you for your time.
