Okay, Marines. Listen up. This is a new year, but it is no different than any other year in supporting your fellow Marines, FMF Corpsmen, and FMF Chaplains. Be there for someone and you will make a difference.

We each stood on the yellow footprints, coming from all backgrounds and belief systems. We were all different (we still are different!), but we stood for a common goal. That is what makes Marines. Standing and supporting each other.

Let 2021 be the year that you make a difference. Join a Marine Corps League detachment. Donate to the League. Recruit others to join. Connect the community to your local detachment. Reach out and make a difference. I promise that not only will you not regret it, but you will wonder why you did not make this effort years earlier.

The Marine Corps League’s door is open to you, regardless of MOS, rank, or time or place of service. The Marine Corps League is here for you, so you can be here for others.

Happy New Year Marines. Do good.
