Congratulations To Our Non-Profit Of The Week
Harford County Marine Corps League / Cpl Pete Arnold Detachment 1198
The Marine Corps League is the organization for all Marines. It takes great pride in crediting its founding in 1923 to World War I hero, then Major General Commandant John A. Lejeune.
The Cpl Pete Arnold Detachment of the Marine Corps League has a rewarding history. For several years, Department of Maryland Sergeant-at-Arms, Guy Hall, had been trying to muster interest in forming a Marine Corps League Detachment in the Harford County area and sought the support of John Baker and Charles Lyons, local area Marines, to further that idea. In February 2005, three Marine veterans, namely John Baker , Jerry Brown , and Dick Lowe got together and decided to form a detachment of Harford County Marines. The Detachment was chartered as the Harford County Detachment 1198 in March 2005 under the leadership of temporary Commandant Gerald “Jerry” Brown, a past Department of Maryland Commandant from 1966 to 1967. The charter application was mailed in early March of 2005 with the signatures of 21 former Marines listed. Read more here
