Joining eleven other Detachments in the great state of Alabama, the United States Marine Corps League has opened a new Detachment in Daphne on the campus of the United States Sports Academy.
In this photo, Dr. Thomas P. Rosandich, founding President of the Academy and a former Marine Corps Officer, presents a $1,000.00 check to Sara Cole, Executive Secretary of the Academy and acting paymaster of the fledgling Marine Corps League of Daphne, to help cover expenses related to the organization of the new Detachment.
The next meeting will be held at 1800 (6:00 p.m.) on Tuesday, 5 April 2011, at the Eagle’s Nest on the campus of the Academy, located off of Highway 98. The Marine Corps League is open to Marines of all ages who have served honorably, as well as FMF Navy Corpsmen and individuals from other branches of service.
