 Good Morning Marines,

We had a great meeting in September, with 21 members in attendance.  Three new members were brought into the fold:  Marines Mike Cherney, Alan Schmeits, and Chad Spahr.  Our October meeting was also well attended with 20 persent and we brought 3 more new members on Board:  Marines Rodney Cooper, Andrew Maceo and Geraldine Roberts.  Welcome to the detachment!

Shared that the detachment voted unanimously to sponsor a new Young Marines unit located in Battle Ground, Washington with Alex Baran.  The community is excited about it and eagerly backing it.

The car wash fundraiser with the VVA and the Marine Cadets went well on October 3rd with volunteers John Stofiel, Ron Brandon and Lynn Bolte from the detachment.

Our Emblem, our Flag, our Swords and our Uniforms are all symbols that represent our illustrious history and our elite warrior ethos.  These symbols connect today's Marines to the entire lineage of "Warriors" who, since 1775, have earned their places in this country's history as the Few, the Proud, the Marines.
