The Marine Corps League is organized around Marine detachments which are formed at the community level. Each detachment, including Free State elects officers once a year in March. In our case, incumbents are encouraged to serve at least two years. Traditionally line officers (e.g. those elected: Commandant, Senior Vice, and Junior Vice) “work the chairs,” starting as Junior Vice Commandant. Other officers and positions are appointed by the Detachment Commandant.
