Welcome to the Townsend Detachment of the Marine Corps League. We normally meet on the third Saturday of each month. Our members are primarily located in the south central area of Alabama, in and around the Capitol City, Montgomery. Please see our Events page for specific dates and times. Additional information about the Detachment can be found off the Menu tabs above or by contacting one of our Officers or Staff members.
Thank you for visiting our site.
Members of the Townsend Detachment #920 Marine Corps League Inc. join in camaraderie and fellowship for the purpose of preserving the history and traditions and promoting the interests of the United States Marine Corps, banding together those who are now serving in the United States Marine Corps and those who have been honorably discharged from the service that they may effectively promote the ideals of American freedom and democracy. The Detachment aids and assists Marines, FMF Corpsmen, and FMF Chaplains and their widows and orphans. The Detachment maintains relationships with active and reserve Marine units and fosters Marine Corps sponsored programs located in the River Region. Our members volunteer and support state and local veteran events and organizations, participate in outreach through educational and citizenship activities, and endeavor to be good partners in our communities.
