 Following quote by:

The Commandant of the Marine Corps, General James F. Amos.

“You’re a Marine, just in a different uniform and you’re in a different phase of your life. But you’ll always be a Marine because you went to Parris Island, San Diego or the hills of Quantico. There’s no such thing as a former Marine.”

The current and past members of Detachment #271 are a diverse group of Marine Veterans, active duty Marines and FMF Corpsmen from all walks of life and history in the Marine Corps.
We are still looking for “A Few More Good members”
