Young Marines of the Marine Corps League, Inc.
October 1, 2009

The unit I am writing about is located in Crystal River, FL. It is open to boys and girls from ages 8 to 18. The training is great. It teaches the children to respect their parents, their country, their God(non-denominational), their peers and themselves. It helps them to be a better American. They will be the leaders of the future that we can be proud of. It is run like the military. They have classes as well as physical training and campouts. Some go on to college or the military. They are given awards and promotions similar to the military. My husband and I are proud to be affiliated with them.

The kinds of staff and volunteers that I met were...

Some were former military members and some were parents of the children who became very involved with the organization.

If this organization had 10 million bucks, it could...

Build a base of operations instead of renting space. They would not have to worry about having money for uniforms or campouts or trips.
