  Message from the National President:

Greetings Auxiliary Members! 


Happy 245th Birthday to all our Marines!


This month we celebrate the Marine Corps Birthday and the special Veterans' Day
to honor all Veterans who put their personal lives on hold to assure the safety of the
United States of America. They gave of their knowledge, talents and skill to help 
preserve our freedoms and lifestyle. To the Auxiliary members, this is an everyday
occurrence to recognize the selfless gift they gave to every American. Or Auxiliary 
goals and principles help Veterans across the nation and always will. It is our honor
to thank and serve our Marines, Active Duty Military, and all Veterans. We proudly say
Thank You!


Happy Thanksgiving Day! Thanksgiving is a family affair dear to our hearts. It is a time
to count our blessings and to savor the joy we have received through family and
friends. It is a time to remember hose who have lost precious love ones and to comfort
our members and their families who are enduring hardships. I wish for all warmth and 
joy as you gather with family and friends to celebrate as your local community advises.


Across this great nation, Auxiliaries are stepping up to the plate and helping from 
Louisiana, Michigan and Florida to just name a few. The PNP Norma A Liner Unit
in Louisiana is helping with hurricane relief by raising funds with the League, a big
undertaking for a new unit. A Michigan Unit produced a short tribute video honoring
Veterans which they posted on Facebook, and a Florida Unit is promoting working
together to help keep their unit and detachment strong. Great job ladies!

 

It was a special honor to install the officers of the PNP Norma A. Liner nit by Zoom
October 13th. I was assisted by the able help of Carol Mazzara, Southeast Division Vice 
President. Congratulations for a wonderful first year! We wish for your unit much success
and growth s you venture into your second year.


Mid-Winter Conference in Norfolk, Virginia is scheduled for February 25th-27th.
Please get your registration in as soon as possible; there is a 250
-guest limit. Units and 
Departments show your pride and support. Please put an ad in the program book. Details
for registration and ads are located on the Marine Corps League website.


On October 22, 2020, Jim Ransom, MCL Convention Chair, and representatives from the
League, the Devil Dogs, the Auxiliary, and the 2021 Convention hosts (Department of 
Illinois Convention Committee) gathered in Springfield, IL. There will be a report at 
Mid-Winter. The hotel and overflow hotel are both great facilities and across the street
from each other.  The Department of Illinois has some great ideas to make our Convention
successful. Get your reservations in early.

 

As we the Auxiliary move forward, I am confident things will get better. I challenge our
auxiliary members to char what is working for their Units and Departments in
these pandemic times. Working together; the best is yet to come!



Thank you for all you do. Be Safe, Be Well!


Semper Fidelis,
