Welcome to the web site of "The Choctaw Detachment", Detachment #778 of the Marine Corps League. Marine Corps League was incorporated by an act of Congress in 1937. It perpetuates the traditions and spirit of ALL Marines who proudly wear or who have worn the eagle, globe and anchor of the Corps. The mission of the League is to provide an organization where Marines can join together in camaraderie and fellowship for the purpose of preserving the traditions and promoting the interests of theStates Marine Corps. As part of this mission we render aid and assistance to all Marines and former Marines and to their widows and orphans. We also support the community they live in  Click here to see more about Marine Corps League Programs
The members of this Detachment live up to these traditions by supporting the Baton Rouge Area Marines and their families . This includes providing Funeral Honors for fallen Marines. We also help our community by providing educational programs at local schools, participating in patriotic events, volunteering for community projects/events and supporting local charities
