The annual picnic for all Marines, FMF Corpsmen, members of Pocatello’s Stephen Dee Merrell Detachment #698 of the Marine Corps League, associate members of the League, and their families is scheduled to take place this coming Saturday, August 20.  The venue for the event, which will take place from noon to 3:00 p.m., is Jensen’s Grove Amphitheater in Blackfoot.  Locate them by looking for the Marine Corps Colors, which will be posted.

The League is furnishing hamburgers, hot dogs, buns, and condiments, and asks members to bring a potluck dish to share.

The mission of the Marine Corps League is to promote the interest and to preserve the traditions of the United States Marine Corps; strengthen the fraternity of Marines and their families; serve Marines, FMF Corpsmen, and FMF Chaplains who wear or who have worn the Eagle, Globe and Anchor; and foster the ideals of Americanism and patriotic volunteerism.

Former Marines who are interested in learning more about the Marine Corps League or applying for membership can email the League at

Marine Corps League members meet in Pocatello on the first Thursday of every month beginning at 7:00 p.m. at the Bannock County Veterans Memorial Building, 300 N. Johnson Avenue, in Pocatello.
