Detachment #853

chesapeake, va

The Chesapeake Detachment 853 of the Marine Corps League is located in the heart of Chesapeake, Virginia. Founded by Marine Corps Veterans in May 1993.


Members of the Marine Corps League join together in camaraderie and fellowship for the purpose of preserving the traditions and promoting the interests of the United States Marine Corps, banding together those who are now serving in the United States Marine Corps and those who have been honorably discharged from that service that they may effectively promote the ideals of American freedom and democracy, voluntarily aiding and rendering assistance to all Marines, FMF Corpsmen and former Marines and FMF Corpsmen and their widows and orphans; and to perpetuate the history of the United States Marine Corps and by fitting acts to observe the anniversaries of historical occasions of particular interest to Marines.

We're pleased to make our Facebook page available to keep members informed of what's going on in the detachment, make the detachment easier to contact by outside parties, and provide information for those who may be interested in becoming a member of the only federally chartered Marine Corps-related veterans organization in the United States.


Meeting are held on the fourth Thursday of the Month at 1900 hrs.
116 Reservation Road, Chesapeake, VA 23322. 
​Annual dues for members are $30.00
