The Boy Scouts of America (BSA) and the Marine Corps League (MCL) have agreed to initiate a plan of mutual support to foster the ideals of Americanism and patriotic volunteerism among America’s youth. We encourage Councils to expand their involvement of support for causes specific to the Marine Corps League and our nation’s veterans at large. The Marine Corps League will encourage and expand their involvement of Detachments in support of BSA programs toward our mutual goals for a better and more patriotic America.
The Marine Corps League believes strongly that our youth are our future and that it is our responsibility to prepare them for that future. The Scout Oath and Law that the BSA instills in youth is a strong foundation for future success. The Boy Scouts of America and Marine Corps League are excited about formalizing and strengthening our relationship and the future opportunities for us to work together to support America’s youth!
The Memorandum of Mutual Support and the Marine Corps League Community Award can be found in the Marketing & Membership Hub. Find out more about your local Marine Corps League visit: www.mclnational.org.
