The Mickey Finn Detachment is named in honor of Michael “Mickey” Finn – first Master Gunnery Sergeant in the Marine Corps (1936) and Silver Star recipient. We’re the largest Detachment in Virginia, 5th in the Nation. We are located just outside the MCB Quantico front gate and a stone’s throw from the National Museum of the Marine Corps & Heritage Center. Planning a visit to the National Museum? Come see us for lunch or dinner or just stop by for fellowship and comradeship with a brotherhood of Marines.
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. This is accomplished by banding together those who are now
serving in the United States Marine Corps and those who have been honorably discharged from that service;
voluntarily aiding and rendering assistance to all Marines and former Marines and to their widows and orphans, and by perpetuating the history of the United States Marine Corps through fitting acts to observe the anniversaries of historical occasions of particular interest to Marines.
