Marine Corps League

Royal Gorge Detachment 1318

Welcome to the Royal Gorge Detachment of the Marine Corps League, a proud assembly of Marines and Fleet Marine Force (FMF) Corpsmen based in Cañon City, Colorado. Our detachment, inspired by the valor and traditions of the United States Marine Corps, is dedicated to fostering a community of service, honor, and camaraderie among Marines, their families, and supporters.

Founded on the enduring principles laid out by Major General John A. Lejeune in 1923 and congressionally chartered in 1937, the Marine Corps League stands as a testament to the unbreakable bond shared by those who have earned the Eagle, Globe, and Anchor. Our mission is to preserve the noble traditions of the Marine Corps, provide support to Marines and their families, and inspire Americanism and volunteerism within our communities.

At the Royal Gorge Detachment, we carry this mission forward, guided by a commitment to uphold the values that define the Corps: Honor, Courage, and Commitment. Our efforts are aimed at ensuring that the legacy of the Marine Corps continues to influence and enrich the lives of our members and the communities we serve.

Our detachment is more than just an association of Marines; it is a family that extends its reach into the heart of southern Colorado. With members from Cañon City, Florence, Penrose, Brookside, and Lincoln Park, we are a vibrant part of the local fabric, actively involved in community service, veteran support initiatives, and patriotic events.

Legacy of Service

By becoming part of our league, you join a community that values loyalty, duty, and the welfare of its members. Together, we can make a difference in the lives of veterans, support our local communities, and keep the spirit of the Marine Corps alive for generations to come.
