The mission of the Peter P. Monaco Jr. Detachment 40 of the Marine Corps League is to unite all Marines and service members of the armed forces through community service.

We are a non-profit organization seeking a few good men and women to help fulfill our obligation of preserving and honoring the traditions, values and history of those who selflessly served before us. The Detachment takes great pride in serving the community by providing aid and support to Veterans and their families during difficult times by building strong relationships within the local community.
