Marine Rose Program

Started by U.S. Marine Eddie Gallagher from New York, designed to parallel the VFW "Poppy" program to provide funds for Marine Corps League Detachments to assist veterans and youth and provide other services to the community, including: Health and comfort items for hospitalized veterans at local VA Hospitals; Support programs such as bingo or holiday parties for hospitalized or retired veterans in Retirement Homes; Scholarships; Assist youth programs including the Boy Scouts of America’s Eagle Scout Courts of Honor; Young Marines Program; Wounded Warriors Program; And, provide Humanitarian Aid. Marine Corps League Detachments proudly volunteer to make the Marine Rose Program a success. When and where ever you see Marine Corps Leaguers or Young Marines distributing these remembrances people take and wear them proudly.

Uniformed members of the Marine Corps League (MCL) purchase small pin-like ‘Roses’ from MCL National Headquarters. Then they coordinate with local businesses or organizations to set-up a table or booth at their location(s); and in no way obstruct any entrances or exits, as tables/chairs are off to side areas. While there a container is used for collecting donations as a ‘Rose’ is picked-up; and no verbal solicitations are made. Prior to such events, MCL Detachments typically advertise what the Marine Rose Program is for and what the donations will be used for. 100% of the donations received are used for the purposes stated above! The donated funds received through the Rose Program are not used for MCL Detachments' "general fund", or to fund Detachment parties, cook-outs, U.S.M.C. Birthday Balls, etc.
