The First Capitol Detachment of the Marine Corps League is based in York, PA. We are a unit of a national veterans service organization first chartered in 1937. We have supported our Marines and accompanying Naval personnel, their families, and our local community since our local incorporation in 1982. We invite you to our meetings on the 2nd Wednesday of each month at Shiloh American Legion Post #791 at 1490 Poplars Road, York (beginning at 7:30 pm).
Our next meeting is scheduled for Wednesday, December 13. You may access the meeting room directly from the upper parking lot.
