MEMBERSHIP BENEFITS. The obvious benefit of membership in the Marine Corps League Smoky Mountain Detachment is to enjoy the camaraderie that we who are Marines share. More importantly, as Marines we were taught from day-one to seek leadership responsibilities. As members of the Smoky Mountain Detachment we demonstrate our commitment to that principal through self-example in our local community, and by supporting our fellow Marines and worthwhile activities within the Smoky Mountain area.
