A question for League members out there....

What do you think about the new application requesting Social Security numbers of Marines joining the League? To top that off, they want you to send that application to them with the Transmittal bringing that Marine into the league! I suspect many people afraid of identity theft will be turned off by that requirement.

I've already gotten a lot of negative opinions about it from a number of members in our detachment. From what I understand, any Marine or FMF Corpsman that fails to provide a Social Security number will only be allowed to join the League as an Associate Member.

I'm trying to get an answer from National to see if we will have to use their 2013 Copyright Membership Application to include with Transmittals. I've altered our detachment application to comply with the National Bylaws and would rather use it as it has our detachment address and a few other things exclusive to our detachment.

A number of our present members have told me they wouldn't have joined the League if we insisted on providing their Social Security number to join as a regular member.

So the Marine Corp League is buying into the Big brother move. The data bases are everywhere. I am 100% against this. How can we protest to the right people?
