For you younger Marines out there......

What are your reasons for not joining the Marine Corps League?

I had a discussion with a younger Marine recently and he told me he feels most Veteran organizations are comprised of old guys that want to dress up in a uniform and play "Soldier".

It got me to thinking about what was my feelings about it after I left active duty. I guess I felt about the same! I was a late bloomer joining Veteran groups. Although I always was proud to be able to call myself a "Marine", I didn't feel comfortable going to a VFW or American Legion hall where most members were a lot older than me.
