To clear up some confusion about the Military Order of Devil Dogs

What it is:
The Military Order of Devil Dogs is the fun and honor society of the Marine Corps League.

What it does:
It promotes good fellowship amongst the members of different Marine Corps League Detachments. The Order provides amusement and entertainment at all gatherings of the League, when and where advisable. It assists in the accomplishment of all programs and objectives of the League, preserves and strengthens the principles and ideals of the League, and maintains true allegiance to the United States of America and its Constitution and laws. It fosters and extends American institutions of freedom and defends America against all enemies whatsoever. The Order is also VERY active in raising funds for different charities.

Who Belongs:
The Military Order of Devil Dogs is made up only of members of the Marine Corps League. The Order only accepts the most worthy of League members.

How to Join:
You must be a paid-up member in good standing in the Marine Corps League. The applicant must be active in his/her Detachment in the League, and must request membership in the Order. He or she must be recommended by the Detachment Commandant and be sponsored by two Devil Dogs or Pedigreed Devil Dogs.

Organization:
The Pound is on a local level and is usually made up of members of different Marine Corps League Detachments. On the State level there is the Pack, and on the National level there is a Kennel. There are three different degrees in the Order. The lowest degree is that of Pup. The next degree is that of Devil Dog. The highest degree is that of Pedigreed Devil Dog. The Pup wears a black ribbon, the Devil Dog wears a red ribbon, and the Pedigreed Devil Dog wears a gold ribbon. The ribbon is worn around the neck and a Dog Tag is attached to it.

The head of the Pound is called the Poundkeeper. The head of the pack is the Pack Leader. The head of the Kennel is also the head of all Devil Dogs and is called Chief Devil Dog.

The Order's many charitable donations not only help people in need, but also build good public relations for the Order, the League, and the United States Marine Corps.

The Military Order of Devil Dogs is often called the fun part of the Marine Corps League. Their Pound and Pack meetings often mimic a Marine Mess Night to a point.

One correction. You must be invited to become a member of the MODD based on your exceptional service and involvement in the League. You may then be recommended by your Detachment Commandant.

It Is An Honor To Be A DevilDog
