I believe a few of you still remember my dad, former Gunny Paul W. Ryan.  I have wonderful memories of the picnics and Christmas parties I attended as a child at the League headquarters.  Anyway, I am currently working with a group of Islanders who are organizing a barbecue for veterans and their families.  The date is September 14, 2019 and the place is the grounds of Christ Church, 76 Franklin Avenue, Staten Island.  It’s a free event for the vets and their families and I do hope many of you will join us.  There will be plenty of food, fun and entertainment.  In addition, we will be putting together packages for those men and women currently serving overseas protecting our freedoms.  RSVP by September 1, 2019 by emailing Veteransbbq2019@gmail.com.  Be sure to include how many family members will be attending.  This is a handicap accessible event.  Thanks again and Semper Fi.

Thanks to all our members who participated in the Memorial Day activities, especially those who put forth the effort to make sure everything was ready before and squared away after.

Happy Birthday Marines!

I am writing to see if there is a possibility of arranging some sort of contact with a friend of mine who is a Marine vet who is on the mend from a recent operation and will miss a Marine Corps birthday celebration for the first time in 49 years. 
He lives on Staten Island and generally celebrates with other Marines.  I just learned from his wife that he was not able to make it to that celebration as they have had their celebration already and they recommended that I contact the local Marine Corps League.
Happy to discuss the details via email if possible.

Are you referring to Frank Macardi ?


Frank was visited by several officers from the MCL#246.

Thank you for your concern.

This was for another individual and I wanted to say a most sincere thanks.

The Staten Island Marine Corps League came through above and beyond the call responding quickly and visiting my friend and sharing comradery yesterday!

He and his wife were extremely moved and appreciative.

Thank you all!
