NH Marines start own website

MANCHESTER - The Granite State detachment of the Marine Corps League recently launched its own website.

The local Marines acquired the domain name and developed a website to spotlight membership opportunities, showcase veterans' initiatives and other community activities its Marines support.

According to Junior Vice Commandant Bruce Katz, the need for an online presence is necessary to support the current detachment plans and long-term goals.

"Our Marines participate in a variety of veteran-related activities in the greater Manchester area. Without members and our fundraising efforts, it would be impossible to support the requests for services and support we receive from other organizations," the retired Marine said.

One of the primary missions of the website is to serve as a virtual recruiting office for the Granite State detachment, which boasts a membership of nearly 50 Marines. In the past, the detachment has relied on networking, word of mouth advertising and the national MCL and state websites to reach out and attract qualified individuals for membership.

"In order for the detachment to continue to provide support for Veterans' Day events, Memorial Day events and the other veteran-specific activities, we need to grow our membership in order to have the manpower and flexibility to answer the large number of requests we receive," said Katz, a former Marine recruiter.

Marines, young and old are encouraged to visit the website or e-mail for additional information on the detachment and membership criteria.
