Marine Korean War Veterans continue to serve

Members of the Marine Corps League Detachment 565 share a laugh during the monthly meeting, Nov. 16, 2012. The meetings take place in an old firehouse built in 1901 they bought from the City of Baltimore more than 20 years ago. During monthly meetings, members talk about awards and funding for their support programs such as Food for Needy, Raven’s Roost, and the Francis Scott Key Elementary/Middle School scholarship program.
