The McLemore Detachment
is participating in the Fallen Marine Program. The purpose of
this program is to honor Fallen Marines and offer our condolences
to the family. The program includes a salute to the Fallen Marine
and presentation of a certificate or condolence card.
We will attend, at
the families convenience, the funeral service, memorial service,
the wake, or the internment to present the certificate and, if
appropriate, we will conduct the flag presentation ceremony.
The certificate presentation ceremony takes about 5 minutes and
is conducted by members of the McLemore Detachment of the Marine
Corps League. If we cannot attend we will send the certificate
or condolence card.
To be eligible for
this presentation the Fallen Marine must be currently in The
United States Marine Corps or honorably discharged from The United
States Marine Corps.

the availability of this program, for a Fallen Marine please
