Detachment 260 of the Marine Corps League was founded in September 1972 by 32 charter members. The founding Commandant was Bill Moss who, to this day, still actively serves as an advisor to the current staff and members.

In 2005 the detachment was nicknamed "The Fighting 260" reason being the 260 has members who have served in every conflict that the Marines have participated in since WWII. We have members who served in every conflict of WWII, Korea, Vietnam, The Gulf and most all expeditionary missions of the Corps.

Today the 260 is experiencing continued growth. Most of our success is due to the many members that band together to not only help each other but work together to help the community through the many successful programs we promote.

"Once a Marine always a Marine" is a standard we all know is true!
