The Capital Detachment #148 is the premier Marine Corps organization in the Lansing, Michigan area.

Members of the Marine Corps League join together in camaraderie and fellowship for the purpose of preserving the traditions and promoting the interests of the United States Marine Corps, banding together those who are now serving in the United States Marine Corps and those who have been honorably discharged from that service that they may effectively promote the ideals of American freedom and democracy, voluntarily aiding and rendering assistance to all Marines, FMF Corpsmen and former Marines and FMF Corpsmen and to their widows and orphans; and to perpetuate the history of the United States Marine Corps and by fitting acts to observe the anniversaries of historical occasions of particular interest to Marines.


In the Lansing area the Capital Detachment is involved with the Toys for Tots program through Charlie Company 1st Bn. 24th Marine Regiment, We fundraise and donate to the Ann Arbor & Battle Creek VA Centers, Grand Rapids Home for Veterans and the VFW National Childrens Home.

Every November 10th the detachment hosts the Lansing Area Marine Corps Birthday at VFW Post #701 at 123 N. Rosemary Ave., Lansing, MI 48915, so come out and join us for the celebration of the birth of our Corps.


If you would like to be involved with fundraising, Legistlative affairs, public relations, Veterans issues, rifle competitions or just plain hanging out with Marine veterans at different events.


Come out and join us at the VFW on the 4th Thursday of the month and see what we are about and then join us.
