The United States Marine Corps only selects the best and the brightest to join its ranks, just like the players selected for the Semper Fidelis All-American Bowl. The Marine Corps partners with a third-party recruiting professional to select elite high-school athletes for the Semper Fidelis All-American Bowl. In addition to being among the top-rated football players in the nation, the selection process is also dedicated to choosing players

Semper Fidelis All American Bowl


Contributing sponsors for the Congressional Gold Medal Bronze Replicas

MCA&F recognizes Marine excellence in a wide range of endeavors and in particular supports the development of critical thinking in military affairs. MCA&F sponsors several types of writing awards to encourage Marines to disseminate ideas and explore issues to improve the Corps.

Tawani Foundation’s vision is to affect significant transformation of organizations and educational programs that enrich knowledge, preserve military heritage, improve health and wellness and conserve unique sites for enduring positive impact on individuals, communities and societies.

OUR MISSION:  To encourage the spiritual, moral, intellectual and physical development of children through education. This Foundation was formed in February of 1995 by former Marines and law enforcement personnel who strongly believe that our nation's most precious resource is its youth.

Marine FCU was chartered in April of 1959. Our humble beginnings … a chicken-wired area in one of the warehouses aboard Marine Corps Base Camp Lejeune, North Carolina. Under the watchful eye of our volunteer Board of Directors, we have grown to be a large, full service institution dedicated to the financial success of our members and a proud civic partner in our community. You can count on us!


** Monument Contribution **

The Marine Corps Veterans Association serves Marines current and past, those who survived and those who did not, those still injured and those doing well. We look out for our Marines, and we remind all Americans to honor the awesome sacrifices Marines made for them. This Association has made a charitable contribution towards the MPMA Memorial Fund.
