The Corps is in the midst of a historic effort to redesign the force to meet the challenges of this new age of great power competition.
MCDP7 is placing a strong emphasis on education and philosophy.
The Marine Corps Association & Foundation is the professional organization of the United States Marine Corps, founded more than 100 years ago by General John A. Lejeune. MCA&F is a member based organization dedicated to professional development, recognition of excellence, and building awareness of the rich traditions, history and esprit of the United States Marine Corps. Our non-profit arm, the Marine Corps Association Foundation, supports Marines through four programs which provide unit libraries, commanders’ forum events and professional military education trips to Marines throughout the world.
Members of the Marine Corps Association & Foundation receive reduced rates to our professional events and member exclusive promotions at The Marine Shop. Our members also receive a choice of one or both of our publications, Leatherneck – Magazine of the Marines and The Marine Corps Gazette, in print and digital format.
The Marine Corps Association Foundation was founded in 2009 to help develop leaders by providing forums for Marines to develop professionally, exchange ideas and preserve the traditions of the Corps. Learn more about our programs supporting today’s Marines.
