Commandant Fred E Pedone
First, I would like to thank the members of the Pfc. Jerry L McKinney Detachment 1232 for the honor they have bestowed on me to serve as your Commandant. My guiding principle during my tenure will be service above self. I will strive to offer the best service I can give, to my beloved Marine Corps, Marine Corps League, their families & our community. To achieve this goal, my vision is to increase our membership, reach out to the families, the community, our active duty Marines and FMF Corpsmen. Together we can create an environment that promotes service above self, while maintaining our standards and traditions bestowed on us by our brothers and sisters past, present and future.
Members of the Pfc Jerry L. McKinney Detachment join in camaraderie and
fellowship for the purpose of preserving the traditions and interests
of the United States Marine Corps. We band together those who are now
serving in the United States Marine Corps with those who have been
honorably discharged from our glorious corps. We strive to effectively
promote the ideals of American freedom endowed upon us by our creator.
We voluntarily aid and render assistance to all Marines, FMF Corpsmen,
to their widows and orphans. We perpetuate the history of the United
States Marine Corps by offering fitting acts in observance on the
anniversaries of historical occasions with particular interest to
