13 February 2022 - 79th Anniversary of Women Marines

On 13 February 1943, the Marine Corps officially established the Marine Corps Women’s Reserve. Commandant General Thomas Holcomb—who had originally been against the formation of a women’s reserve unit—decided that they didn’t need a nickname because being trained as Marines, they are Marines.

Located in the Eugene/Springfield area of the Willamette Valley, Chapter OR-3 was organized 1 November 1980 and chartered 15 April 1981.  We primarily serve Lane, Linn, Benton, and Douglas counties but all Women Marines are welcome.

When:  3rd Saturday of each month (except June, July & August)
