The Eugene Sara Detachment of the Marine Corps League is a non-profit organization that does many things in the Yellowstone County area to connect with and help Marines and their families. Our primary activities include an annual fund raiser for the Wounded Warriors – the proceeds going to the Marine Corps Wounded Warriors Regiment at either Camp Pendleton or Quantico. We also help the Active Duty Command raise money for the annual Marine Corps Birthday ball and collect names of marines that are interested in invitations to the ball. Another annual activity is to work with the Active Duty Command to collect toys and donations for the Toys for Tots program. In 2017 they collected enough toys/donations to provide toys for over 10,000 families in Yellowstone County. We also support a squad in Roundup, MT. One other annual event for the past few years has been replacing headstones at the Riverside Cemetary in the Billings Heights.
The Eugene Sara Detachment also provides color guards for many events and funerals in the area. We also provide shooting teams for funerals of Marines in the county.
