History of the Women Marines Association

The Women Marines Association was formed in 1960. It is the only association of women Marines. It is a non-profit, non-political veterans association. The purpose and by-laws of the association were set, and the first national officers were elected at the first national "reunion", held in Denver, Colorado. The first chapter to be formed was the Washington, D.C. chapter in 1962. In 1964 six additional chapters were created, and from that time forth, our chapters continue to grow. WMA has chapters in almost every state of the Union. The association has grown from a small group of former women Marines to over 3,000 members.

Our goal is to see the Molly Marine Chapter reestablished in New Orleans to serve the women Marines and veterans of Lousiana and Mississippi.  Membership is open to women who serve or have served honorably in the U. S. Marine Corps or the U. S. Marine Corps Reserve from 1918 to the present.
