Marine Corps League of Naples
E.T. Brisson Detachment #063, Naples, FL

Marine Rose Program
In 1778, during the War of Independence, the Marine Corps ROSE was dedicated to those Marines who made the ultimate sacrifice for their country.  This tradition continued by the French during WWI, when the Marines attacked the Germans in the trenches at Bella Wood.  Roses were planted by the grateful French people at the graves of the fallen Marines.

Started by U.S. Marine Eddie Gallagher from New York, The Marine Rose Program was designed to parallel the VFW "Poppy" program to provide funds for Marine Corps League Detachments to assist veterans and youth and provide miscellaneous other services 
to the community.

The funds raised from the ET Brisson Marine Rose Program benefit Detachment Programs, such as:
~Marines Helping Marines 
~New Beginnings School Mentor Program
~Detachment Scholarship Program
~Detachment Eagle Scout/Good Citizenship Program

ET Brisson Members proudly volunteer to make the Marine Rose Program a success. 
When and where ever you see Marine Corps Leaguers distributing these remembrances, please take a rose and wear it proudly.
