Our Marine Corps League Detachment #1263 has an outstanding member by the name of Bill Crider. He has dreamed his whole life of being a marine. He is now 77 years old and tried to enlist in the Corps in 1949. He has had a almost total hearing loss since his youth and for this reason, was denied. He did serve in the Civil Air Patrol for 5 years. Bill’s dream of being a Marine has been filled with his membership as an associate member in our detachment. Bill wears the complete uniform with great pride, volunteers for everything and works tirelessly for the good of our organization.
