All of the Officers, elected and appointed, and all the Chairpersons and Liaisons working together have made the Chester County Detachment a dynamic organization that continues to grow and prosper to serve Marines, Veterans, and their families and the Community while promoting camaraderie and patriotism. I cannot give enough praise and thanks to this team for giving me their support and trust while giving freely of their time and effort. Please volunteer your time and talent to help them continue their mission. As always, keep the troops in harms way in your prayers, and be ready to help them when they come home.
