Often, people outside the Marine Corps League have a dramatic impact on the success of its endeavors.

Gailon Fletcher is one such person.

Fletcher is a retired Air Force officer who is active in the community's veterans' organizations including the Disabled American Veterans and the Veterans of Foreign Wars along with its honor degree, the Military Order of the Cootie. He has held many offices in the VFW and Cooties, but he is involved in every aspect of the mission. For the VFW he assists in weekly dances, district meetings, and when needed is an accomplished Bar-B-Que chef.

When the Pineywoods Detachment needed a fundraiser, Fletcher smoked more brisket than was needed. In 2007, when the Marine Corps Birthday Ball caterer cancelled at the last minute, he once again stepped in without hesitation and provided smoked brisket and ham, which helped make the evening a success.

For his unswerving dedication to the area's veterans and to the Pineywoods Detachment, we proudly present to Gailon Fletcher an Honorary Membership in the Marine Corps League.
