Our mission is:

(c) To fit its members for duties of citizenship and to encourage them to serve as ably as citizens as they have served the Nation under arms;
(d) To hold sacred the history and memory of the men and women who have given their lives to the Nation;
(e) To foster love for the principals which they have supported by blood and valor since the founding of the Republic;
(f) To maintain true allegiance to American institutions;
(g) To create a bond of comradeship between those serving and those who have returned to civilian life;
(h) To aid voluntarily and to render assistance to all Marines and former Marines as well as to their spouses, orphans and parent(s).
(i) To perpetuate the history of the United States Marine Corps, and by fitting acts to observe the anniversaries of historical occasions of particular interest to Marines.
The members of our Detachment proudly fulfill this mission in the Brazos Valley by providing benevolence to Marines or FMF Corpsmen in need, and by actively participating in fundraisers, scholarship presentations, Marine recruitment activities, Marine officer commissioning ceremonies, parades, children's hospital visits, toy drives, veteran quality of life town halls, and Wreaths Across America events. We are even honored to be able to support Fallen Marine ceremonies.
