The individual items that make up the Basic Uniform for regular and associate members are illustrated below.  The LCPL Shane L. Goldman Detachment wears a unisex cover.

A. The basic uniform of the Marine Corps League is the cover.  All other parts of the uniform are optional, the cover remains as the only consistent identifier for Marine Corps League members, which is why the cover is worn indoors at appropriate Marine Corps League functions.  When Marine Corps League Members are wearing the appropriate cover, as listed below, they are considered to be in uniform.  NO OTHER TYPE OF COVER MAY BE WORN AT A  MARINE CORPS LEAGUE FUNCTION OR MEETING. 


B. All members of the Marine Corps League are authorized to wear the RED COVER.

C. The only insignia authorized for wear on the Marine Corps League Covers is the 1-1/2" X 1-1/2" Anodized Solid Gold Color or Polished Brass Marine Corps Emblem (Enlisted Style Only) on the Left Side.  The Devil Dog patch, if authorized, will be worn up front on the right side of the cover.  The identification strips, i.e., Department or Detachment strip, or embroidering, will be centered on the right side.  If the "LIFE" strip is worn, it will be to the rear of the right side.  The "LIFE MEMBER" strip will be worn the same as the identification strips are worn, and should be worn above other strips.
