The Semper Fidelis Society is an association of Marines whose purpose is to maintain the camaraderie, espirit-de-corps and sense of purpose that identifies us as United States Marines. We believe that the Marine Corps values of honor, courage and commitment, coupled with the historical tenacity of Marines to accomplish their mission are traits that are worthy of respect and emulation. In the interest of Marines taking care of Marines and sharing our values within our community, we will provide a forum/fraternity of Marines that will foster an atmosphere of friendship and cooperation with the intent of providing a network of Marines who will work towards the goal of Marines taking care of Marines and establishing a set of connections that can benefit Marines, Navy FMF Corpsmen and their families.
Ensure that Marines and Navy FMF Corpsmen are respected and recognized for their services, always receive their benefits and entitlements; are recognized for the sacrifices they and their families made on behalf of this nation.
Thank you for considering Semper Fidelis Society of Jacksonville for a charitable contribution. All Officers and board members are non-compensated volunteers, so all of our money goes right back into supporting our mission. Our largest expenses as an organization include the annual Gung Ho Awards, Annual Marine and FMF Corpsmen Memorial, Annual Leadership Awards to NJROTC Units and website maintenance/organizing.
