Loyal Escorts of the Green Garter (LE's), a 501(c)3 non-profit organization, is the auxiliary of the Women Marines Association. The purpose of the Loyal Escorts of the Green Garter, is to assist the Women Marines Association and to perform educational and charitable works within their communities. Since 1972 we have supported WMA in reaching its national goals in many ways. We contribute an annual scholarship to further the educational goal; we sponsor and present awards to chapters for noteworthy accomplishments at each convention, thereby promoting the seven purposes as spelled out in the WMA Bylaws. Members are pledged to "aid, assist and escort WMA members in the performance of their duties as delegates to the Women Marines Association convention and other WMA functions". The Loyal Escorts of the Green Garter meet biennially in conjunction with the WMA national convention at the place designated as the WMA convention site. Members attending the convention register as "Loyal Escorts of the Green Garter delegates", by presenting a current membership card as credentials and by participation in the general meetings at which all society business is transacted.
The Loyal Escorts of the Green Garter are looking for new ways to raise funds in order to support our worldly good toward Veterans. Feel free to submit any and all ideas to us. Normally we find ways to raise funds during the WMA Biennial Convention. With the increasing need for Electronic Communications, and a better platform to better serve our members, we would like to raise additional funds in the times we are away from Convention.
The Loyal Escorts work along with WMA members on charitable chapter activities and within their communities.
Some of the programs we are proud to have done in the past, and are looking forward to doing in the future include:
