Serving Marines and friends in Alachua County

The Gator Detachment is made up primarily of Marine veterans and friends.  We formed in Alachua County in 1998.  Our members are from Gainesville, Alachua, Archer, High Springs, Keystone Heights, Hawthorne and other surrounding towns.  Our members were Marines and Corpsmen of WWII, Korea, Vietnam, Desert Storm, Iraqi Freedom, as well as peacetime Marines.  We are men and women. We were grunts, logistics, artillery, admin, supply, operations, cooks and many other MOS's, but we were all riflemen and Marines. We now exist to serve not only as a group where Marines of all eras bond together, but unite in efforts to do things for our community.  Joined with us are men and women who were not Marines but choose to serve beside us, helping us in our missions.  Check us out.

2024 elections held

The annual election of officers was held at the February General Meeting.  Elected were Matt Yakubsin (Commandant), Gary Van Cleef (Senior Vice Commandant), Bryan Chrisp (Junior Vice Commandant) and John Murdoch (Judge Advocate.)  The elected officers were installed into office.
