Our Purpose ? Marines of the Palouse exists to provide support and service to all Marines past and present. We facilitate recreational therapy programs and are continuously reaching out to other veteran organizations to extend our reach. We also put on an annual Marine Corps Birthday Ball celebration that is open to the public. It is our main fundraiser and allows the public to experience a traditional Marine Corps Birthday ball ceremony. We served our country and our communities and now we want to make sure that we did it for a reason. We want to make sure that our brothers and sisters are serving for a reason. We want to make sure when our brothers and sisters return home, they have acceptance.
History The Marines of the Palouse was formed in the Spring of 2012. Ted Owens, Matt Decker, Brady Anderson and Mack Anderson are all originally from Moscow, Idaho. We all graduated from Moscow High School within a few years of each other and we all joined the Marine Corps within a short span as well. We have made some great additions to our group in Earl Aldrich, Tracy Young, Josh Steadman, Jefferson Griffith and Ryan Svoboda and we continue to add 'Hard Chargers' monthly. The reason Marines of the Palouse was formed was that there was no Marine Corps Ball and we wanted to celebrate our birthday in the traditional manner. We then incorporated with a 501c3, and decided to create a non-profit organization. The reason for the non-profit status was to raise money for a scholarship fund for needy veterans and to find ways to give back to the community we love so much! As Marine veterans we are also striving to provide veterans with assistance. With an increasing number of PTSD and TBI cases coming back home, we are looking to provide an outlet and even outdoor therapy to try and help out our comrades. We are currently reaching out to outdoor guiding companies to help provide rafting, fishing and hunting trips and are looking to organize mountain biking day trips so there is an opportunity to enjoy the beautiful scenery of the Palouse Region.
