that Bridges Generations
It is an honor to become a Marine, and it requires an exceptional woman Marine to take on and lead this challenge. That experience unites us for life and inspires us to work hard to leave our mark on the world. WMA works tirelessly to support military personnel, veterans, and our communities through a nationwide, chapter-based organization of women Marines.
About Our Organization
Our Legacy Will Live On
Since 1960, the Women Marines Association has proudly reflected our great Marine Corps heritage and history and will continue to do so for many generations to come.
The WMA is a 501(c)(3) non-profit charitable organization comprised of women who have served or are serving honorably in the United States Marine Corps regular or reserve components.
Since 1918, Marine Corps women have answered their country’s call to serve. We have served proudly with distinction and honor, each generation evolving and always retaining our proud traditions.
Shaping the World
An integral part of our organization’s goal is to share the stories of these women and their accomplishments in shaping the world. Learn more about how women Marines have served with honor for over 100 years.
