Detachment #1481 honors its namesake

Detachment #1481 was named in honor of George C Leber.  

On June 6, 2024, the detachment along with Leber’s two sons, Junior Past Commandant of #1481, Richard “Bear“ Leber and his brother Don Leber were able to honor his service to our country and recognize him as a veteran of the United States Marine Corps by permanently placing an Eagle, Globe & Anchor and a George C Leber Detachment #1481 challenge coin on his headstone.

We would like to thank the Emerald Empire, Marine Corps League Detachment #917 for joining us to honor this highly decorated Marine.
