Christmas Stockings for Deployed Troops
The Broomfield detachment is dedicated to helping out active duty and veteran Marines, Sailors, Soldiers and Airmen. In 2018, we filled and shipped out over 2,000 Christmas stockings to deployed troops all over the world. These stockings were loaded with essential items such as dental care products, toiletries, snack items and other things not typically available to troops in the field or underway at sea.
VA Popcorn Sales
Our detachment participates in popcorn sales several time each month. This tales place at the VA Hospital in Aurora (1700 N Wheeling ST
Aurora, CO 80045) and the VA Medical Center in Golden (1020 Johnson Rd, Golden, CO 80401). All proceeds from popcorn sales benefit Hospitalized Veterans, Inc., a non-profit that helps out hospitalized veterans and their families.
The Broomfield Detachment is very active in parades up and down the Front Range. Our two floats, the Iwo Jima float (manned by Young Marines in WW2 uniforms) and the Tomb of the Unknown Soldier are big hits with the crowds. We've appeared in the St. Patrick's Day Parade, and multiple parades on Memorial Day and Independence Day, as well as parades in Broomfield and Arvada, among others.
