MODD PACK OF INDIANA
MODD Pack of Indiana Mascot
We are the Fun and Honor Society of the Marine Corps League.
Unlike some other organizations, all members of the Military Order of the Devil Dogs are created equal. Only Regulars members in good standing in the Marine Corps League, with one continuous year may be “asked” to apply for membership. The success of the Pound is up to its membership and especially up to its leadership. The Kennel and the Pack will help, but they will not do the work for the Pound nor can they guarantee its success.
LEARNING ABOUT THE DEVIL DOGS
The rules and regulations of the Military Order of the Devil Dogs are contained in the By-Laws and Ritual. Members should become familiar with each publication but should not try to absorb everything at once. The By-Laws contain the basic rules. The Ritual has further details and tells how to conduct Growls and other ceremonial functions of the Pound. Keep in mind, we are here to have FUN! Keep business light and the enjoyment of the members heavy.
WHAT IT DOES
It promotes good fellowship amongst the members of the Marine Corps League Detachments.
The Order provides amusement and entertainment at all the gatherings of the League, when and where advisable, preserves and strengthens the principals and ideas of the League and maintains true allegiance to the United States of America and its Constitution and laws. It fosters and extents American institutions of freedom and defends America against all enemies.
The Order is also very active in raising funds for different charities.
You must be a paid-up member and in good standing in the Marine Corps League, Inc. The applicant must be active in his or her Detachment in the League, and must be invited to join the Order. He or she must be recommended by his or her Detachment Commandant and be sponsored by two DEVIL DOGS or PEDIGREED DEVIL DOGS. The applicant is then interviewed by the members of the Pound at a Pound Growl. (A meeting is called a Growl.) If accepted, the applicant must undergo an initiation and obligation ceremony. Then he or she becomes a Pup in the order.
The Pound is on the local level and is usually made up of members of different Marine Corps League Detachments. On the State level there is a Pack, and on the National level there is the Kennel. There are three different degrees in the Order. The lowest degree is that of a Pup. The next highest level is that of a Devil Dog. The highest level is that of a Pedigreed Devil Dog. All Dogs wear a dog collar (ribbon) around their neck with a Dog Tag attached. A Pup wears a black ribbon. A Devil Dog wears a red ribbon. A Pedigreed Devil Dog wears a gold ribbon. The head of the Pound is called the “Pound Keeper”. The head of the Pack is called e “Pack Leader” The head of the Kennel is called “Chief Devil Dog”. The Order’s many charitable donations not only help people, but also build good public relations for the Order, the League and the United States Marine Corps. It is an honor and a privilege to be a Devil Dog.
"We are the Fun and Honor Society of the Marine Corps League. We are only interested in quality membership, not quantity membership."
