Pound Frequently Asked Questions


What is the Military Order of the Devil Dogs (MODD)?


The MODD, the FUN and HONOR SOCIETY of the Marine Corps League (MCL), is comprised of only regular members of the League who have been recommended for membership by 2 members of the Order. Each member undergoes a series of initiations.  First, as a Pup, in their Pound (the local organization, the basis of the Order); then, as a DevilDog in their Pack (the State organization which meets during a Department Convention); and, finally, as a Pedigreed Devil Dog at the SUPREME GROWL held in conjunction with the National Convention of the League. Each degree must be held for one full year before candidacy for the next degree may be considered.


Why would I want to accept an inviation to join the MODD?


The Order promotes good fellowship amongst the members of the different MCL Detachments. It provides amusement and entertainment at all gatherings of the League, when and where advisable, preserves and strengthens the principles and ideals of the League, and maintains true allegiance to the United States of America and its Constitution and laws.  The Order fosters and extends American institutions of freedom and defends America against all enemies whatsoever, and is very active in raising funds for different charities.
