From the Commandant

April 15, 2019

Hello! My name is Robert Hamady and I am the newly elected Commandant of the Hobart Marine Corps League. I accept this position with Honor, Courage and Humility. I would like to introduce myself via my biographical background.

I graduated from East Gary Edison High School in 1959.   On June 14th, 1959  I entered the Marine Corps. After graduation from MCRD, I was assigned to the 3rd Battalion, 5th Marines and my last two years with the 2nd Battalion, 9th Marines. I served two years on Okinawa with BLT's 3/5 and 2/9. I was honorably released from active duty on June 17, 1963.  I attained the rank of Corporal E-4.

I am a graduate of St. Joseph's Calumet College with a BS degree in Business Management in 1973. I also, have received a one-year certificate in Law Enforcement Science from St. Joseph's College.

I am retired Law Enforcement Officer having served with the Gary and Merrillville Police Department. I worked various police assignments and retired from the Merrillville Police Department in 1996 with 26 years -service as a Lieutenant.

In 1995 I was appointed the Executive Director of the Northwest Indiana Law Enforcement Academy. I served in that position until 2000.

I am a Purdue Master Gardener, I enjoy woodworking, gardening, and listening to old time radio programs. I am a "Die heart" Cubs fan since 1976.

I am an active member of the Carpathia Russian Orthodox Church, Descent of the Holy Spirit Orthodox Church in Schererville.

It is with great pride and Marine Spirit that I assume this role of Commandant. I hope to inspire my fellow leaguers to make a DIFFERENCE in promoting the very best of the Marine Corps League's traditions, promote the interest, and perpetuate the history of the United State Marine Corps.

I look forward to meeting all Marines and hope they will be considering joining our Detachment.

Once a Marine, Always a Marine!

Semper Fi,
