Hi, my name is Mike Bellard . . .

Mike MCL

I am your host and webmaster for The Scarlet and Gold Business Directory.  Before I tell you about my website, allow me to tell you a little about myself.

Since 1998, I have had the honor and privilege to be an Associate (non-veteran) Member of the Marine Corps League, where I currently serve on both the state and local level as an appointed officer, and serve on various committees.  I am also an Approved Mentor with the “Marine for Life Program” which assists Marines as they transition to civilian life.  During this time, I have developed a strong bond with the Marine Corps Veterans and FMF Corpsmen in the League.

While attending the 2011 Marine Corps League National Convention, I learned of the need for a directory of businesses which are owned or operated by members in the League.  That is when I started planning this website.  When I returned home, I continued to talk with other Marines about my project. 

I soon realized that this directory should be for all Marines, FMF Corpsmen, their families, and members of Marine Corps Veterans' Organizations, who own or manage a business.  This way my website can serve the whole Marine Corps community.

As a result of these efforts, I am now the webmaster for two veterans business directories: The Scarlet And Gold Business Directory which is for Marine Corps Veterans, FMF Corpsman, their families, and members of Marine Corps Veterans' Organizations. And the Veterans Business List a Veterans Business Directory that is open to all veterans and their families.

Now that you know how this website came to be, I invite you to take some time to explore it.  There will soon be pages for each state, with additional pages as needed, for metropolitan areas like Phoenix, Arizona.  I also have web pages for Frequently Asked Questions, my Privacy Policy, and contact information.

I hope you enjoy The Scarlet and Gold Business Directory.  If you or a member of your family is part of the Marine Corps community and has or runs a business, then I invite you to include your business card ad in this directory.

To start the process, go to the “Start Here” page and download your Order Form.  

If you do not own or operate a business, then I ask you to recommend another Marine who does, to become a part of Scarlet and Gold Business Directory.  When they place their ad in the directory, you will receive a discount coupon from one of the businesses in the directory as my way of thanking you for helping the directory to grow.

When you are referring a Marine, FMF Corpsmen, a member of their family or a member of a Marine Corps Veterans' Organization to the Scarlet and Gold Business Directory, then you can download the information you will want them to have right here: Scarlet and Gold Business Directory.pdf

Thank you for visiting my website and …

Semper Fi!
