In October of the year 2000, a group of Marines gathered together for the purpose of starting a new Detachment in the Department of Texas, Marine Corps League.

In December of 2000, the required documents to start a Detachment were submitted to the Marine Corps League National Headquarters and to the State of Texas. On 16 January 2001, the Charter for the Longhorn Detachment was signed into effect by then Commandant, Marine Corps League, Diane Dils. The Longhorn Detachment #1069 received it's Charter from Department of Texas Commandant AR "Al" Kotrla Jr on 19 January 2001.

Even before the Longhorn Detachment received it Charter, the members agreed that the Longhorn Detachment would be a community service organization and follow the Mission Statement of the Marine Corps League.

To this date, the Longhorn Detachment, and it's members, have honored the Mission Statement with integrity and have upheld the principles upon which it was founded.

The name Longhorn was suggested as the name of the newly forming Detachment because of the historic site which our meetings were held, and because of the closeness to Fort Worth. The early meeting site was held on the feeding grounds of the Chisholm Trail where the cattle drivers grazed their cattle before driving them into the Fort Worth Stockyards. The name Longhorn is also symbolic of the Great State of Texas
