Because of their courageous fighting and battlefield accomplishments, United States Marines were given the name “Devil Dogs” (Teufel Hunden) in WWI by enemy troops they engaged in combat. The Devil Pups name is derived from this Marine Corps History.


In 1954, a group of retired Marine Corps Reserve Officers asked the Commandant of the Marine Corps to help with a community benefit project that would aid the development of character qualities in teenagers and enable them to become healthier, successful and more focused young citizens. The Commandant gave his full support to this program.

Under the guidance of Major General John T. Selden, USMC, the Devil Pups Youth Development Citizenship Program was started at the Marine Corps Base, Camp Pendleton, 80 miles south of Los Angeles, in 1954.
