Featured TMP Participant:
Stephanie Longdo
"My name is Steph and I am a Medical Laboratory Scientist, where I have a particular interest in Toxicology. Outside of work, I enjoy participating in any type of fitness activity...except running. Running just isn’t my thing. I have completed a few half-marathons out of sheer will, but never attempted a marathon. To my surprise, when one of my bootcamp coaches suggested the MCM to me, I didn’t say no. I thought about the idea for a few days and realized if the suggestion was made, it meant my coach believed I could do this. So here I am!"

Marine Corps Reserves: Education
The Marine Corps Reserve is an important component that can be mobilized for active duty in time of war, national emergency, or contingency operations. Marine reservists have fought alongside their active duty brothers and sisters regularly since World War I.

After the Corps: Housing
After the Corps™ is dedicated to providing accurate, up-to-date information on how VA home loans work.

There are a number of different home loan options available to veterans through the Department of Veteran's Affairs (VA). The intent of the loans is to provide qualifying individuals with favorable terms through private lenders. The VA guarantees specific portions of the loan, which in turn allows a home-buyer to pay reduced rates.
