Fellow Marine parents,

The mission of, Inc., is to provide support, information, and services to Marines and their family members, and create opportunities for the public to support our troops through the organization's outreach programs and Facebook groups. Our dedicated volunteers help get this information to Marines and their family members so that they can be as prepared as possible. You can read about our volunteers in our first article. 

In our other articles, meet a volunteer and a Team Marine Parents participant, learn about Marine Corps weapon systems, find fundraising information, and read about our outreach program, Angel Day Tribute.   

God bless and Semper Fi! Volunteers

It's volunteer appreciation month! This organization could not exist if it were not for the contributions of hundreds of parents around the United States. Our volunteers have taken that one step further and contribute endless hours answering emails, moderating the social media groups, researching information, and supporting the parents, spouses, family, and friends of our United States Marines. The dedication to the Marine Corps from each of these individuals benefits thousands of families around the world.

Next week, April 23-29, is National Volunteer Appreciation Week. We will be sending out a daily MarineParents newsletter highlighting the accomplishments of our amazing volunteers.

Featured TMP Participant:
Dale Larson

Team Marine Parents (TMP) is a group of individuals, generally parents, family and friends of Marines, who participate in athletic events nationwide to support our troops. The mission is to raise funds and awareness of the organization's outreach programs.

This year, as a member of Team Marine Parents Dale will be running in over a dozen half marathons. After recovering from cancer in late 2014, he set a personal goal of completing at least one half marathon per month, and so far he's right on track.

Dale has made it his goal to raise $500 for the outreach programs of, Inc!

Marine Corps Weapon Systems

While attending School of Infantry (SOI), your Marine will become acquainted with a variety of different weapons and weapon systems. This is a crucial component of Marine Corps training. Every Marine is a rifleman and any Marine may find him or herself faced with combat operations, whether he or she is an infantry Marine or not. 

Angel Day Tribute

The thought of brave men and women giving their lives on behalf of our country brings many images to mind. The battlefield cross. A flag-draped casket. Family members, friends, and brothers and sisters in arms weeping at the loss of a loved one. But from tragedy comes hope, and determination—especially the determination that the sacrifices of these brave men and women will never be forgotten.
