The mission of Team Marine Parents is to provide the framework for individuals to participate in athletic events nationwide while raising funds and promoting awareness of the organization's outreach programs.

Team Marine Parents (TMP) has been accepted as a U.S. Marine Corps charity partner for the 7th year in a row. Through charity partners such as TMP, thousands of individuals from around the country have the opportunity to compete in the Marine Corps Marathon (MCM) while raising funds in support of a personal cause. This year, TMP will have 50 bibs available to TMP participants.

Post-Traumatic Stress
Post-traumatic stress is a NORMAL reaction to an abnormal situation.
For active duty troops and veterans living with combat operational stress (COS) and/or post-traumatic stress (PTS), we can connect you with professional experts in the field, provide free reading materials, and facilitate the ability of veterans to connect with, and help, their fellow veterans.

Marine Corps Permanent Duty Stations
When formal training (boot camp, School of Infantry, and military occupational schooling) is complete, each Marine is assigned to a Permanent Duty Station (PDS).

Your Marine may be stationed at any number of permanent duty stations around the world, depending on his or her Military Occupational Specialty (the job that your Marine will do while in the Corps).
