Dear Marine families,

The mission of MarineParents.com is to provide support, information, and services to recruit and Marine family members and troops over the course of the life-cycle of your recruit or Marine's career in the Corps.

Thank you for supporting our troops!

God bless and Semper Fi!
MarineParents.com: In the Fleet

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).

Hispanic Heritage Month: Roberto Clemente

Roberto Clemente was born in Puerto Rico in 1934 and signed with the Pittsburgh Pirates of Major League Baseball in 1954. Typically, during the off-season Clemente would return to Puerto Rico to play "winter ball", but in the winter of 1958-59, he joined the United States Marine Corps Reserve and spent his six-month active duty commitment at Parris Island, South Carolina, Camp Lejeune, North Carolina, and in Washington, D.C. 

OPSEC: Message from the Founder

Operations Security (OPSEC) is a crucial component in the military. Maintaining OPSEC helps keep our Marines safe. The founder of MarineParents.com, Tracy Della Vecchia has a message for all to hear in regards to OPSEC.

" Please maintain personal and Operations Security Standards in ALL environments. Help keep you, your Marine and our military personnel safe by not sharing any personal or military information in email or in any online environment."

MarineParents.com: Thank You Volunteers!

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.
