Dear 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.

June is Post Traumatic Stress (PTS) Awareness Month, we need your help raising $4,000 for our outreach program, Warrior Support Team. Every donation helps, and we will use that money towards connecting and sharing with warriors over dinner at military medical facilities on both coasts. You can learn more about how you can help in our first article.  

In this newsletter, meet a volunteer and a Team Marine Parents participant, learn  about the different types of communication during deployments, and read about the Real ID Act. 

God bless and Semper Fi!

Help us Set the Table for Recovering Warriors

Our recovering warriors have sacrificed so much while serving our nation. Now it's our turn to serve them. Help us set the dinner table to help begin the healing. Make your donation today. Our goal is to raise $4,000 per month to continue serving meals at military medical facilities on both coasts. 

While serving dinners may seem like a small thing, they are loved by the men and women who attend them. And we need your help to ensure that they continue.

These dinners are about more than just providing a hot meal to those who have sacrificed so much on our behalf. They're about more than breaking up the monotony of what can be a long and challenging recovery process. They're about more than giving volunteers a chance to meet, interact with, and show support for our service members.

Communication During Deployment

With the technology available today, both at home and in the field, your Marine has many more options for communicating with family and friends back home. Every deployment will vary with availability for these methods. Understanding all of the methods available for communication will be important. There are situations when one form will work better over another form.
