Dear Marine parents,

The mission of MarineParents.com, 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.

OPSEC is a critical component in the Marine Corps. It is vital that we follow the guidelines set by the Marine Corps in order to protect the sensitive information our Marines deal with on a daily basis. You can learn more about OPSEC in our first article.    

In this newsletter, meet a volunteer and a Team Marine Parents participant, learn  about the different weapon systems and find your Marines unit on our Unit Information Page

God bless and Semper Fi!

OPSEC


OPSEC is keeping potential adversaries from discovering critical Department of Defense information. As the name suggests, it protects U.S. operations — planned, in progress, and those completed.
