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.

Having the information for the unit that our Marines are at can help us feel more comfortable with our Marines being gone. You can find our Unit Information Page in our first article. 

In this newsletter, meet a volunteer and a Team Marine Parents participant, learn  about SOI, acronyms for After the Corps, Red Fridays, and our Official Facebook Groups. 

God bless and Semper Fi!

These questions are some of the most frequently asked. We've provided answers from USMC School of Infantry (SOI) documentation. The most up to date answers can be found on official Marine Corps sites. 

Red Friday

Beginning in 2005, military supporters across America started wearing red on Fridays to show support for the service members who protect our freedoms and way of life around the world. In the decade since, thousands of individuals, organizations, and businesses have taken up this cause and joined in observing "Red Fridays," as they've come to be known, to show their support for our men and women in uniform.
