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.

Our outreach programs continue to be the driving force for the organization. Our outreach programs don't only pertain to Marines but also to their family members in every stage of the Corps. You can learn how Marine Parents is there for Marines and their family members through every stage of their career in the Marine Corps in our first article.

Also in this newsletter, you can read about our featured volunteer and TMP participants, learn more about amazon smile, read about the Marine Corps Martial Arts Program, and make your charitable, tax deductible, year-end donation.

God bless and Semper Fi!
All Stages of the Corps

The mission of 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.

This sentiment is reflected in our Marine Corps Career icon. From the time your future-Marine is a poolee, through boot camp, the school of infantry and military occupational schooling, permanent duty stations and deployments, and then after your Marine's time in the Corps or if he or she is recovering from wounds or injuries sustained while serving, we have information for every step of the journey.
