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.

At we are dedicated to educating those with a connection to the military. Operations Security (OPSEC) and Personal Security (PERSEC) are two important topics for military families to understand. You can learn more about our stance on these two topics in our first article. Our philosophy at Marine Parents in regards to OPSEC and PERSEC is considered more strict than the Marine Corps'. This is to ensure our members are only sharing "need to know" information. If our members stay within our guidelines for OPSEC, they will stay within the Marine Corps guidelines as well.

Also in this newsletter, learn how you can support wounded and recovering warriors, join Team Marine Parents, meet one of our volunteers, and read about a resource we have available for veterans who are reintegrating into civilian life.

God bless and Semper Fi!

We would like to take this opportunity to explain the differences in Operations Security (OPSEC) and Personal Security (PERSEC). OPSEC deals more with the day-to-day operations going on in the Marine Corps. This can be for anything from deployment dates to weapons serial numbers to troop movements. PERSEC deals more with each individual's personal security and how they safeguard their own personal information.
