Operational Security (OPSEC) and Personal Security (PERSEC) have similarities but are not the same thing. OPSEC deals more with the day to day operations in the Marine Corps. PERSEC deals with personal information and how each individual protects that information.

Programs for Recruiters has been providing Marine Corps recruiters with information and resources for parents since 2005. We offer Poolee Kits, provide speakers for events, as well as other programs.

"As the founder of, I want to offer a tribute to a man who always supported the troops (and the causes I was involved with at but never asked for, nor expected, any accolades for his support.

Still smiling about that today. Rest in peace, Marine."
