Transitioning Out of the Corps
Transitioning from military to civilian society life can be a challenge, particularly for veterans who have experienced combat or other traumatic events during a deployment. There are, however, a variety of factors that can help ease this transition, perhaps the most important one being the willingness to take the first step toward committing to recovery.

April is Month of the Military Child

Established in 1986 by then-Defense Secretary Caspar Weinberger, April is the Month of the Military Child. April is not only a month to be aware of what these children are sacrificing, it's a time to say and show thanks.

There is one question that any good Marine will ask on a regular basis. "How can I get promoted?" That answer will vary depending on the rank of the Marine. We will keep it simple and stick to the basics of getting promoted.
