Dear Marine parents,

The mission of MarineParents.com, 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.

The Marine Corps Marathon has come and gone, but our TMP runners continue to raise money for the outreach programs of MarineParents.com. Our TMP participants have raised almost $29,000 so far in 2017. We had 35 of our TMP participants run the Marine Corps Marathon and we are very grateful for their hard work and dedication. You can read more and view pictures from the marathon in our first article.

Also in this newsletter, you can read about our featured volunteer, 10 day leave and Recruiter's Assistance after boot camp, and learn about Sergeant Rob Jones and how you can support him as he runs 31 marathons in 31 days.

God bless and Semper Fi!
