History and Achievements
The web site MarineParents.com, Inc., founded in January of 2003, offers education and support for parents, spouses, family and friends of our U.S. Marines. Education and support is available for each stage of the Marine Corps, including bootcamp, training, active duty, deployments and transitioning out of the Marine Corps.

To date, MarineParents.com, Inc. has assisted more than 400,000 Marine Corps families, shipped several thousand care packages to Marines in combat zones, sent thousands of prayers and letters to injured Marines, and actively encouraged community awareness for supporting our troops through The Care Package Project™, Operation PAL™, Purple Heart Hero Support™, and Team Marine Parents™.

The organization is under the management of the founder and executive director, Tracy Della Vecchia, in Columbia, Missouri. Tracy works with twelve full-time employees and four part-time employee, along with nearly 600 volunteers and 48 manager volunteers from around the United States. The 10-member board of directors meets regularly and includes Marine parents and active duty Marines. Due to the phenomenal growth of the organization in 2009, operations moved to a permanent office space in Columbia, Missouri. Benefactors donated over $250,000 in supplies and labor to build our corporate office, and because of their generous gifts, Marine Parents was able to ship its care packages from its own warehouse for the first time ever!

The web sites receive over 150,000 unique visitors, totaling more than 12 million hits, each week. There are over 130,000 registered members in the Marine Parent and Recruit Parent message board communities. We send out over 27,000 electronic newsletters each week.
