How can we help you, your Marine, or other service members? Our mission is to serve you, our Marine Corps and military family members, as well as your loved one serving our great nation.
Marine Parents provides support, information, and services to recruit and Marine family members and troops through several outreach programs which span the life-cycle of your recruit/Marine's career in the Marine Corps.
Our outreach programs, listed below with each specific mission, are designed to keep you informed, to give you a place to connect and share® with others who understand the difficulties you may face with a loved one in the service, and to help your service member during deployment, retrograde, through wounds, injuries, or illness, and transitioning after the Corps.
