MarineParents.com Chat Nights
We offer opportunities to chat live with other family members and our volunteers several evenings during the week. This is an excellent opportunity for those who prefer not to join one of our Facebook groups.
On each page of our website in the bottom left corner, you'll see a floating of our "chat bubble" icon. Click that image when it is "green" indicating that the chat night is open at that time.
Our "10 Posting Rules" must be followed in the chat room.
Join Team Marine Parents for Fitness!
We are a team of people from across the United States who run, walk, ride, swim (or any other activity!) in events all over our great nation with a goal to raise awareness of and donations for the outreach programs of MarineParents.com. Join us for team building and fitness fun, whether you're an athlete or a beginner, in a commitment to a healthy lifestyle with a dual purpose!
During the COVID-19 pandemic, we are hosting VIRTUAL RUNS. Our Virtual Runs are events attended by participants around the world on a specific set of days each month. Participants choose the type and length of event they wish to complete. They can choose to run, walk, bike, swim or any other physical activity. They also choose the distance for the event, whether 5k, 10k, 2 miles, or even a Marathon!
Community Relations: Events In Your State
Our team of Community Relations volunteers have been trained to present on behalf of the organization and to help facilitate brick and mortar "Connect & Share" events around the country. They also participate in our "Regions" Facebook Groups to communicate with family members in their own states.
Update March 15, 2020: Curing the COVID19 pandemic, our Community Relations volunteers are working the chat rooms and Facebook groups only until such time that local events can again be attended safely and within city, county, or state guidelines.
Serving the Marine Corps Community Since 2003
Through the years, we have evolved from message boards and our own social media platform to our Facebook Groups and live chat rooms. We have supported literally hundreds of thousands of family members through the years giving them a Place to Connect & Share during their recruit or Marine's career in the Corps. We've grown from providing information on support groups to our own Community Relations volunteers facilitating brick and mortar "Connect & Share" events throughout the country.
With over 200 volunteers around the United States, we are proud and honored to serve you, our Marine Corps family community, whether you are a parent, grandparent, brother, sister, cousin, or spouse, we are here for every stage of your Marine's career in the Corps and as a Veteran. You are not alone in this journey, and we're glad you've found a Place to Connect & Share®.
