In this section of our web site, you'll learn about communications during deployment. What type of communications will your Marine have access to while deployed? What is MotoMail? How do you contact the Marine Corps if you need assistance or have questions? Should you contact a chaplain or the Red Cross in an emergency? And, finally, how can you connect with other families who have deployed Marines?
