I'm writing this introduction as I get ready
to attend my first ever Marine Corps Ball. I'm
excited, as always, to be in the company of Marines--the
men and women that defend our freedom. But
what is even more keene for me on this
birthday celebration, is that the Marines have been
defending our country for 234 years. That's a lot of
years, and they've done it right from the
beginning. Though that seems to be a huge
accomplishment to you and I and the civilians looking
on, the Marines really don't see it as a big deal. It's
just another day at the office for them.
I have a hundred thank you's to say tonight to the
few and the proud. But I know going into the game that
every Marine will tell me it's not necessary to thank
them as they are only doing their job.
To all of the Marines, and to all of the Veterans
celebrating the last two days, thank you for your
service to our great nation! Ooh

In the space and
time that is MarineParents.com the organization, we've
only been around for about seven years. In that time,
we've learned from one another, not only how to get
through bootcamp and deployments, but how to help one
another and our Marines when the going gets tough.
It seems each day there are new needs being
presented to us as an organization and we have to
carefully pick and choose how we'll spend our resources
in time and money to assure we're providing the best
quality support we can, and in the areas that matter the
most within our mission statement. That has never been
more apparent for me than in the last few weeks here at
the corporate office.
We've attended a whirlwind of events in the last
weeks of October, starting with an event held at the
Marine Corps Museum in Quantico, Virginia to remember
our fallen heroes...
The holiday season
is upon us and it's time to Deck the Halls with Yellow

Not every school fits every person, so it is imperative that you find one that meets your needs. We are pleased to offer multiple resources that will assist you in making an informed decision regarding your educational needs.
Those who have served, past and present, should make informed decisions when it comes to borrowing money. Your military service entitles you to a number of benefits, among them the ability to purchase a home while taking advantage of the VA’s no-down payment home loan program.
Employers throughout the country and around the world value your military service for reasons you already know- those who serve learn quickly, know technology, understand teamwork, and have a work ethic second to none. We are the liaison between employers and world-class job seekers.
