    Would you be interested in Live Chat here on MFN?

    Click here to read more and give your opinion! Thanks for your feedback!

    MFN Members have asked that we keep the live chat interface. For a trial period, we'll open it from 7:00 a.m. to 10:00 p.m. Monday through Friday the week of April 7, 2014. 

    YOU can send an American Flag (Made in the USA!) to a Marine in Afghanistan. The Marine can hoist the flag in Afghanistan, then bring it home to preserve as a family heirloom.

    We will include the flag in a care package along with a card describing our "500 Flags for Heirlooms" campaign to 500 Marines in Afghanistan.

    We're shipping 500 boxes on April 26th and we need funding to purchase 500 American-Made Flags. YOU can help:

    Click here to donate a flag to a Marine!

     

    "Live" chat

    We have a live moderated chat every Sunday through Friday evening from 8-10 PM CENTRAL.  Under the Connect&Share tab in the banner above there's a link to our live chat room.  Recruit chats are M, W, F;  deployment chat is on Tu;  and family support chats from Su through F.  Never tried a ‘live chat’?  You'll need the latest version of Java.  Check it out:
