My son is in 1st LAR for the upcoming MEU. He said " You ought to get back on Marine and give me some advise ". So I'm back to the place that got us through bootcamp and SOI. I will be reading through all of the old MEU stuff. I am looking forward to using the support of this site for the upcoming deployment.

Oh my gosh, haven't been here in along time!! Just finished our first deployment (15th MEU). Any tips on how to help us all make this adjustment?

I do not know what Motomail is.  I have sent e-mail and APO mail to my son on the 15th Expeditionary Unit.  Is Motomail better?  How do I access it?

Hi everyone with the 15th! A lot of mixed emotions at the moment so I want to take a moment for a gentle reminder. :)


I know your instinct will be to shout out whatever your Marine shares with you or what you learn from other sources.  While you can share some things, much of what you learn can't be shared


What is not allowed is anything mission related.

For instance we don't allow these items to be posted:

1)when a ship will be in port

2)when it is leaving

3) the name of the port

4)where a ship currently is or where it will be in the future (past info is ok).


So you can't say "in three days they'll be in pulling up to the dock" or "only one more day of liberty and then they push off" or "they are so tired of just sitting so close to Hong Kong with nothing to do".


5) Also nothing about any communications or logistics problems or mission readiness such as "they are having huge computer problems" or "they haven't been able to get supplied and things are a little dicey" or "flu is hitting the crew and they are operating at less than full capacity"... basically anything to do with troop movement, mission readiness or a mission is not allowed.


The last thing we want is for the enemy to have this info.


The names of the ships in a MEU are made public knowledge by the USMC.  They are on official USMC websites and the official USMC facebook pages.  They even have official pages for each ship.   So it is ok to name a ship in a post.


I would please, also urge you to show caution on what you share on facebook and other social network sites.


If you have any questions about what can be posted, please don't hesitate to ask. Let's keep your Marines safe. :)
