Welcome Mary! A quiet group but hopefully families are still following and can share.
Do join and follow the MCB Lejuene group too. Maybe you will find another 1/6 member.

The Parents of Marines is a general gathering place for just about everyone. This group is located with Marine Supporters.

My best wishes for your Marine with thanks for his service now and in the future.

Hi everyone !

Please check out this link to vote for a Sgt. in the Marine Corps for American Hero of the Year. The deadline for voting is just a few days (Sept. 6) from now. The Sgt. is one of five finalists for American Hero of the Year and the only Marine:
Thank you!

Many Congrats for those coming home soon, and more prayers for the main body coming later!! This has been a long first deployment for me and having two sons away(one in Sandland, and one in another FOB) I'm so happy they are both coming home real soon! May God be with those families of Marines that paid the ultimate price, and our injured Marines and their families too!

With Christmas coming very soon, I wanted to extend my warm wishes of the Christmas season to all of my marine family. Deployments are hard on everyone. Especially those of us that are waiting for a marine to come home, or the recovery process or maybe the loss of your dearest marine. Keep each other lifted up through prayers, notes, cards, phone calls, emails, etc. We will survive cause we are a Marine Family.

Merry CHristmas and Happy New Year!
