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!

Hi, proud mom! and Welcome!  what is your son's MOS?  how is he doing?  and you, lol?  Mibe has been in 3 years, deployed twice, ad will be getting out soon with the early out option.  At least that's the plan, but Semper gumby as we all know.

Hello! I just found out my son is going to be stationed with this group. He is getting ready to finish up ITB so I am still very new at this.

This is the information page for the 1/8..

It does have phone #'s on it to get you started.......

Comment by momliz on January 30, 2012 at 3:58pm

all the info you need - and a LOT of rumors and drama - is on the i/8 Facbook page.  you don't need to be on facebook to see it, but you must be signed in to comment. search for 1st Battalion, 8th Marines (Official Site)

Yes! Charlie here! have you heard from your son?  I haven't :(
