To all the 2/9

The colors are cased, the last formation dismissed. The best of luck to you and yours, may you have fair skies, following seas, and easy humps. May Semper Gumby be a stranger in your house.

Semper Fi.

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!

Does anyone have their Marine in Fox Co currently deployed?  I've had some text messages from my Marine and all is good after one week.

Yay! I found you! My son joined 2/9 last Friday May 10th

Is anyone else having problems with mail at Camp Lejuene?  I have sent several care packages, two of which he hasn't gotten and the others have taken over 10 days to get there.

Hello folks! My son will join the 2/9 on April 19 upon ITB graduation. I am glad to finally learn this information. Whew. Being a new Marine mom is hard work! :)

Hi all, our soon to be newly minted 0311 son just learned he will be assigned to the 2/9.
