Welcome ! I'm sure he will like it at LeJuene. The weather is nice there and there is lots to do in the area. The basè is huge and there are some beautiful beaches nearby.

Welcome Delagraz,
The UIP for the 3/8 is:
This board can be kinda quiet since the group is small so you should also be sure to join the Camp Lejuene board:
And maybe the Parents of Marines:

If you have any questions don't hesitate to ask.

Hi, my son just became part of 3/8. His PDS is Camp Lejeune. We are new to the military family. So any information is greatly appreciated.

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!

Interested in a live chat on MFN?
Tracy, founder of, Inc., has started a topic asking for your input. We are able to man a live chat directly on MFN. It would be a general chat, moderated, of course. Please share your thoughts with Tracy by going either to the home page where you'll see the topic started in the center, just above the 'do you shop at Amazonsmile' logo (which if you check that out it will donate .5% of everything you spend at Amazon to MarineParents when you check out - it's simple to set up !! ) :

Here is the direct link to the topic:

Go try it. It's like an instant chat feature running in the lower right hand corner. You don't need java for it to run. You can keep your boards open. You can choose when you want to be in the chat room and when you don't.

You guys know how it works .... I know you have chased that GREEN DOT before !! Same concept. So log in and chat away !! You can clear your chat history. Mods will be available to answer questions. We think you will like it it. It's up and running right now so give it try !
Thank you!
