In November we have one day for giving thanks, two for getting deals and a day to give back. Be a part of this global celebration of generosity by joining Marine Parents today as we make it a happy holiday season for our Marines.   Read here what your gift does for our Warriors:

Per MARADMIN 040/16, beginning January 2016, the new requirement for all first-time tuition assistance applicants is the Higher Education Preparation (HEP) Course. This course is replacing College 101..

Hi!! I am new to the group. My son will be at Cherry Point in about 3 months so I wanted to get acquainted with the area.

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!

Thanks Denita!

I did and didn't see anything there.

I have added myself to everything I can just to keep in touch with what is happening there ;-)

We hear from Jacob every week, so no need to worry.

Just excited to have his PDS and be able to keep connected.

Thanks so much for all you do!!

(kind of strange being back on this side of it.....)

Hey Denita! Jacob has landed at Cherry Point....1st of many PDS for him ;-)

Mamma_Bear51 mentioned a Cherry Point Happenings newsletter.

How do I find that?

Thanks for any info you can give to help me keep connected!

And thanks!

Hope everyone is doing well. It's been a long winter here in WV ! Calling for rain the next few days but that's better than snow and ice. Soon our local Poolees should be able to get outside to train in warmer weather. Yay ! Check out the blog below & order a Poolee kit for your local recruiting station. Help them & their families find MarineFamilyNetwork & the support that you found :)
