I forgot - there is also the secure site the Marines have started - that you can register for via the FRO - emarine.org

I think there are fewer parents of Active Duty Marines around, Anita, because fewer Marines are deployed to combat situations than in previous years - and that's a good thing!  There is also better communication with their Marines for families than in years past - via fb and other media.  Also, the one thing I miss with our old message board is we could click that 'active topics' link and see all of the activity going on all over.  So you don't get that overview and connection with members all over the place.  However, we still have, as in the past, a lot of Recruit families. 

Is your son deployed to Afghanistan?  Have you found his battalion group?  Not that it may be very busy:
