Profile Information

What is your relationship to your Marine or recruit?
Parent
What stage is/are your Marine(s)/recruit(s) in his/her Marine Corps Career?
Not Applicable
Our new logo is complete and we're wearing it proudly!  We're thinking a "deck out your profile" contest would be a great way to get everyone excited about our new look and your new look!  So, here's a challenge to the artistic folks out there and the not-so-artistic folks to get a new look for your profile. 

How about if we pick winners in several categories and offer a $10 Gift Certificate to the EGA Shop as a prize for each category? What categories would we be looking! Let's hear your ideas!
