Supporting Your Family
You are entrusting us with your sons and daughters and we are grateful. In return, we make this three-part Marine commitment to parents, and all Americans:
We will Make Marines, instilling our core values to build on their character.
We will Win our Nation’s Battles, giving every Marine the training and resources to succeed.
We will Develop Quality Citizens, inspiring Marines to become active participants in their communities.
Official resources for families of Marines include Family Relations Officers (FROs) who are assigned regionally to connect you with the Marine Corps and other Marine families.
Marine parents receive support from thousands of other Marine parents worldwide. Proud Marine moms and Marine dads connect through blogs, message boards, get-togethers and activities. They find comfort in sharing stories and information and getting to know each other while their sons and daughters are away for Recruit Training and deployment.
It's an immensely proud group. From Marine clothing to bumper stickers to pins to home decor, Marine parents love to show that they have a son or daughter in the Corps and to meet others who do, too.
