As parents and mentors to United States Marines, we are asking you to reach out to your Marine and have them share their story with the Marines.com audience. You have seen firsthand the transformation that takes place when your loved one begins the journey to becoming a Marine.

Their story will be an example to others who are also seeking to earn the title of United States Marine.
Please have your Marine email firstname.lastname@example.org with the following information:
-A photo before recruit training and then one after- perhaps at graduation, a dress blues picture, or at a duty station or on deployment
