MarineParents.com Travel Assistance
This is an outreach program of MarineParents.com. The mission of our Travel Assistance program is to support Marine Corps recruits by assisting one of his/her family members who shows significant financial need, to attend boot camp graduation events so the Marine is not alone.
6/29/2021 COVID-19 & GRADUATIONS
As of the end of June, both MCRD Parris Island and MCRD San Diego have opened Thursday family day and Friday graduations to the public. There is no "ticket" required to attend and you do not need an invitation. Restrictions on the base include wearing a face covering.
Applications are being accepted for Travel Assistance to attend graduations. Read below for additional information.
If you need help with travel expenses for graduation or if you would like to learn more about how our Travel Assistance program works, please visit MarineParents.com/TA. We have been serving the Marine Corps and recruit family community for more than fifteen years.
MarineParents.com Travel Assistance raises funds for each boot camp Company every cycle (except during the COVID-19 Pandemic March 2020-April 2021 when attendance at graduations was temporatily suspended by the Marine Corps). We keep each group updated as our goals are reached and applicants request funds. These fundraisers are posted in our Official MarineParents.com Facebook groups for each boot camp company. This allows the members of our Facebook groups to assist other recruit families hoping to attend their soon-to-be-Marine's graduation.
