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.

MarineParents.com Travel Assistance raises funds for each boot camp Company every cycle. 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.
