CONNECTIONS: A Place to Connect and Share
Connections is a Place to Connect & Share™ with other Marine and/or recruit families: moms, dads, spouses, families and friends. You'll find a CHAT ROOM open each evening and a community of MESSAGE BOARDS buzzing with activity 24 hours a day, seven days a week. Our LIVE SUPPORT gives you an opportunity to speak privately with one of our trained volunteers. Use this section as a Place to Connect & Share™ with other Marine families.
The following links are available in this section of the web site:
This is the page you are on now; an overview of the tools we have for connecting and sharing.
- Live Support
This feature allows you to talk privately using an instant message interface with one of our trained volunteers.
- Chat Room Schedule
The chat room is open each evening and offers a variety of different rooms depending on your needs. Once inside the chat interface, choose one of the following rooms: Quiet Room, Support Room, Just For Fun, For Wives and Girlfriends, Unit Chat, Boots & Recruits and Gold Star. The "Just For Fun" room runs at a quick pace, but jump right in! The other chat rooms are more specific to needs and/or questions. Our volunteers staff the chat room and are happy to help you get started. The chat room is a warm atmosphere to connect and share.
- Chat LOGIN
This is the page you go to login to the chat room.
- Message Boards & Forum
A message board is always open; people use the boards to post questions, respond to questions, tell stories and share concerns. We have a board for Parents of Recruits and a board for Parents of Marines totalling over 12,000 active members as of May, 2005. You'll find forums within the boards for your recruits graduation day and a form for each Marine Corps unit. That means your talking to families whose Marine or Recruit if with YOUR Marine or Recruit. Folks are really enjoying it as a Place to Connect & Share®.
- Stories & Prayers
We started this section prior to the war and we still get an occasional contribution. If you have something to contribut to this section, it will remain a permanent fixture on www.MarineParents.com.
- Support Groups
This is a list of regional support groups-not online groups, but actual groups that are meeting around the country; check frequently for one in your area or use the tips and ideas to start your own regional support group. We add to the list each time a new support group is up and running, so be sure to add your support group so other's may find you..
