DEPLOYMENTS: Communications During Deployments:
Communicating With Other Families
During your Marine's deployment, it can be a tremendous help to be in touch with other families experiencing the same things you're going through. What helps even more, is to put you in touch with those families whose Marine is with YOUR Marine.
We have several venues for online communication with the network of families at MarineParents.com, Inc. Those venues are described under the left link titled "Connect & Share" and include message boards, chat rooms, and live support.
The message boards are arranged by Marine Corps units, or battalions, so families whose Marines are together, can also come together to connect and share concerns, questions, and emotions. To locate the message board for your Marine's unit or battalion, search the message board community, or viw the Units Deployed and Unit Information Pages section of the web site. If you are still unable to connect with families from your Marine's unit, let us know!
The following resources will help you find a Place to Connect & Share™:
- Unit Information Pages
This is a new section of the web site where we have gathered unit information in a searchable database. We're inputting the units as quickly a we can. To use the interface, type what you think is your Marine's battalion in the search field. To access that page, use the left link titled "Unit Information" just above the "Deployment" link.
- Units Deployed
This page lists what we currently know to be deployed units, and when possible, a link directly to the message board for that unit. We are constantly updating this page; if you find a unit missing that should be on the page, let us know. To access this section of the web site, use the left link titled "Deployment" then click "Units Deployed".
- Message Boards
The message boards have a unit-specific forum that you can use to communicate with other families whose Marines are with YOUR Marine in the same location. For more information, please see the Unit Information Page for your Marine's unit.
- Chat Room
The chat room is open each evening and most units or battalions have a designated chat evening once or twice each month. For more information about the chat room nights scheduled for your Marine's unit or battalion, see the Unit Information Page for your Marine's unit.
