Meet the Marine Family Network Volunteer Moderators of

Staff, Directors and Volunteers

It takes a lot of volunteer hours for the Connect & Share™ online support services offered at Marine Parents. These services include Marine Family Network (MFN) and the chat nights for Marine and recruit family and friends. Each of the volunteers goes through rigorous training where each learns OpSEC guidelines as well as intense guidelines from the privacy and security of the family members posting on MFN or participating in chat nights. The volunteers are also required to have an extensive knowledge base of the services and information available at Marine Parents. Additionally, these volunteers work remotely from their homes with their own equipment and connectivity.

Our volunteers are truly commited to supporting Marine Corps families and friends and work a tremendous number of hours to get the job done, in addition to meeting the requirements of additional reading and continued education about the ever-changing organization and Marine Corps.

Let's give a big Ooh Rah! to these folks for their time and commitment!
