Being deployed to a combat zone is never easy. In addition to the constant threat of attack and the minutiae of everyday life, going months without seeing family members and loved ones can be incredibly difficult. Not being able to kiss your spouse, tuck your children into bed, or hug your parents and tell them you love them would take its toll on anyone, and Marines are no exception. Fortunately, for a number of years now, the Marine Corps’ MotoMail program has helped ease that burden by allowing Marines to communicate with their loved ones back home via electronically delivered letters and photographs in as little as 24 hours, much to the Marines’ (and their families’) delight.

Some of you have probably personally experienced the joy of MotoMail. Others are probably planning on experiencing that joy in the future. And for some of you, this may be the first you’re hearing of it. No matter what your experience (or lack thereof) with MotoMail is, the bottom line is that this program has been a wonderful asset to our Marines overseas.

Perhaps the single most important aspect of MotoMail is that, unlike Facebook and email, MotoMail is a safe and secure way to communicate with deployed Marines. Many Marines are already using these other, potentially dangerous, methods to communicate with loved ones back home. This is not a good idea by any means, and it puts our Marines at risk. If MotoMail is cancelled, this problem will only grow worse, and the potential for harm to come to our Marines will drastically increase.

With that in mind, we are sad to announce that, unless something changes, Marine Postal will be ending MotoMail services permanently on September 30, 2013 due to forced budget cuts by the Federal Government. And that’s where you come in. With your help, we can save MotoMail!

Beginning today, we at Marine Parents would like to encourage all Marine parents, family members, and supporters to write letters to Marine Postal in support of the MotoMail program. If we all come together and show Marine Postal just how important this program is and what it means to the families, friends, and loved ones of Marines, perhaps they’ll rethink their decision to end the program.

However, we need to act fast. Time is running out and we have less than a month to save MotoMail.

Cancelling MotoMail would not only be a major blow to the morale of our Marines, it could prove dangerous. Low morale can lead to complacency, which, in a combat zone, can result in injury or death.

Our organization seeks to promote the safety of our Marines and we encourage Marine family members, friends, loved ones, and supporters to join us in that position. We urge the Marine Corps not only to continue MotoMail services but to block access to Facebook and other unsecure forms of communication.

Currently, MotoMail is only a one-way service. In years past, Marines could send letters to their families and vice versa. Currently, Marines are unable to send letters, they can only receive them. We want to change that as well.

So please, write a letter (or multiple letters) to Marine Postal letting them know not only how crucial this program is for morale, but for safety as well. Make sure to include in your letter that you not only support the continuation of MotoMail, but that you also support the banning of all forms of unsecure communication as well as return of two-way MotoMail service.

The Marines fight for us every day. Now it’s time to return the favor. We have until September 30 to make this goal a reality.

You can also post a message with your plea to MotoMail. We encourage you to do both - write a letter AND post a message.
