In this issue, learn how you can find information about YOUR Marine's unit and take a look at the restructuring we've done to make information on Iraq & Afghanistan deployments easier to find. Remember hotel reservations for the April conference need to be made by March 21! And we'd like to announce that is now a 501(c)(3) public charity.
