This is the list of Marines who have been deployed to combat zones since 2003 in Iraq, Afghanistan, Africa and defense locations in support of OIF and OEF. This list serves two purposes. The first is for Marine parents to announce that their son or daughter has deployed overseas. The second is for prayers; please use this list to pray for the Marines as they deploy and return home during multiple deployments.
Each one of the names on the list has parents who feel the same way I do, the same way you do. The uncertainty of what is to come brings emotions and feelings that none of us thought would be part of our lives. But we have them, and so do thousands of other parents, and this is a place to come and meet other parents to share with. You are not alone. Other Marine parents understand your pain and worry; we're feeling it too.
