#1 Remember our Mission & Be Kind
This is a Place to Connect & Share® as Marine Corps families. Join the group only if you meet the criteria. Stay on topic. Support is encouraged; kindness is required; bullying and vulgarity are not permitted. Everyone needs to feel safe while sharing.
#2 OPSEC, PERSEC, Respect, & Privacy
Posts and comments violating OPSEC or PERSEC are not permitted. Being part of this group requires mutual trust; what is said in the group stays in the group. Respect your own privacy and respect the privacy of others, your family, and your recruit or Marine.
#3 Marine Corps Privacy & Business
Respect USMC personnel privacy, safety and chain of command. Posts about USMC business or contact information for USMC personnel are not permitted. Let the Marine Corps run the Marine Corps; when the USMC shares it, we can share it.
#4 No Advertising, Soliciting, or Fundraising
Advertising, soliciting, fundraising or spamming are not permitted. Posts and comments mentioning other services, organizations, businesses, solicitation, fundraising, or spam will be removed and the member in violation will be removed from the group.
#5 Other Social Media & PMs
Posts or comments which include social media groups other than Official MarineParents.com Facebook Groups are not permitted. We discourage PMs; requests to PM group members are not permitted. Moderators and Admins for like-groups will be removed from our groups.
#6 Links, Websites, News, & Articles
Links, websites, news, or articles deemed inappropriate, off-topic, or in violation of our posting rules are not permitted. News MUST be from established sources. Links to websites deemed in competition with the organization or the EGAshop.com are not permitted.
#7 Military Incidences & Casualties
Posts or comments about military incidences/casualties are not permitted until the military, USMC or Department of Defense has released an official notice. It is NOT important for group members to be "First to Know". The FAMILY MEMBERS must be the first to know.

Posts in violation of copyright are not permitted. Photos and videos in violation of our posting rules are not permitted. Personal photos of a Marine in uniform with a weapon, or recruits in training exercises or drill (except at graduation), are not permitted.
#9 No Politics or Calls to Action
Posts or comments about politics jeopardize the support atmosphere and are not permitted. Posts and comments with a call to action deemed in violation of our posting rules are not permitted. Those agendas simply do not belong in our groups.
#10 Support the Organization
We've been helping Marines and their family members as a non-profit since 2003. We will make posts about our good works. We will ask for donations. We will ask you to shop in our store, EGAShop.com where 85% of our income is derived. Please help us help others.
