USMC Deployment Assistance
This information contained on this page includes official USMC phone numbers and links to official USMC web sites.

The U.S. Marine Corps has established a single toll-free Marine Corps Operation Iraqi Freedom Hotline:

This hotline is intended primarily for concerned family members who are seeking accurate information, useful resources, and helpful referrals related to Marine Corps deployments. The general public is encouraged to go to the Marine Corps homepage at www.usmc.mil.

This hotline does not provide information on current operations or information on Marine Corps casualties. If a Marine becomes a casualty, the Marine Corps will personally notify all next of kin as soon as possible.

Contacting a Marine Corps Chaplain by Phone 1-877-418-6824 ext. 2
As the parent of a Marine, you may contact a chaplain regarding your Marine's health and well-being. For more information, visit the Chaplain Care web site: www.chaplaincare.navy.mil. Support for any question, including those for a Chaplain, can be obtained by dialing a single toll free number from within the continental US. Simply dial 1-877-4-1-TOUCH (1-877-418-6824) and press option 2 when you hear the recording.
