Review for Marineparents Com Inc, Columbia, MO, USA

Rating: 4 stars  

Like most of the others, my son is a Marine, and like several others, this came about by total surprise. My son gave up a free college education, headed cross country without any notice, and enlisted on the west coast. I found this site in a state of bewilderment, and got some great support from a few of the fellow parents here. Things have become much more stabile since my son graduated boot camp, but this site is a great source of support for those with "new to the marines" children. The young marines I met are a great group of men, and I'm quite proud of my son and his comrades. It's nice to support this branch specifically, and though I donate to the USO as well, it's nice to know my support to MFN goes directly to the best branch of our military OoooooRAH! I especially like the gift packs, as you see exactly what your $22.50 is buying for a deserving Marine. No CEO with his hand out taking the lions share.
I'd give 5 stars for a rating, but find the message boards a bit hard to follow at times.
