6 Flags

Marine Corps Recruiters Work 7 Days A Week

Help Us Give Them A Day With Their Family

Added July 13, 2018

Marines often work odd and long hours. For the most part, the Marines that come to mind are Drill Instructors or Marines deployed, and rightfully so. However, often lost in the shuffle are Marine Corps Recruiters. Recruiters spend a large amount of time away from their families conducting poolee functions, driving poolees to and from MEPS, and filling out paperwork. Recruiters work long hours seven days a week and do not get to spend much time with their families.

MarineParents.com is holding a fundraiser to give a group of Marine Corps recruiters and Marines who work in the recruiting offices from the New York city area a break from their duties by sending them to Six Flags in mid July to spend some much needed time with their family members.
