A letter from the founder:
Dear Parents of Recruits,
We are all on social media talking about our adult sons and daughters in their adult job. It's a great Place to Connect & Share®. But remember please, that your comments are seen by many. Some of the issues that are brought here by parents or family members for discussion are for the recruit to take up with his/her DI or SDI, not for his/her parents to post in a social media group for discussion with the general public.
This is your son or daughter's job. It is very uncommon in an adult world to have your mom and dad following behind you in your job. But we offer this space to connect with others that feel the unique emotions tied to having a son or daughter in the Marine Corps-to get support and to offer support to others. This groups are NOT to discuss job performance or expectations.
As volunteers and moderators we must respect and protect the privacy of recruits and their drill instructors. We ask that you respect and protect your recruit's privacy and the privacy of the drill instructors as well.
God Bless and Semper Fi,
Tracy Della Vecchia
Founder and Executive Director
I just wanted to say this group has been a life saver for me. The support and the guidance that I have received here is unbelievable. Thank you everyone for volunteering and helping us going through this season of our recruits' and our own lives. Blessings to all.—Norma, Charlie Co, San Diego
