"A Marine's Prayer" on a plaque.


Almighty Father, 
whose command is over all and whose love never fails, 
make me aware of Thy presence and obedient to Thy will. 
Keep me true to my best self, 

guarding me against dishonesty in purpose and deed 
and helping me to live so that I can face my fellow Marines, 
my loved ones and Thee without shame or fear. 
Protect my family. 
Give me the will to do the work of a Marine and 
to accept my share of responsibilities with vigor and enthusiasm. 
Grant me the courage to be proficient in my daily performance. 
Keep me loyal and faithful to my superiors and to the duties 
my country and the Marine Corps have entrusted to me. 
Make me considerate of those committed to my leadership. 
Help me to wear my uniform with dignity, and 
let it remind me daily of the traditions which I must uphold. 
If I am inclined to doubt, steady my faith; 
if I am tempted, make me strong to resist; 
if I should miss the mark, give me courage to try again. 
Guide me with the light of truth and grant me the wisdom 
by which I may understand the answer to my prayer. 
- Amen

Operation Prayers and Letters™

Our injured troops need your support through Prayers and Letters. Since the beginning of this all-volunteer operation, over 90,000 cards and letters have been delivered. We invite you to participate in this project, as an individual or as an organization, and to send much needed prayers, hand-written letters, and cards to the service members who have been wounded, injured or become ill while serving in combat zones, as well as service members that have recently served and then became injured or ill.

Support from the public for these outstanding wounded heroes is paramount to recovery. Each journey can be long and is often painful. You can help make a difference in the lives of these young men and women. Send a "Thank-You" today. Click here to learn more.

In over 12 years of service, Marine Parents has made a huge impact in support of Marines, military personnel, and their family members.

Marine family members are encouraged to support one another through activities and networking provided by the organization and guided by trained volunteers. Outreach to injured troops is volunteer-centered with in-person contact. Additional troop-support centered programs are designed to actively engage individuals and communities across the United States while maintaining the privacy of military personnel. All services are offered free to family members, Marines, and military personnel.

In 12 years of service, MarineParents.com has:

Tracy Della Vecchia, Founder and Executive Director, leads the operations from the corporate office in Columbia, Missouri with staff, volunteers, and a volunteer Board of Directors. In addition to the moderated, OPSEC-compliant social media groups, chat rooms, and informative websites, several outreach programs to support Marines and families before, during and after the Marine Corps are provided by the organization. Funding for the programs is through donations, grants, fundraising and EGA Shop sales. In 2009, the 15-item online store began expansion, eventually becoming the EGA Shop. In 2010, the production facility was established on-site to design and develop custom product, dramatically boosting sales and providing additional funding for the outreach programs. The organization is an official Marine Corps Trademark licensee.
