MARINE FOR LIFE MISSION
The Marine for Life Program’s mission is to provide sponsorship for our more than 27,000 Marines each year who honorably leave active service and return to civilian life in order to nurture and sustain the positive, mutually beneficial relationship inherent
in our ethos, “Once a Marine Always a Marine”.
The program will enhance our investment in each individual, the Marine Corps, and the American society. The program includes initiatives involving commanders and Marine Corps culture, but its groundbreaking element will be the creation of an assistance network of and Marine Corps “alumni” to provide enhanced transition assistance and support to out transitions Marines.
The end state of the Marine for Life program is a nationwide network available to all Marines honorably leaving active service that will improve their transition to
civilian life and ensure that no Marine who honorably wore the
Eagle, Globe, and Anchor is lost to the Marine Corps family.
