Most of the emails we receive are connected to finding your loved one or how to get in touch with a buddy. There are some resources out there:
Find an Active Duty Marine
You’ll need to contact the World Wide Locator at Quantico at 703-784-3942. Hours are from 8 am to 4pm Monday thru Friday. Be prepared to provide a social security number for common last names. Unit information is always helpful like Battalion and Company.
HEADQUARTERS U.S. MARINE CORPS
PERSONNEL MANAGEMENT SUPPORT BRANCH (MMSB-17)
2008 ELLIOT ROAD
QUANTICO, VA 22134-5030
Find a Veteran Marine
This is a much more complicated process because some Marines may not be connected with organizations where they can be found.
Together We Served is a great way to connect. If you have a Marine in your life, we highly recommend this site. Listen to our interview with Mike Christy as he describes what they are about.
If there is a specific unit that you served with, check out the veteran groups listed to see if one of those works for you.
