Adopting a Marine for the Holidays

Every year the news is filled with heartwarming stories about Marines and other service people who have been reunited with their loved ones over the Thanksgiving and/or Christmas holidays. But what about those marines who are either too far away from or cannot afford the trip home for the holidays? Luckily, for these marines whose sacrifices are no less important than the lucky ones who get to be reunited with loved ones, there are organizations that help to connect service members with local families for the holidays. As veterans ourselves, we at eMarine PX are not only interested in providing quality US Marine gifts to our customers, we would also like to express our appreciation to the efforts of civilians who strive to make this special time of year enjoyable for service people who have returned to the US but who are separated from their loved ones.

Reaching out to organizations like the nearest Armed Services YMCA or USO office is an excellent way to begin the process of hosting a service person that is home for the holidays. You can also find out more about adopting a marine by contacting your nearest military installation’s MWR (Morale, Welfare, and Recreation) office. Service people who are in the position of not being able to reunite with loved ones will greatly appreciate being a made a part of their host family’s Christmas traditions and customs. Happy holidays from the people at eMarine PX.

About Skip

eMarine PX is an online retailer of U.S.M.C. specialties run by a group of Marine Corps Veterans. The idea to create eMarine PX came from our own experience with trying to find affordable Marine Corps products. As a member of the 26th Marines during the Vietnam War, we complained about not being able to find products for the 26th Marines and when we did find something they were extremely expensive to purchase. Hence eMarinePX.com was born. eMarine PX is the Official National PX for the 3rd Marine Division Association. eMarine PX products are sold exclusively online and through a printed catalog to be able to offer quality U.S.M.C. products at affordable prices. The management team has extensive experience with retail management which translates to fast and friendly service to our customers. The eMarine PX warehouse sits on 5 acres in the Tahoe Forest in Nevada City, California offering the ability to ship anywhere in the world including FPO/APO address'. Plans are already in place to expand the warehouse to better serve all Veterans, active duty Marines and their families. eMarine PX is licensed with the USMC Trademark Office in DC. eMarine PX are proud members of: Vietnam Veterans of America (Life Member) 1st Marine Division Association (Life Member) 3rd Marine Division Association (Life Member) Disabled American Veterans (Life Member) Veterans of Foreign Wars (Life Member) Marine Corps League (Life Member) American Legion Marine Corps Association BPOE
