Founded in 1904, the Navy-Marine Corps Relief Society is a private, non-profit charitable organization. It is sponsored by the Department of the Navy and operates nearly 250 offices ashore and afloat at Navy and Marine Corps bases throughout the world. The Society was incorporated in the District of Columbia and has its headquarters in Arlington, Virginia. A Board of Directors whose members are active duty or retired members of the Naval Services, or spouses of active duty or retired members of the Naval Services manages the fund.
The mission of the Navy-Marine Corps Relief Society is to provide, in partnership with the Navy and Marine Corps, financial, educational and other assistance to members of the Naval Services of the United States, eligible family members, and survivors when in need. They receive and manage funds to administer these programs.
Although sponsored by the Department of the Navy, the Society is a non-profit organization whose programs are totally funded by charitable contributions. For more information on how you can help, visit the Navy-Marine Corps Relief Society Website at: www.nmcrs.org
Hundreds of thousands of American troops are deployed indefinitely in remote parts of the world, including the Middle East, Afghanistan, Africa, the Korean Peninsula and on ships throughout international waters. The physical conditions they must endure are difficult and they may be separated from loved ones for long periods of time. Operation Gratitude, together with the California Army National Guard, 746th QM BN, Van Nuys, seek to lift troops' morale, and bring a smile to their faces by sending care packages to service members overseas. OPERATION GRATITUDE care packages contain food, toiletries, entertainment items and personal letters of appreciation, all wrapped with good wishes of love and support.
