Letter from the Admiral

Thank you for your generous support of the 2014 Active Duty Fund Drive. For 110 years, the Navy-Marine Corps Relief Society has been there for Sailors and Marines who faced family emergencies, natural disasters and other unexpected life events that strain monthly budgets.

When you give to the Society, your support provides short-term, interest-free loans and grants; free budget counseling; junior sea bags with hand-made blankets for newborns; and registered nurses who visit the homes of young mothers and those healing from the wounds of combat service.

When Sailors and Marines fall on hard times, Society volunteers are there to help them get back on their feet, and you make that happen!
