Marines Social Media Handbook Throughout the Marine Corps' history, people have discussed, debated and embraced the United
States Marine Corps and our Marines. These discussions continue today through online conversations
and social networks. The Corps recognizes the importance of participating in these conversations and
has a basic set of social media principles to help empower Marines and our community to participate in
the discussions as better communicators and improved representatives of our Corps. Click here to view the PDF file from the USMC. Click here

Department of Defense News Portal The Department of Defense launched a new home page August 17, 2009, www.Defense.gov, designed to invite participation from the public and make military news and information more accessible. The new Web site will provide quick access to those sites that are most sought by Web site visitors, including DoD social media sites, the Pentagon Channel and DoD news stories.
Marine Corps Manual A Marine Parents supporter suggested we include this manual on our list. This Marine Corps Manual is issued for the instruction and guidance of all persons in the Department of the Navy in matters concerning the Marine Corps.
