SUBJ/2015 ACTIVE DUTY FUND DRIVE IN SUPPORT OF THE NAVY-MARINE CORPS RELIEF SOCIETY//
GENTEXT/REMARKS/1.  SINCE 1904, THE NAVY-MARINE CORPS RELIEF SOCIETY (NMCRS) HAS OFFERED OUR MARINES, SAILORS AND FAMILIES A PLACE TO TURN FOR ASSISTANCE. WHETHER HELPING MARINES TRAVEL TO THE BEDSIDE OF AN ILL OR INJURED FAMILY MEMBER, OR SENDING REGISTERED NURSES TO VISIT THE HOME OF AN INJURED MARINE, THE SOCIETY HAS CONSISTENTLY GIVEN PEACE OF MIND TO THOSE IN NEED.
2.  OVER THE PAST YEAR, THE SOCIETY’S 3,700 VOLUNTEERS AND SMALL CADRE OF EMPLOYEES COORDINATED 48 MILLION DOLLARS IN INTEREST-FREE LOANS AND GRANTS TO MORE THAN 65,000 MARINES, SAILORS AND THEIR FAMILIES. NMCRS IS A VITAL CONTRIBUTOR TO UNIT READINESS -- AND A LIFELINE WHEN AN UNFORESEEN CRISIS EXCEEDS A MARINE'S FINANCIAL ABILITY TO COPE.
3.  NOW IS THE TIME TO HELP FELLOW MARINES BY SUPPORTING THE ACTIVE DUTY FUND DRIVE. DURING THE MONTHS OF MARCH AND APRIL, I ASK ALL WHO WEAR THE EAGLE, GLOBE AND ANCHOR TO COMMIT TO SUPPORTING THE 2015 NMCRS ACTIVE DUTY FUND DRIVE. I’M COUNTING ON LEADERS TO ASSIGN FUND DRIVE COMMAND REPRESENTATIVES AND ENSURE ALL MARINES ARE PROVIDED THE OPPORTUNITY TO LEARN MORE ABOUT NMCRS. MARINES AND SAILORS NEED TO BE WELL INFORMED ABOUT THE PROGRAMS AND SERVICES OFFERED BY NMCRS AND BE OFFERED THE OPPORTUNITY TO VOLUNTARILY DONATE.
4.  NMCRS HAS KEPT FAITH WITH MARINES AND SAILORS - THIS MARCH AND APRIL IT'S OUR TURN TO GIVE BACK.
5.  SEMPER FIDELIS, JOSEPH F. DUNFORD JR, GENERAL, U.S. MARINE CORPS, COMMANDANT OF THE MARINE CORPS.//
