What's After Boot™ Community
Facebook group members will now have "a Place to Connect & Share®" while their Marines are at School of Infantry (SOI). This is another way to bond with other Marine parents, family members, and friends. We encourage you to join your Marine's SOI Group to meet up with other Marine family members. Semper Family!
To join your Official MarineParents.com Marine Corps SOI Group, you will need to select either Marine Combat Training (MCT) or Infantry Training Battalion (ITB) depending on your Marine's Military Occupational Specialty (MOS). It can be confusing to understand where your Marine is headed next. For help with this, please join our WAB group and a volunteer will assist you.
