MCA&F Makes A Positive Impact On Marines
In support of today’s Marines and their professional development, MCA&F provided a unit library to Charlie Company, 1st Battalion, 5th Marines.
On behalf of all the Marines in Charlie Company, 1st Battalion 5th Marines, I want to express our sincere appreciation to you and the Marine Corps Association/Foundation! Getting our professional library up and running was no small feat. However, with your cooperation and the superb support and assistance of the MCA/F, our Battalion now has a nearly complete professional library.
I also want to thank you for making the time to come out to San Mateo to personally brief the Marines from the Battalion on the Marine Corps Association/Foundation and its purpose and mission. Although, it was not an ideal "classroom" setting, we ALL enjoyed your enthusiasm, passion and the information you presented. I was informed that lots of Marines stayed around to "sign up" after your MOTIVATING brief! Again thank you for your time and support for the Marines and for continuing to "fight the good fight”!

This testimonial was the result of MCA&F’s West Coast Representative, SgtMaj Frank Pulley, USMC (Ret) briefing Marines in San Mateo, California on the benefits of MCA&F and the continual support the Association and Foundation provides for today’s Marines. His brief motivated Marines to join the Association that supports Marines and provides numerous opportunities for professional development.
The Marine Corps Association & Foundation is the preeminent organization dedicated to Marine professional development. To help develop more knowledgeable Marines and ultimately, a more effective amphibious force-in-readiness, the Commanders’ Unit Library Program provides commanders and their units with vital intellectual resources from the Marine Corps Professional Reading Program and other selected material. In 2011, MCA&F delivered comprehensive libraries to 271 Marine units to establish or augment their Commanders’ Unit Libraries and has provided an additional 94 libraries to Marine units with the aim of fostering professional development.
MCA&F –the professional association for ALL Marines is dedicated to support Marine excellence and professional development. Join MCA&F and help us continue to make a positive impact on our Marines. Membership dues and retail purchases at The MARINE Shop provide support to MCA&F programs. As a member, you will have access to our flagship magazines, Marine Corps Gazette and Leatherneck, to stay informed on issues affecting Marines as well as unfolding Marine Corps history. Members receive other benefits including discounts with affinity partners and member value pricing at MCA&F retail locations.
Thank you so much for taking the extra time and making the extra effort
to ship another hat to me for my husband last week. The second hat
arrived last Thursday... and he was tickled with it. Although it may be
"only a hat" it is a very special hat in many ways. He will always be a
proud Marine dad, and your kindness is very much appreciated.
Just wanted to let you know that I got the sword yesterday with time to spare. It showed up unscathed due to the excellent packing job despite the rough postal process. And most importantly it looks great and the Bahraini’s couldn’t be happier! Thanks again for all of your assistance.

It is ALWAYS a pleasure to work with a consummate professional such as SgtMaj (Ret.) Frank Pulley. As the company 1stSgt for Hotel Company, MCT, SOI (West), I’ve attended a number of his briefs and one can visually see a positive change in the student’s attention levels as the SgtMaj delivers his presentation. The SgtMaj truly cares about the Marines and the Marine Corps and represents the MCA in an extremely admirable manner. It has been my experience that all Marines (including myself) benefit from the experience of attending a MCA presentation. And regardless of rank or years of experience, Marines should always seek to increase their level of proficiency and knowledge and MCA briefs provide us with that opportunity.

Thank you for all your help over the phone today. Planning a Marine Corps Ball is a lot of time, energy and work.

Thank you so much for your help!!! I think you should be commended for your excellent customer service! You were extremely helpful and I was about to get upset about my order but you handled it before I could say anything. You are the best. Thanks again!!!
Congratulations. You are more responsive and informative than any other website contact I can recall. I appreciate that very much. It’s really nice to have someone like you at the MCA “front door.”

Thanks for the email; I purchased the two Marine Corps. Cups for my brother who served with the First Marine Div. in Vietnam . He was very pleased with the cups and I was very impressed with the purchase. The online catalog did not do the product the justice it deserved. Thanks again and I am sure you will hear from me in the future.
I want to relay my many thanks to everyone at Marine Corps Association and Military Historical Tours for providing me the opportunity to experience such a wonderful trip to Russia. Had I not won this trip through MCA I may have never taken advantage of such fantastic travels. The group, the Russian Tour guide (Oleg Alexandrov) and Charlie Dunn were wonderful companions during the trip. It will be a memory I will cherish all of my remaing days on this earth.
Again, Many thanks and Semper Fidelis!

I received my Dress Blues I ordered from The Marine
Shop in the mail today. And I just wanted to write and tell everyone there
that you all did a great job! Everyone from the tailors, to the customer
service reps. I am highly impressed with the quality and tailoring of your
uniforms. I will definitely keep coming back to The Marine Shop in the
future for uniforms!
I'm so pleased to see all the great merchandise you are stocking and the awesome promotions. Your store was dissappointing a few years ago and I shopped only at Sgt Grit.
Now, I can find what I am looking for with you guys.
