Our Marines

Recently found this in my inbox. I wish they were going to be somewhere nearby!
This is going to be the BEST commercial!


I am contacting you and your blog readers on behalf of, a new web site from the United States Marine Corps. In the past you’ve used your site to discuss Marine Corps-related issues. So I’d like to let you know about content we’re posting on specifically for sites like yours.

The site launches in conjunction with an epic new television commercial now in production for the Marine Corps. Marines will travel across the country, carrying their message of fidelity, service and pride to all Americans. Along the way, we will be stopping in several cities to produce the commercial and interact with Americans.

While the site started just a couple days ago, it is only the beginning of what it will be. In the coming weeks we’ll share the stories of Marines, past and present, along with compelling messages from parents, relatives, friends and just average Americans who recognize the importance of the Marine Corps. In a few weeks we’ll open the doors for people to submit their own stories of Why I Serve and Why It Matters. Most importantly, all of this content is there for you to use. At present, that means RSS feeds and dozens of images. Soon we will provide embeddable video and user generated content as well.

One last note, in addition to visiting the site and sharing content, we would like to have you visit us if you are close to any of the cities where we will be filming. You will find a list of the locations on the site. If you need more details, such as specific location and time, please email me. If you decide to come out and join us, please be sure to find me. I’d like to meet with you and learn more about what we can do to help you share the Marine Corps story on your site.

Thank you for your time.
