Every Marine has a story to tell, and nothing brings Americans closer nor lends more understanding, than sharing those experiences. Americans can hear what it’s like to be a Marine and what leads young men and women to serve their nation. What was it like serving in Iraq or Afghanistan? What prompts someone to become a Marine?
The Marine Corps supports speaking engagements for community events across the country, from small-town civic organizations to big-city national conventions. If you are a business executive, an educator, a member of a civic organization or a conference organizer looking for a speaker, Marine Forces Reserve can help you connect with a Marine.
