Description

L.I.N.K.S. for Spouses: Your LINK to the Corps.

As a spouse new to the Corps, being thrust into a new community and military culture can lead to endless questions from “Does my husband’s rank apply to me?” to “How should I prepare for his upcoming deployments?”

On your journey to discover the answers to these questions and better acclimate to a new community, attend a Lifestyle Insights, Networking, Knowledge and Skills workshop, also known as L.I.N.K.S.

L.I.N.K.S. is an interactive acculturation program to Marine Corps life and the local installation where participants learn about Corps history, traditions and rank; local installation resources, services, and benefits; military pay; separation and deployment; communication styles; and how to invest in their community. There are L.I.N.K.S. Trainings for Marines, spouses, children, teens, and parents of Marines, with distinct information for each curriculum, and different methods of instruction based on the audience.

Each of our morning workshops will cover two of eight topics. Attend all 8 workshops to receive a certificate, and become eligible for the L.I.N.K.S. Mentor Orientation. (Renew every 3 years)

Topics include:

USMC History & Etiquette

Military Pay, LES

Deployment & Separation

Getting Along: Maintaining healthy relationships

Crossroads: Moving in the military

Staying Marine: USMC Career Progression

Investing in community:. Volunteering
