Welcome to the 1 Marine 1 Life Foundation.  At 1 Marine 1 Life, we look to deliver a compelling message directly to the community that hopefully inspires community members to get involved. Whether it is donating a backpack or cutting hair, it all ends up being the work of one person – YOU. Yesterday's term, it takes a village, is still true, but we contend that in today's fast paced social media complex, it only takes one inspired individual to make a difference.

Are you ready to make a difference?

What inspires you? Do you have something you want to do for your community? 1 Marine 1 Life Foundation's mission is to inspire one person at a time to serve the community, one project at a time.

If you're ready to make a difference – any difference - please contact me or our volunteer Board of Directors about how, whether with our projects or one of your own. You can also learn more about the story behind 1 Marine 1 Life by checking out our about us page.

I look forward to meeting you.
