Why our members enjoy being part of the RMA

I am giving something back. In my first job I relied on the Marines for security. I am now in a position with my work and lifestyle to help. I have been involved with helping a lad find a job in London, the local branch and fundraising... I am now starting to focus more on the welfare side of things. It is nice to help someone and see it make a difference.
Meeting squaddies, old oppos, also recruits and officers that I took through training. Commemorate those who are no longer with us and support those suffering injuries.
