Keep The Connection

As a Bootneck, you can deal with situations most civilians can't even imagine. But returning to civilian life presents a whole new set of challenges - and when you're facing that for the first time, it can be touch to cope with. Keeping your Royal Marines Association membership means you don't have to do it all by yourself. It gives you the contacts on the outside that can help you to find a job, and practical advice. Above all, it keeps you connected with the Corps family (which always look after its own) and associated networks. As a member you can also benefit from:
