If this is your first issue of Operation PAL™ News, we'd like to welcome you. If you're a returning reader, welcome back!
Veteran's Day is just around the corner; let's remember to thank those who have given of themselves in service to this country.
We do continuous mailings as cards and letters come in so put some sunshine in an envelope today. Our severely wounded Marines and their families will appreciate your support and encouragement.

Operation PAL™ Marines at Marine Corps Marathon and 10K
Highlight This Issue
A few of our current and former Operation PAL™ Marines participated in the annual Marine Corps Marathon and 10K in Washington D.C. on October 25th.
The Marathon gives our wounded and ill an attainable goal and Marines produce a very competitive bunch. They work hard in their physical therapy and push each other to succeed because they want to do well in the race.
MarineParents.com sponsored two former Operation PAL™ Marines this year. John and Josef both received cards and letters through Operation PAL™ and have since improved enough to be up to the challenge presented by the Marathon.
Thank you so very much for remembering our wounded and ill warriors when you write and pray. Your kindness is most appreciated.
