Marine Corps 101 for Spouses
Lifestyle Insights, Networking, Knowledge and Skills (L.I.N.K.S.) is an acculturation program designed to help you navigate the Marine Corps and your local base. This class was developed by spouses, and is taught by spouse mentors. It’s the “I wish I’d known…” class full of tips about the Marine Corps Lifestyle. We talk about everything from what to do at colors to what different pay would look like and what resources are available to you. This is not only the knowledge you need, but the opportunity to meet new people and connect with others where you are!
See this PDF for the L.I.N.K.S. Handbook (6MB).
