On August 7, 2002
The Marines landed on the World Wide Web.

Welcome to Seacoast Marines.com. A website dedicated to all
the Marines living in the Seacoast Area who have served in the Corps.
This is a site for Marines who served during any of our Nation's Wars,
and in times of peace. Our Nation is once again at War and we have
many Marines from the Seacoast who are currently serving in IRAQ
and AFGHANISTAN. It is vitally important that we remind those
who may have forgotten these brave Marines and their families.

Let us never turn our backs on our fellow Marines.

Let us forever remember those brave Marines who are
no longer with us and let us keep their memories alive.

In the upcoming weeks and months we plan on featuring local
Marines from every time period from the Civil War to the current
Global War on Terrorism in Iraq and Afghanistan.

We will post events as they come up and get you the skivvie
way in advance. Remember, This is your site Marine.
We need photos and stories and any information you
might have, that will make this site better.

As always Marines
Semper Fi
