Four Reasons to Join the Single Marine Program in 2024

 Single? Geographic bachelor? The Single Marine Program (SMP) provides a place to bond with other Marines while having fun and making a difference.

Awesome Activities

SMP events include paintball battles, deep sea fishing trips, cruises, BBQs, sports tournaments, competitions, and more. New events are always being added so be sure to stop by the local Recreation Center, home of the SMP, regularly for all the details.

Show Leadership Skills

Every major installation has an SMP council that meets regularly and represents the interests of single Marines. Get involved and make a difference by representing your unit. This is a great opportunity to develop leadership skills and work closely with both SMP staff and the installation sergeant major.

Make an Impact

Being part of the Single Marine Program allows your voice to be heard on issues that affect the quality of everyday life in the Corps. Have an idea on how to improve the quality of life for fellow Marines? As part of the SMP, you can turn these ideas into solutions.

Give Back

Single Marines contribute tens of thousands of community service hours each year. SMP gives Marines the opportunity to volunteer for Habitat for Humanity, Toys for Tots, beach cleanups, or veteran home visits.

“My goal for 2024 is to engage as many units as possible . . . to include as many Marines from different units so that the Marines have the opportunity to interact with people who they wouldn’t usually meet or see on a daily basis.,” says Cpl Isaiah Diaz, Marine Corps Base Quantico SMP President. “The more people they meet, the more friends they can possibly make, and hopefully that boosts their spirits and gets them out of their rooms.”

Make a difference and represent the Marine Corps in your local community. Get involved with the SMP. Connect with your installation SMP Coordinator or installation sergeant major to learn more.
