Annually Required Parent Volunteerism - FY14 = 6 Hours


Parent Volunteer Hour Administrator - Mrs. Shawna Bolles shawnab66{at}hotmail.com


  • 1.Remember - six (6) hours per Young Marine or Recruit per fiscal year is required. Our fiscal year is October 1 to September 30.

  • 2.Tracking parent volunteer hours can only be done WHEN THEY ARE REPORTED IN. I cannot log/track what is not reported. Mrs. Lewis reports in some hours for events/drills/Study Nights that she is aware of, but she's so busy keeping up with your Young Marines'/Recruits' activities and record books that I would not count on her to get every last detail reported in. Our unit currently sits at 92 YMs/Recruits. There is a lot of administrative work to be done. Please ... make sure that you report in your own hours for every activity/event you volunteer to help support. This includes drills, chow assistance, Wed Study Nights, community service events, color guards, administrative support, fundraiser support (except fireworks), inventory assistance, vehicle assistance (repairs, driving, support), etc.

  • 3.If your volunteerism is something you do weekly (ie See's Candy) an email at the end of the month is fine as long as the dates and hour are all there. Otherwise it's much appreciated if you can email within a day or two of the activity/event with the date and hours worked.

  • 4.My email is shawnab66{at}hotmail.com.


  • Thank you, thank you!

    Unit Phone Number

    Should you need to call in and re-listen to a message,
    our phone number is 424-242-5296. An easy way to remember this is to think of it as 42 42 42 LCYM.

    We will also use this automated system to quickly and conveniently convey messages if drill and/or a Wednesday Study Night has been cancelled.

    Winter Weather Wear Regulations

    Field jackets are authorized. They are the preferred "winter coat" for the children. Field jackets need patches sewn on them in the exact same format that they have on their cammie blouses (though we do let them wear the field jacket if they've got an order in for patches and haven't received the patches yet). But to be in regulation, the patches all have to be on the field jacket. [NO PATCHES on Goretex field jackets. It breaks the integrity of the jacket.]

    Grey or red sweatshirts are authorized for layering warmth UNDER BOTH the red National tee and cammie blouse. These are the ONLY colors authorized by the CO/XO.

    Black gloves are authorized.

    School coats are not authorized. If your YM doesn't own their own field jacket, there are field jackets for "check out" in our Supply closet. Check in with Mrs. Miller if your YM needs to "check one out" for a drill or an event. She can be reached at supply{at}lcym.org.

    More About Us
    About the Young Marines
    ChesterThe Young Marines is the official youth program of the Marine Corps League. Founded in 1958 to promote the mental, moral and physical development of young Americans, the Young Marines offer a variety of activities specifically designed to develop greater self-esteem, discipline and self-confidence in its members.

    Character building is one of the most important objectives of the Young Marine program, and all of its activities emphasize the importance of honesty, courage, respect, loyalty, dependability, and a sense of devotion to God, country, community and family.

    In July of 1993, the United States Marine Corps officially designated the Young Marines program as “the focal organization for fulfilling its participation in the Department of Defense’s drug demand reduction activities.”

    Young Marines make a pledge to maintain a drug free lifestyle and are encouraged to influence family, friends, and schoolmates to share this commitment.
