Marine Graduation Foundation
www.usmcgrad.org
If you don't have the money to get to the graduation, apply for assistance. People donate, applications are reviewed and if all goes well we will help you with travel costs so that your Marine does not have to stand alone on graduation day. Please remember funds are almost always limited. There are many families to help and many times not enough money to help everyone. If you can get to the graduation without our help, please save the funds for the people who wonder how they are going to get the money to have enough gas to drive to the graduation.

Bike transportation​

Bikes 4 Vets Project Inland Empire (San Bernardino, CA)
https://sites.google.com/site/bikes4vetsprojectinlandempire/
Bikes 4 Vets Project Inland Empire was started by Army veteran Joseph Mena and his wife Aida Mena, founders of Homeless Veterans First Inc., to assist military veterans in need of transportation, by providing them with a donated bicycle. This project is geared toward empowering our military veterans to become independent. The goal is to ensure that our veterans have reliable transportation to keep medical appointments and travel to work. Bicycles also serve as a form of physical exercise. To qualify to receive a bicycle, each veteran must demonstrate a need for transportation.
