L.I.N.K.S. is an acronym that stands for Lifestyle Insights, Networking, Knowledge, and Skills. It is an interactive acculturation program to Marine Corps life and the local installation. Participants learn about Corps history and rank, local installation resources, services, and benefits, military pay, separation and deployment, crossroad options, communication styles, investing in the community and Marine Corps traditions. Partnerships are made with several services and personnel to include career planners, chaplains, and L.I.N.K.S. Mentors. Additional family readiness training opportunities are available through LifeSkills and Readiness and Deployment Support training. To learn more about available classes, contact MARFORRES Marine Corps Community Services. L.I.N.K.S. is an official Marine Corps program which helps families connect to the Corps.
