What do the Marines call the Navy?
If I had a nickel for every time I’ve heard that joke as a Navy wife, I’d have a lot of nickels. As much as they like to tease each other, each branch has a ton of respect for the other and pride in their respective branches. In fact, Marines may have the most branch pride out of the entire military. You can almost hear “Oorah!” every time you drive by a Marine base. That’s why it makes perfect sense to send a Marine care package when your loved one is away from home!
Marine Care Package Themes
Much like an Army care package, a Marine care package can definitely take advantage of pre-printed camo paper or patriotic paper (stars, stripes, red, white and blue) to cover the flaps. You can always make use of patriotic sayings (home of the free because of the brave), but if you’re looking for something more Marine-related, check out one of these sayings!
- His/Her boots are tan, cammies are green…I sure love my Marine!
- My heart belongs to someone in the Marine Corps
- Semper Fi!
- I heart my Marine!
- Stay safe, sleep with a Marine at night!
- The few, the proud, the Marines
What to put in a Marine care package?
In addition to many of the care package staples, you could add a few items specific to your loved one’s branch. Things like uniform items or branch PT gear would be fun additions to the box. You could also add a Marine-themed movie or book to the box. Last, but not least, consider sending items from military-owned or affiliated businesses.
