Laura Santiago has a mission and that is to build the New Jersey chapter of the Women Marines Association. Santiago a Marine veteran became president of the NJ-3 chapter last year and is looking to find her fellow Marines.
The Women Marines Association is a national group (501©3) comprised of women who have or currently are serving honorably in the United States Marine Corps. It is the only organization of women Marines in existence for those who have earned the Eagle, Globe and Anchor. Currently the chapter rotates to accommodate the geographic area so all will be able to attend a few meetings each year. As the membership grows they hope to have other chapters formed.
These Marines are an elite force comprised by generations of Marines. It encompasses all ranks and ages with our oldest being 100. The next convention and profession development conference will be held in Portland, OR in 2016.
