“We stand by them, as they once stood for us”
At MRF, our commitment is life-long, our services are continual and our support is all-encompassing. We offer assistance to all combat veterans and ex-servicemen of the Marine Reconnaissance Group who’ve had their share of warfare and are now looking for a quiet and peaceful life with their loved ones. Our MRF Community initiative offers all that and much more.
For several years, the MRF group has been the leading support group for the esteemed Marine Reconnaissance Forces and has catered to the needs of active duty personnel, wounded personnel and their families, and deceased and Missing in Action personnel families. With a range of comprehensive and tailor-made services, we have helped several veterans reintegrate back in to the civilian life and cope with any post-war distress and trauma.
The Marine Reconnaissance Foundation is committed to the health and wellness of our operators, veterans, and their families.

For several veterans, Post Traumatic Stress Disorder (PTSD) is a major challenge. It affects their cognitive abilities and is detrimental to their family lives. In this regard, MRF offers a care coalition and support program for curbing and eliminating PTSD and other combat stress from the lives of retired servicemen. This helps them cope with their losses and become productive members of the society. To learn more on PTSD and its controls, please click here.
