MARCOA Publishing, LLC is proud to announce its partnership with the Armed Services YMCA as the exclusive publisher supporting troops at 59 of the nation’s largest military installations across CONUS, Hawaii, Alaska and Puerto Rico.
Dating to 1861, the Armed Services YMCA has a long-standing tradition of providing hands-on, innovative, specialized programs and support services to military service members and their families with a particular focus on junior-enlisted men and women, on and off the military base – the individuals on the front lines of defending our nation. The ASYMCA programs are offered at little or no cost and do not require dues or membership fees. The organization has only about 500 employees; more than 10,000 volunteers work 112,000 hours, saving the ASYMCA more than $2.5 million as it offers programs and services to more than 500,000 members annually.
MARCOA is proud to join this valuable tradition and looks forward to supporting it for many years to come. With the Armed Services YMCA, MARCOA will publish newcomer and welcome information to be distributed in print and electronic formats to military bases, military service members, and their families across the United States.
William D. French, VADM, USN (ret), President and CEO of the Armed Services YMCA of the USA says of the agreement, “We are excited about the possibilities this agreement provides. MARCOA produces great base guides, full of useful information and now ASYMCA will be included. Most of all, the partnership extends the reach of the Armed Services YCMA. Information about our services and programs will now be in the hands and homes of all service members and spouses on every base where we have a presence. That’s great news, because if more people know who we are and what we have to offer, we can provide more services and programs to support more troops and families."
MARCOA, established in 1966, is the country’s most trusted and experienced third-party civilian enterprise publisher. Serving more than 150 military installations nationwide, MARCOA sets the industry standard for publishing companies, and military relocation information. With MARCOA’s successful expansion from traditional print media to digital media, military base information, and military discount information for any PCS is easily available at http://www.MyBaseGuide.com. Additionally, the free MyBaseGuide Mobile App is available in the Google, Windows or Apple app stores.
“This is a proud day as MARCOA proclaims its support of the Armed Services YMCA. We are genuinely thrilled to partner with and support the ASYMCA and the hundreds of thousands of lives they touch. Our mission at MARCOA is to help ease the burden and improve the lives of those that protect our country in any way we can, and we see this new partnership as one way to give back and better the greater good,” said Matt Benedict, President of MARCOA Publishing.
