Chicago, IL (PRWEB) October 22, 2013
Leatherneck.com, the country’s largest commercial Marine-only news and information website, has entered into a partnership with the Marine Corps Community Services (MCCS) forming a vital link between the two sites.
The announcement of the partnership serves three important purposes:
1. To inform Marines and their families that Leatherneck.com will begin to regularly feature news and information about MCCS programs and services.
2. To let advertisers know that Leatherneck.com is the best way to reach active duty, reserve, and retired Marines and their families.
3. To announce that as part of this agreement, Leatherneck.com will become a sponsor of many MCCS programs throughout the world.
“Leatherneck.com will be an additional communications channel for the MCCS,” said Gary Weisbaum, Chief Operating Officer of Leatherneck.com. Providing a platform for a larger audience to receive “real time” information on MCCS programs and services is very important to both MCCS and the Marine Corps. It is a very exciting opportunity for us, because the long term growth potential of Leatherneck.com is greatly enhanced.
