The Marine Corps' Marine For Life program is looking for New Mexicans to serve as mentors for Marine veterans.
Marine For Life mentors can be key in helping Marine Corps veterans navigate the way ahead and succeed in civilian life.
There is no requirement to have served in the military — just a desire to be available to Marines looking for advice and to benefit from others' experience.
Experts in various fields can share their expertise, as can those people with business skills or knowledge of what it takes to transition to civilian life.
To learn more about mentoring Marine Corps veterans, go to www.MarineForLife.org
and click "Mentors"; email Marine For Life's New Mexico representative, Capt. Michael Kozeliski
, at NewMexico1@GoMarineForLife.org
; or call him at 575-415-4645.
