NEW INFORMATION FOR MEMBERS OF MCIA INC.
HELP A MARINE TO READ
Help A Marine 0231 Hopeful to Read!
Donate Your Old Books!
Marines new to the Navy-Marine Intelligence Training Center (NMITC) at Dam Neck awaiting training in the MAGTF Intelligence Specialist-Entry course need books to help improve their reading skills. Used paperbacks are preferred and don't have to be Marine Corps, warfare, or intelligence-related. Fiction/novels, non-fiction, sports, self-improvement, and other works suitable for casual reading in the barracks off-duty are most welcome.
Donations are tax-deductible since the Marine Corps Intelligence Association, Incorporated, is a 501 (c) (19) non-profit Armed Forces veterans' organization, per our IRS letter dated 22 March 1994, EIN 33-0570923.
If you are purchasing books from a book seller, please keep your check/form of payment receipt for tax purposes. If you are making a non-monetary donation, you are responsible for evaluating fair market value for tax deduction purposes. This is most easily accomplished by researching used book prices on the internet and making a personal copy for retention and use in income tax preparation.
Please mail book donations directly to: LtCol Ray Leach, USMC (Ret.) 2549 Townfield Lane Virginia Beach, VA 23454
If you'd like to contact Ray directly before sending your books, please call him at his Marine Corps Intelligence Schools/ITEP Program Manager office: (757) 492-0578 or his cell: (757) 831-3370.
A NOTE FROM THE DIRECTOR OF MEMBERSHIP
MCIA Inc. is looking for a FEW GOOD LIAISONS
MCIA, Inc is seeking volunteers to serve as liaisons to active duty Marine Intelligence Organizations- ideal candidates are former/retired active duty intelligence professionals of any rank or discipline who live and work in the geographic areas listed below. Liaisons would be the local “face” and “voice” of MCIA, Inc to active duty intelligence Marines, serve as a conduit for information flow between the Association and active duty points of contact, as well as having the potential to participate in social and command events involving intelligence Marines.
The MCIA, Inc Liaison plan was briefed to senior active duty intelligence leadership during the Fall HQMC Intelligence Operational Advocacy Group (OAG) in Quantico, September 2013. The response was very positive, and command G-2’s, intelligence unit commanders, and senior intelligence Marines in service/national organizations have been asked to solicit volunteers to serve as active duty points of contact within their organizations.
If you are interested in this opportunity to interact with and serve active duty intelligence Marines while promoting the benefits and goals of our organization, contact the MCIA Inc Membership Committee Chair soonest- John Walls (firstname.lastname@example.org; phone (919) 346-1394).

NON CORPORATE SPONSOR FRIENDS OF MCIA INC & THE MARINE CORPS
The Cold War Museum is a 501(c)(3) charitable organization dedicated to education, preservation, and research on the global, ideological, and political confrontations between East and West from the end of World War II to the dissolution of the Soviet Union.
The three main goals of the Cold War Museum are to:
Develop permanent Cold War Museums to preserve local and regional Cold War history with the headquarters and National Museum facility located in the Washington, DC metropolitan area.
Erect Cold War Memorials with the National Cold War Memorial located near Arlington National Cemetery to honor the men and women who were killed as part of Cold War events and activities.
Establish a reference library and research center to help maintain the historical accuracy of the Cold War.
Together We Served is a fantastic idea with an even better web site. We recommend all Marines visit this secure site, login and become members. Reconnect with your OCS/Boot camp buddies, or those you have simply lost contact with over the years. At this site you will find great photos, stories and one of the best ways available to stay in touch. For those MCIA members who were in other MOS's before Intel, TWS will be a tremendous trip down memory lane.
|In keeping with the 32d Commandant’s philosophical perspective that, “The simplicity of our lifelong title— Marine —brings forth association with our past and our present, as well as the promise of our future”, the Marine Corps Intelligence Association Inc. strives to bring together all Intelligence Marines under one banner of fraternity and professionalism.|
