WASHINGTON: The commandant of the Marine Corps announced April 11 his selection for the next sergeant major of the Marine Corps.
"I'm pleased to announce Sgt. Maj. Micheal P. Barrett as the 17th sergeant major of the Marine Corps," said Gen. James Amos, commandant of the Marine Corps. "Sgt. Maj. Barrett, through his long and distinguished service to our nation, has demonstrated that he is particularly well-suited to serve as my senior enlisted advisor through the challenges ahead. My wife Bonnie and I welcome him and his wife Susan and look forward to serving with them."   Barrett will replace Sgt. Maj. Carlton W. Kent, who has served as the sergeant major of the Marine Corps since April 25, 2007. The relief and appointment ceremony and retirement of Kent is scheduled for June 9 at Marine Barracks Washington.  Barrett recently returned from Afghanistan where he served as the sergeant major of Regional Command Southwest and I Marine Expeditionary Force (Forward). He currently serves as the sergeant major of 1st Marine Division at Marine Corps Base Camp Pendleton, Calif.    Barrett’s official biography can be found at:
http://www.i-mef.usmc.mil/external/1stmardiv/command/biographies/sgtmaj/micheal.barrett.jsp   The post of sergeant major of the Marine Corps was established in 1957 as the senior enlisted advisor to the commandant of the Marine Corps, the first such post in any of the branches of the United States Armed Forces. The sergeant major of the Marine Corps is selected by the commandant, and typically serves a four-year term, though his service is at the pleasure of the commandant.

WASHINGTON: The Department of Veterans Affairs (VA) is reaching out to Veterans in crisis and their families in a new public service announcement to raise awareness about suicide prevention resources, such as the Veterans Crisis Line at 1-800-273-TALK (8255).
"As more Veterans return from Iraq and Afghanistan, the critical need for mental health care is rising," said Sonja V. Batten, assistant deputy chief patient care services officer for mental health. "VA is increasing its efforts to reach out to Veterans in need and their families, to inform them about available services and programs."

The new television spot encourages Veterans in crisis to call the crisis hotline number at 1-800-273-TALK (8255) and then push 1 on their telephone keypad to reach a trained VA mental health professional who can assist the Veteran 24 hours a day, seven days a week.   "Suicide is preventable," said Batten. "Every Veteran suicide is tragic and regardless of the numbers or rates, one Veteran suicide is too many. We feel the responsibility to continue to spread the word throughout the nation that suicide prevention is everyone’s business."
So far, more than 379,000 people have called the hotline, and more than 200,000 of these callers have identified themselves as Veterans, family members or friends of Veterans. The hotline has led to more than 13,000 rescues of actively suicidal Veterans.   The hotline also operates an online Veterans Chat program, which provides Veterans, their families and friends with the ability to communicate anonymously online in real-time with a trained VA mental health professional. Veterans Chat can be accessed through the National Suicide Prevention Lifeline’s web page at
http://suicidepreventionlifeline.org/Veterans/Default.aspx.
Through the hotline and Veterans Chat, VA can connect Veterans and their families with important services, including suicide prevention coordinators, as well as general inpatient and outpatient psychiatric services at VA medical centers and community-based outpatient clinics.   The hotline, which is part of the National Suicide Prevention Lifeline, was started in 2007 as a partnership between VA and the Substance Abuse and Mental Health Services Administration (SAMHSA).   The PSA can be viewed at on YouTube.


                                                    Listen up Marines!

                               The Commandant of the Marine Corps has spoken!

No more "Former" Marines!

This is very important information to all of us. A quote from the Commandant, General James F. Amos: "A Marine is a Marine.” I set that policy two weeks ago - there's no such thing as a former Marine. You're a Marine, just in a different uniform and you're in a different phase of your life. But you'll always be a Marine because you went to Parris Island, San Diego or the hills of Quantico. There's no such thing as a “former Marine."

General James F. Amos,
Commandant of the Marine Corps
