HQMC (MR), QUANTICO, VA --

Spring of 2012, Mrs. Bonnie Amos, spouse of the Commandant of the Marine Corps, Gen. James F. Amos, established “The First Lady of the Marine Corps Recommended Reading List.”  This project was designed to provide Military spouses with resources specific to understanding and adapting to the challenges presented in the life of military service.  The list is a relevant, flexible, and useful tool for military families.   As our families’ needs change, so will the list.  Therefore, we announce the updated First Lady of the Marine Corps Recommended Reading List.

There are several events scheduled to promote the reading list and its authors.  Confirmed at present is the rollout book signing event with Amos and two authors (Mollie Gross and Shunsee Wilson) at MCX Miramar on 13 February, 11:00 AM – 2:00 PM.  The new titles for 2014 are in stores now, though not all titles are available at all MCX locations. Marine Corps libraries are also adding the books to their collections.  Requests for larger quantities of books for clubs or organizations should be addressed with the local MCX store manager.
