8th & I SMP

8th & I SMP The Official page of the 8th & I Single Marine Program The Single Marine Program (SMP) was established to provide a forum for Marines to identify quality of life ideas and issues along with recommended solutions.

After all, change starts from the bottom up. Through participation in the planning and coordination of programs and activities, single Marines have an opportunity to create an enjoyable and rewarding environment for themselves at the Marine Barracks here in Washington D.C. This is an official Marine Corps page. However, the appearance of hyperlinks does not constitute endorsement by the U. S. Marine Corps.

USO-Metro is looking for volunteers

We're slowly reopening and looking for volunteers! Although our volunteers are eager to return, a number of them fall within the vulnerable population, so they can't come back until a vaccine is widely available. We normally do not recruit from the population we serve; however, we have a cadre of active duty members and military spouses who really enjoy volunteering for USO! So we're reaching out to you! We're seeking volunteers for the following locations:

*USO Warrior and Family Center Fort Belvoir, Fort Belvoir, VA
*USO Warrior and Family Center Bethesda, NSA Bethesda, MD
*USO Fort Meade, Fort Meade, MD
*USO Quantico-West, Quantico, VA
*USO Honor Guard Lounge, JBM-HH, Arlington, VA
*USO Dulles Airport Lounge, VA
*USO Reagan Airport Lounge, VA
*USO BWI Airport Lounge, MD
*USO-Metro's Field Operations (on the road providing programs and services around the National Capital Region)

Single Marine Program

The Single Marine Program (SMP) serves as the voice for single Marines in identifying concerns, developing initiatives, and providing recommendations through advocacy, recreational activities, special events and community involvement. The SMP is comprised of single Marines who represent their Unit and want to make a difference within their unit and on their installation. Lead by young leaders, the SMP functions to support single Marines’ leisure interests and Quality of Life (QOL) concerns. A single Marine’s QOL concerns include, but are not limited to, activities and issues that directly or indirectly influence personal readiness, morale, living environment, and personal growth and development. SMP is offered aboard 21 Marine Corps installations and throughout Marine Forces Reserve.

2020 marks the 25th anniversary of the SMP! Watch the Marine Minute below for a special message from the Sergeant Major of the Marine Corps to commemorate this milestone.
