So many times, when I ask Marines or Sailors what services are available to them in the Education Office, they say “Tuition Assistance”. My response “That is right, but do you know about all the other things we can help you with”? The answer is usually “no”. There is an assumption out there that all we do is Tuition Assistance (TA), but that is far from the truth. While we know how important TA is and we are happy to […]
A unique environment becomes present when the summer arrives. Sweat rates are high due to high humidity levels and high temperatures. People sweat to help keep their body at the optimum temperature of 98.6 degrees F. While sweating is good, dehydration or hypohydration are not beneficial. When you lose 1 percent of your body weight in sweat you are dehydrated and you know you are because you become thirsty. The more sever effects of dehydration include dry mouth, decreased fine […]
Everybody wants to hit the ball farther, so when winter rolls around and everyone actually loses distance, some of us are prone to push the panic button.

DANTES funds the Kuder Journey, which offers tailored career guidance to our military Service members. Effective career exploration and planning starts with finding out what an individual likes to do or interests, what he/she is confident in doing or skills, and what’s important to that individual in the workplace or work values. While the assessments don’t define a person or what their career should be, they’re extremely valuable in helping narrow the search and considering options which may not have […]

To avoid the “Spring rebuild” of their golf game and all of the frustration that accompanies it, golfers can use the winter months to keep their coordination and conditioning just by setting aside some time to play or practice twice a week. Even if it’s just 9 holes (2 hours max), hitting a small bucket of balls […]
As we continue into the fall season, the weather is starting to get a bit colder, the leaves are changing color, and we are settling into our fall routine of earlier mornings and shortened daylight for our evenings. Those with children have settled into the school year and evenings are filled with school work, after school activities, and preparations for the upcoming day. One thing is certain though, as the weather changes, our days spent engaging in outdoor […]

With the large number of military personnel transitioning out of the Corps and seeking to enter the civilian workforce, there is a need for skilled workers in the manufacturing industry. The Education Office is currently participating in the Manufacturing Skill Standards Council (MSSC) Pilot Program that is part of the White House’s New Credentialing Initiative designed to help military personnel to gain certifications that are beneficial within the Marine Corps, as well as to prepare them for job opportunities in […]
