Portsmouth (New Hampshire) Young Marines

We are New Hampshire's only Young Marine unit.  We are a very active unit promoting the Young Marine core values of Discipline, Leadership and Teamwork.  We pride ourselves in the high academic and physical fitness standards maintained by our members.  Unit membership is open to young men and women from ages 8 - 18 years of age with current members ranging from age 10 - 18.  What we are not is a program for troubled youth.  If you can not live the core values then you may not have what it takes to call yourself a Young Marine - or do you?
