The Young Marines is not a recruiting tool for the US Marine Corps, but a number of our young people do go on to serve in the US Marines.

More training materials and forms are located in the Young Marines online library on the national website. Check there for a wealth of information.

The Conservation Ribbon must be earned to be promoted to YM/SSgt. This award involves several projects and is thus complicated to earn and can take months to finish. It can be earned at any stage in a Young Marine's career.
We've put together some forms to help in planning for this award.
We suggest Young Marines start on it early to prevent getting stuck at the rank of YM/Sgt.
