Marine Executive Association (MEA)


Marine Executive Association (MEA) – "Networking Core Values"

Like many other organizations, the Marine Corps is known for taking care of its own. What sets the

Marine Corps apart is the high standards of professionalism, discipline, and core values that frame the Marine's character. Taking care of our own is not just a catchphrase, but also an MEA commitment of: 

  • "Marines helping Marines" with a network of over 22,500 connections and opportunities.
  • Shared esprit de corps experiences and inspired value through resume reviews and mentoring.
  • Preparing Marines in transitioning towards a desired profession and return on investment (ROI).
  • Supporting our pledge of "Connecting Marine's Talent with Job Opportunities."

The Marine Executive Association (MEA), a non-profit 501(c)(19), veterans' organization that has been supporting transitioning Marines (active and reserve) for 40-years. MEA is a national, membership, volunteer, non-profit organization of former, retired, and current active-duty Marines who have agreed to share their job hunting and hiring experiences with fellow Marines of all ranks – embracing our culture of "Once a Marine, Always a Marine" –translation Marine for life!

MEA's mission is to assist Marines seeking transition assistance from active duty or reserve/retired status, leaving the Corps at the end of obligated service, or moving from one civilian career to another.

NOTE: MEA does not place Marines in jobs; however, we do provide resources through our network of "Marines helping Marines" seeking assistance as one transitions toward their future employment.

Transition assistance includes:

  • Resume review
  • Job hunting tips and tools
  • Job posting by employers
  • Resume posting by Marines
  • Resume and interview coaching by volunteer Marine

The MEA membership provides a weekly E-Mail list of newly posted jobs (for Marines) and resumes (for employers). Sign up for our weekly letter and other updates below.

  • NAVNET members have extensive technical and managerial experience across the full spectrum of experience levels from journeyman to executive.

Our Competitive Edge

For Individual NAVNET Members – We maintain a member database that gives each individual access to other NAVNET members in myriad industries and companies.

San Diego Military Advisory Council (SDMAC)

The San Diego Military Advisory Council (SDMAC) was founded in 2004 as a 501(c)(6) non-profit organization with a mission to support and promote the mutual business and other interests of the military, their quality of life, and the defense community in the San Diego area.  SDMAC advocates on behalf of our military, those who serve or have served, and their families in the greater San Diego region.

Since 2004, SDMAC has filled a vital role in advancing the partnership and communication between the military, elected and appointed officials, and the business community, while simultaneously working to enhance recognition of the military's many economic and social contributions to the San Diego area.

Our signature events are the SDMAC monthly breakfasts, which take place on the third Wednesday of every month and feature prominent speakers from the Department of Defense, Navy, Marine Corps, and Coast Guard. These events provide both the opportunity to hear firsthand knowledge from military leadership and to network with more than 300 military and civilian business leaders of the San Diego community.  SDMAC also hosts an annual Achievement Awards ceremony to honor those who show exemplary service to our military community.

Veterans Beer Club, San Diego (VBC)

The Veterans Beer Club was formed in 2016 by three retired Marine Corps veterans who are passionate about helping Veterans transition into civilian life after the military.

The VBC purpose is three-fold: first, assist transitioning service members through networking, discussions of important events, introductions to industries across the region, and ensuring service members are personally introduced to leaders in aforementioned groups. The VBC believes by supporting, vetting, and assisting noteworthy organizations that legitimately help veterans this will also help the entire San Diego community. Second, translate our military service to community service, ensuring we continue our leadership into non-profit, volunteer, and civil service organizations. Lastly, continue our sense of camaraderie, thus safeguarding the bonds established during our military service, and ensuring there is a safety net of resources for veterans. VBC will continue to interface with senior veterans and business leaders in the community, and leverage their passion for assisting fellow veterans. Also, since the Marine Corps was born in a bar in 1775, having the VBC rotate amongst the 100+ breweries in San Diego is only fitting for our group.

Paraphrasing Ben Franklin, "Beer is proof God loves us and wants us to have a happy transition."

We should all pay homage to those wonderful words of wisdom.

The bar is open. Semper Fi!

Vets 2 Industry

Our passion is to help the military community…

I started Vets2Industry to provide a free resource library for the military community – active, guard, reserve, veteran, military-spouse, dependent children, Blue-Star & Gold-Star Families, and caregivers – so they know which organizations provide free services and benefits.

V2I also serves to break the circle of ignorance by listing companies that have opportunities for veterans, those that have specific military hiring programs, those that are on the 100 Military Friendly companies list, and those that selflessly provide Fortune 500 mentors for a year to transitioning service members through their partnership with American Corporate Partners.

The goal is to educate all 220,000 to 240,000 transitioning service members each year and their dependents on free resources to ease their transition and life needs, and more importantly, provide hope.

Wounded Warrior Project (WWP)

Wounded Warrior Project (WWP) began in 2003 as a small, grassroots effort providing simple care and comfort items to the hospital bedsides of the first wounded service members returning home from the conflicts in Iraq and Afghanistan. As their post-service needs evolved, so have our programs and services. Today, through our direct programs in mental health, career counseling, and long-term rehabilitative care, along with our advocacy efforts, we improve the lives of millions of warriors and their families.

This effort requires the passion and commitment of friends, supporters, and like-minded organizations that enable us to fulfill our mission. With their collaboration and support, we strive to ensure that when those who serve come home, they’re afforded every opportunity to be as successful as a civilian as they were in the military.
