The Single Marine Program (SMP) contributes to the improvement of total force readiness, job performance, and retention by supporting the enhancement of Quality of Life (QOL) for all single Marines, including unaccompanied Marines. The SMP includes all single service members aboard Marine Corps Installations. The SMP serves as the voice for single Marines in identifying QOL concerns, developing QOL initiatives, and providing recommendations through advocacy, recreational activities, special events and community involvement, which enhance morale and well-being. Quality of Life includes all activities and issues that directly or indirectly influence personal readiness, morale, living environment, and personal growth and development. The SMP incorporates commanders and leaders in the SMP QOL process and provides the means to be involved and active.
