Logo returns to group's site
Supplied to Survive received permission to return Marine Corps' emblem to Web page

OUT FRONT
BACK FROM IRAQ: Richmond-based soldiers return from duty. Page A1.

The Marine Corps' eagle, globe and anchor are back on Supplied to Survive's Web site.


"Basically, if we put a disclaimer on there, we can use the logo," said the group's founder, Steve Schulz.

"It turned out well," he said. The Marine Corps had told the Texas-based group to remove its famous emblem from the organization's Internet site, and last week the eagle, globe and anchor came down from Supplied to Survive's homepage.

Supplied to Survive has been raising donations for equipment to send to a Marine unit serving in Iraq.

That outfit includes Lance Cpl. Parke F. Smith II of Henrico, whose father, Preston Smith, has led Supplied to Survive's Richmond-area efforts.

The Marine Corps said the group could use the Marines' emblem on its Web site if Supplied to Survive also posted a statement that the Marines were not endorsing their work, Schulz said.

Schulz's son Steven serves in the same combat unit as Smith's.

The volunteer organization, located in Friendswood, Texas, has raised almost $50,000 in cash and in-kind contributions to help out the Marines of the Weapons Company, 3rd Battalion, 4th Marine Regiment and other Marine units in Iraq.

The Marine Corps ordinarily will agree to the use of its emblems by civilian organizations, but military regulations then require civilians to get the service's permission.

However, Marine Corps regulations also permit use of the Corps' emblem without special permission as long as the disclaimer is prominently displayed.

Other Web sites have also been ordered to take down the Marine emblem, according to a Marine Corps official.

Supplied to Survive was not aware that it needed permission to use the logo and apologized for the oversight.

The Corps has rejected the implication that its troops are inadequately equipped for combat duty.

"The gear that [Supplied to Survive] has provided, although [it] only augments the Marine's existing fight load, is much appreciated," said Marine Capt. Frank Dillbeck, who until recently had been with the Weapons Company.

The volunteer group provides after-market equipment and handy-to-have supplies to Marines isolated from conveniences.

Among the types of items Supplied to Survive ships to Iraq are 24-volt power inverters, flashlights, two-way radios, GPS receivers, Under Armour T-shirts, mechanic's tool sets, duct tape, batteries for small electronic devices, moist wipes, toilet paper, bungee cords, toothpaste and toothbrushes, and black crew socks.

He talked to his son over the weekend and "packages are arriving and everybody's in good spirits," Schulz said. "They're really starting to scatter the stuff out to the rest of the platoons and the rest of the battalion.

"It's like Christmas when they get the boxes."

MARINE CORPS ORDER 5030.3B
From: Commandant of the Marine Corps
To: Distribution List
Subj: UNOFFICIAL USE OF THE SEAL, EMBLEM, NAMES OR INITIALS OF THE

1. Purpose. To establish procedures to determine whether to
grant permission to use or imitate the seal, emblem, names, or
initials of the U.S. Marine Corps in connection with commercial
and certain noncommercial activities pursuant to section 7881 of
reference (a), and license plates per section 1057 of reference
(a). The Secretary of the Navy (SecNav), in reference (b), has
provided the policy and has delegated to the Commandant of the
Marine Corps (CMC) the authority to subdelegate to certain
subordinate officers, in writing, the authority to grant
permission required by sections 1057 and 7881 of reference (a)
for such use or imitation.
2. Cancellation. MCO 5030.3A.
3. Scope. The provisions of this order requiring prior approval
of SecNav, CMC, or the designee, apply only to use or imitation of
the seal, emblem, names, or initials of the Marine Corps that
suggests official approval, endorsement, or authorization in
connection with a promotion, goods, services, or commercial
activity, and to those noncommercial uses that would tend to
subject the Marine Corps to discredit or that would be inimical to
the health, safety, welfare, or morale of members of the Marine
Corps.
4. Standards

Reproduction and use of the Marine Corps seal, as it is described

b. Unofficial Use or Imitation of the Marine Corps Emblem,
Names, or Initials. Requests from civilian enterprises to use or
imitate the Marine Corps emblem, names, or initials will ordinarily
be approved where such use or imitation merely provides a Marine
Corps accent or flavor to otherwise fungible goods. Disapproval,
however, usually may be expected where such use or imitation
reasonably would:
(1) imply any official or unofficial connection between
the Marine Corps and the user;
(2) tend to create the impression that the Marine Corps or
the United States is in any way responsible for any financial or
legal obligation of the user;
(3) give the impression that the Marine Corps selectively
benefits the particular manufacturer, commercial entity, or other
user, as in displaying the Marine Corps emblem, names, or initials
on musical instruments, weapons, or the like, and in using the
emblem, names, or initials in connection with advertising, naming,
or describing products and services such as insurance, real estate,
or financial services; or
(4) tend to subject the Marine Corps to discredit or would
be inimical to the health, safety, welfare, or morale of members of
the Marine Corps, or is otherwise objectionable.
c. Acceptable Use of Imitation of the Marine Corps Insignia.
No request for permission is required when a use or imitation of the
Marine Corps emblem, names, or initials includes prominent display
of the disclaimer, "Neither the United States Marine Corps nor any
other component of the Department of Defense has approved, endorsed,
or authorized this product (or promotion, or service, or activity),"
as an integral part of the use or imitation. A "prominent display"
is one located on the same page as the first use of the insignia (or
in the case of a product or object other than a document, on the
same side of the product or object upon which the use first
appears), prominent in that use, and printed in letters at least
one-half the size and density of the insignia. The Marine Corps
reserves the right, however, to review or screen any product or
advertisement to ensure the proposed usage upholds the dignity and
reputation of the U.S. Marine Corps and to ensure such use does not
subject the Marine Corps to discredit or adversely affect the
health, safety, welfare, or morale of members of the Marine Corps,
or is otherwise objectionable.

5. Action
a. Redelegation of Authority. CMC hereby redelegates, pursuant
to the authorization in paragraph 4 of reference (b), authority to
grant written permission to use the Marine Corps emblem, names, or
initials, including their use on state license plates, to the
Director, Administration and Resource Management Division (ARDE).
(1) Prior to granting approval for commercial usage of the
Marine Corps insignia, CMC (ARDE) shall forward such requests to the
Director, Judge Advocate Division (JAR), for comment and
concurrence. CMC (JAR) will in turn forward these requests to
Counsel for the Commandant (CL) for concurrence or additional
comment as appropriate.
(2) Written requests for permission to market products
displaying Marine Corps insignia in Marine Corps exchanges will
be coordinated between Morale, Welfare, and Recreation CMC (MWX)
and CMC (ARDE). CMC (ARDE) will send copies of these written approvals
or disapprovals to CMC (MWX).
b. Procedures for Obtaining Written Permission. Requests for
written permission to use or imitate the Marine Corps emblem, names,
or initials shall be in writing and shall be directed to CMC (ARDE).
The request should, at a minimum, contain the following information:
(1) name and address of the requester;
(2) a description of the type of activity in which the
requester is engaged or proposes to engage;
(3) a statement of whether the requester considers the
proposed use or imitation to be commercial or noncommercial, and
why;
(4) a brief description and illustration or sample of the
proposed use or imitation, as well as a description of the product
or service in connection with which it will be used. This
description must provide sufficient detail to enable the Marine
Corps to determine whether there is a reasonable tendency to suggest
such use or imitation is approved, endorsed, or authorized by the
Marine Corps or any other component of the Department of Defense,
and to determine whether it may serve to discredit the Marine Corps
or be inimical to the health, safety, welfare, and morale of its
members, or is otherwise objectionable; and
(5) in the case of a noncommercial use or imitation, a copy
of the charter, constitution, bylaws, and similar organizational
documents of the requester, together with a detailed description
of its function or purpose. Insufficiently specific requests
will be returned for additional information.
