Navy-Marine Corps Relief Society Bahrain Opens

Arlington, VA, Monday, January 5 - Navy-Marine Corps Relief Society (NMCRS) Bahrain opened on Monday, January 5th.  The office is located aboard Bahrain Naval Base in Building 185R.

NMCRS Bahrain is a Local Service Office (LSO), not a Full Service Office typical of larger bases, such as the one located on Naval Support Activity Naples, according to Margaret Copson, Director, NMCRS Naples.  Assistance available at the Bahrain office will include emergency financial assistance and processing of Quick Assist Loans for eligible active duty members. The Bahrain office will be staffed entirely by volunteers and will also provide counseling and education on personal financial management.  The NMCRS Bahrain office will be open
Monday – Thursday from 11:00 a.m. to 1:00 p.m. 

“In 2014, NMCRS provided nearly $69,000 of financial assistance in the form of interest-free loans and grants to active duty and retired Sailors, Marines and their families stationed in Bahrain.  “We are happy for the opportunity to expand our services in Bahrain and continue to serve Sailors, Marines and their families,” says Copson.


The Navy-Marine Corps Relief Society is a non-profit, charitable organization that provides financial assistance and education to active duty and retired members of the United States Navy and Marine Corps, their eligible family members and survivors – when in need. NMCRS is staffed by more than 3,800 volunteers and a small cadre of employees, in offices around the world – both ashore and aboard ships.

For more information regarding NMCRS programs, services or ways to support NMCRS, please visit or call (800) 654-8364.  For more information about NMCRS Bahrain, contact NMCRS Naples at DSN 626-3913.
