Gunny Claus Representative Steve Tracy




Gunny Claus Official Website.

The first sighting of Gunny Claus was Christmas in Marine encampments throughout the Forests of Argonne France during WWI. He continues to return through every generation of the Marine Corps with one special mission, "No Kid Left Behind" #gunnyclaus.


Gunny Claus is a Christmas-time Marine who's special duties take him to many places and always to search for kids who need him. He's known to work with veterans throughout the year, some of whom are homeless and families of veterans.


To schedule Gunny Claus you must be an MCCS Area Coordinator, Family Readiness Officer or Commanding Officer of an active Marine Unit. Gunny Claus only makes appearances on Marine Bases, USO and Veteran Hospitals. Other military installations are also considered. All other requests are considered however must be appropriately approved and in the best interest of Kids. Gunny Claus is approved to visit Veterans Hospitals and the USO.


There are many Gunny Claus's in the Marine Corps! There are sightings each year on the West Coast, the East Coast and in foreign Countries. You really just never know where he will show up!
