I am Astrid Arostegui. I work at as an office manager at
a dental care office in Pomona, Ca, and I am a very
proud Mom to my Marine. When he enlisted, I
worried, but at the same time, I began to look for more
information and learned everything I could about this
journey. I stumbled upon Marine Parents. Looking in the
network, I asked many questions and I was able to see how
many other parents are going through the same thing.
After my son graduated, I found that I can participate in
parent activities fundraiser for the Marines. I ran and
started, in a way, to get in shape. Later it was
something I found I liked to do, now has become a way of
life and I can help to support our troops, too! The
support I found through this organization was priceless
and made the challenge much easier to endure. I am so
grateful to be able to help participate and proud to run
in honor of my son to support the team. With your help,
each step I take will bring service members and their
families that much closer to the support they need.
I ask for you, family and friends to assist in showing
these amazing Marines our appreciation for their service.
Thank you very Much.
Astrid Arostegui R.D.A.
