"Home of the free because of the brave" is not an idle statement in my family! Two of my uncles proudly served in the Army during WWII (one of whom was in the Army Air Corps, the precursor to the Air Force), as did my father (also Army Air Corps), who was captured by the Japanese in the Philippines, survived the Bataan Death March, and was a POW for three years. Also, two Marine Corps cousins, one who served during the Vietnam conflict and the other recently retiring from the Corps.

To carry on this proud tradition of serving our country, my grandson graduated from Marine Corps boot camp June 12, 2015, a day my family and I will never forget. We are so proud of him!

I have been married for 23 years and am the super proud mom of three adult children, the stepmom to two stepchildren, and a grandma to nine grandchildren and one great grandson!

After working for Amoco as an IT Computer Security analyst for 16 years, I am now retired and run a home- based scrapbooking business, as well as volunteering as a Master Gardener. I have been volunteering with MarineParents.com as the Company Leader for Fox Company, San Diego since October, 2015. It has been an incredible experience. We go in with the desire to help and bless others, but the recruits and Marine families bless us even more.

I started race walking two years ago after being inspired by my son, Matt, my Marine's dad, and have never looked back! It's been an amazing journey. I've entered mostly multi-race challenges with my last half marathon this past November, 2016. In the months ahead my race card will be packed full, but none will compare to the 42 nd annual Marine Corps Marathon in Washington, DC this October, one that I know will be an unforgettable experience.
