I am a proud wife of a Marine, mother of a Marine and sister of a Marine. My husband, Jose, served from 1999- 2002 as an infantryman and a part of FAST company. Our son, Caleb, graduated from MCRD San Diego in October 2015, and is currently enjoying his permanent duty station. He is the oldest of 4 children, and has a mindset just like dad. Our brother, Jesus graduated from MCRD San Diego in July of 2017 and is also enjoying his permanent duty station pretty close to our son's location.
In my free time I volunteer with Marine Parents. I volunteered as a platoon parent with Lima Company when my son was in boot camp, enjoying every minute of volunteering. I currently volunteer as an Assistant Coach for the San Diego Recruit Battalions, assisting in training for all new volunteers on those pages. It has been a blessing to give back to so many people and help them through the journey that I once traveled myself.
I had never been a runner, in fact I always believed my body was against any sort of running at all. My husband and I started running together while our son was at boot camp. My husband has committed to being my training partner for this year. Last year I completed the Marine Corps Marathon, also my first marathon, with Team Marine Parents. I am so excited to return this year for another chance to grab some bling.
I want to say thank you in advance for your support to my fundraising goal. I hope this year to surpass my fundraising from last year, without your help that won't be possible. Semper Fi!
